Formerly, if a batch turned out to be out of spec, there was no way to fix it, and no way to guarantee that the next batch wouldn't be out of spec as well.
With AIRtrac™, everything changes.
AIRtrac™ is a sensor that is installed in the mixer, similar to a Hydronixs probe for moisture measurements. AIRtrac™ measures the total air content and temperature of concrete, while it's mixing. Instead of waiting for results, you can know the moment that your concrete mix begins to go out of spec—and now, you can do something about it.
Eliminate wasted time
Eliminate wasted time
Prior to AIRtrac™, the only way to determine the air content of plastic concrete was to perform manual tests after the concrete had been removed from the mixer. Manual testing adds time and doesn't provide real-time data.
Gain higher throughput and lower costs
Know the air content in every batch without manual testing.
Minimize loss of productivity and cost of wasted materials.
Manage and optimize mixes and processes.
Precasters can now have insight into every batch and the effects of dozens of factors that can change daily, if not hourly. This unprecedented granularity allows for overall process improvement and often higher throughput. Optimize your process, control costs, and minimize wasted material.
Why should precasters choose the AIRtrac™ system?
Air in concrete, whether entrained or entrapped, can be challenging to manage and lead to undesired results such as low strengths, out-of-spec concrete, bugholes and more. It's time to invest in a new precast technology that lets precasters enjoy consistency and productivity savings at unprecedented levels. Simply put, the AIRtrac™ system helps precasters get their mix right every time with minimal waste.
