CON-E-CO Unveils Self-Contained, Easy To Erect LO-PRO 327S Batch Plant at World of Concrete
CON-E-CO, an Oshkosh Corporation company, has unveiled the new CON-E-CO LO-PRO 327S mobile batch plant at the World of Concrete Exhibition in Las Vegas. The LO-PRO 327S achieves a new level of performance with a compact, self-erecting and self-contained batch plant that features an in-truss dust control system, a weighed water batcher, and the LO-PRO’s blending cement batcher and live-bottom aggregate batcher for industry-leading productivity. The LO-PRO 327S will be on display at booth N917.
“The LO-PRO 327S is the newest addition to the ever expanding CON-E-CO line of mobile batch plants; it’s all about faster setup and maximum productivity,” said Neil Smith, CON-E-CO general manager. “The built-in hydraulic system self erects, while the low overall height means the 327S can be set on steel mats. Those are huge benefits for concrete producers who need to minimize start-up time and setup costs.”
In addition to eliminating the need and associated costs of a crane for setup, the LO-PRO 327S features a frame-mounted truck mixer dust control system (or central dust control system) and a weighed water batcher that travel in place with the plant, thereby eliminating additional freight costs.
The plant’s 13-foot, 2-inch height from grade to the truck mixer charging hood eliminates the need to excavate for truck clearance. “As we developed the LO-PRO 327S we gathered a great deal of feedback from customers across the country. The end result is a new level of performance in a mobile, self-erecting, and self-contained batch plant,” added Smith.
