Plant features steel mat foundation, and travel in place dust system and water weigh batcher.
Blair, Neb. (December 19, 2013) – CON-E-CO, an Oshkosh Corporation (NYSE:OSK) company, will unveil the CON-E-CO® LO-PRO® 327D batch plant on January 21, 2014 at the World of Concrete trade show in Las Vegas, Nev., booth N-1019.
The LO-PRO 327D Decumlative batch plant offers several time- and labor-saving features, and delivers the proven performance inherent in all CON-E-CO batch plants.
“The new CON-E-CO LO-PRO 327D hydraulically self-erects, and offers many travel in place features; set-up time, labor, and material costs are, therefore, significantly reduced,” said Neil Smith, CON-E-CO general manager. “The plant’s design directly translates to enhanced productivity. Our mission is to listen and respond to the needs of ready-mixed concrete producers, and the 327D is the newest representation of that mission in action.”
The LO-PRO 327D self-erecting and self-leveling batch plant does not require a crane during installation. The plant can be erected on steel mats, eliminating the need for concrete foundations. It features large capacity (16 cubic yard) aggregate weighing bins with a low 10-foot, 7-inch charging height.
The available central dust control system (including the truck mixer dust shroud), and the optional frame-mounted water weigh batcher travel in place, and further eliminate the need for a crane.
In addition, the optional frame-mounted diesel generator travels in place, and a power supply at remote job sites is not required, eliminating the need for field electrical connections and additional freight.
“Faster set-up, and a range of options that fit the individual needs of our customers, is what the LO-PRO 327D is all about. We look forward to demonstrating its capabilities at World of Concrete,” said Smith.
The LO-PRO 327D completes the CON-E-CO lineup of mobile batch plants, complementing the LO-PRO 327 and LO-PRO 427. “The LO-PRO 327D – an extremely mobile and self erecting decumlative style plant – rounds out our mobile line,” added Smith. “Setting up the 327D can be a one person job, and that’s a tremendous benefit to our customers.”
