Live Bottom Batchers


Many precast concrete batch plants use live bottom-weigh hoppers.  The belt on a live bottom batcher is stationary when weighing aggregates. This type of belt is designed to be started under load to move the weighed aggregates to a transfer belt, hopper or skip hoist. 


The advantage of a live bottom batcher is that another batch can be weighed and waiting to go into the mxer, bucket elevator or skip hoist immediately after the previous batch is discharged. This saves time and can increase output.
