In the production line of concrete block, the mortar conveyor and conveyor belt are used for carrying the materials into the hopper of the concrete block machine. According to the conditions, one of the above items should be selected. Now we are going to discuss about the advantage and disadvantages of each one.
Mortar conveyor: Mortar conveyor is a system that carries the ready mix concrete from the mixer to the hopper of feeder at the top of the machine and after filling the hopper, all the materials are poured into the hopper of the machine.
Advantages of mortar conveyor:
In weather conditions such as hot or cold, dry or wet, calm or stormy; the use of mortar conveyor is economical and it keeps the quality of the concrete.
Mixer and batching system are located outside of the production hall. Therefore, it is more cost-effective to use mortar conveyor when the ground level is higher than the production area.
Disadvantages of mortar conveyor:
Where the level of the production area is the same as the ground level around the hall; due to the height of the mixer, the cost of installation and maintenance of the mixer will be high. Therefore, it will be very difficult to repair and wash the feeder.
Conveyor belt: The conveyor belt is a system that carries the ready mix concrete from the mixer into the hopper of concrete block machine. At the bottom of the conveyor belt, there is a hopper. The conveyor belt is sloped and placed in the form of hypotenuse in triangle. The conveyor belt transfers the materials gradually and continuously into the hopper of the machine.
Advantages of conveyor belt:
In using conveyor belt, there is no relation between the ground level and level of production area. It can be used in every level.
.The cost of installation and maintenance is less
Disadvantages of conveyor belt:
In weather conditions such as hot or cold, dry or wet, stormy; using conveyor belt is not suitable; in this situation, the quality of concrete during exposure to air may decrease.
