The South Bend Plant was established in 1989. It has two Dry Batch Plants on-site. The main plant is a Ross Explorer 12 cubic yard batch size with 5 separate aggregate bins with 250 ton capacity in plant storage, 3 separate cement silos with 1,800 barrel total capacity, a 6,000 gallon cold water tank and an 8,000 gallon insulated tank for hot water. The water is heated by a boiler heating system. The main plant is fed by a 30 inch wide belt with draws from 8 separate heated inground bins. Six bins have a holding bapacity of 300 tons each, one bin has a capacity of 150 ton and one loaded fed bin is for specialty materials. There is a 2,000 ton above ground storage limestone and sand. A special coverage bin is specifically designed for lightweight aggregate complete with automated sprinkler system to maintain material in a saturated state. There are four other smaller bins for lesser demand specialty items. Admixtures include air entraining admixture, two water reducers, two high range water reducers, two retarders, non-chloride accelerating admixture and calcium chloride accelerator. The plant is computer controlled batching by Auto Control Model 80-40. The AUXILIARY PLANT is a Vince Hagen 10 cubic yard batch plant. Constructed in 1994 and updated in 1997 it has 3 separate aggregate bins with 80 ton capacity, 3 separate cement silos with 1,000 barrel total capacity, and 6,000 gallon water tank is heated by a boiler heating system. The admixtures available include: air entraining admixture, two water reducers, high range water reducer, non chloride accelerating admixture and calcium chloride accelerator. The unique feature of this plant incorporates the use of a 33 foot wide remote controlled airplane hanger type door, allowing payloader to charge aggregate bins. The computer controlled batching is by Auto Control Model 90-10.
