Precast Concrete

Precast concrete manufacturers need to produce consistent quality products and so need precise control of both the proportioning of the raw materials and the moisture level of the mixed concrete being produced.

Online moisture measurement allows optimisation of cement, admixture and colour use. This enables costs to be controlled.
