REPORT OF INDUSTRIAL VISIT TO ASHTECH RMC PLANT

DELHI TECHNICAL CAMPUS, GREATER NOIDA

DEPARTMENT OF CIVIL ENGINEERING

INDUSTRIAL VISIT TO ASHTECH RMC PLANT ON 18.02.19

 The Department of Civil Engineering organized an industrial visit to ASHTECH RMC Plant, Greater Noida on 18th February 2019 for 2nd and 3rd year students.

ASHTECH, an ISO 9001:2008 certified organization, has earned an outstanding reputation as a leading processor, distributor, manufacture, importer & exporter of Building Materials.

Ready-mix concrete is concrete that is manufactured in a batching plant, according to a set engineered mix design. Batching plants combine a precise amount of rock, sand, water and cement together by weight, allowing specialty concrete mixtures to be developed and implemented on construction sites. Ready-mix concrete is often preferred over other materials due to the cost and wide range of uses.

ASHTECH, Greater Noida has two plants for Ready Mix Concrete (RMC) Manufacturing. The practical working of these plants, starting from giving the software input (calibration) for design mix to obtaining the required quantities of raw materials from silos, followed by preparation of RMC and finally loading the transit mixer was keenly observed by the students. The details of the plant & all queries were handled by the respectable General Manager of the plant, Mr. Basant Kumar.

The industrial visit was very beneficial to the students and the Department looks forward to many more endeavors.
