When Lycon Inc. of Janesville, Wisconsin needed a central mix concrete batch plant on short notice, they turned to their partners at RexCon. Working with their trusted RexCon sales team, they found the Mobile 5 Central Mix Concrete Batch Plant would meet their production and mobility requirements.
Lycon, a family-owned, Wisconsin-based producer of ready mix concrete, wash sand & gravel, mortars, and building products, needed a portable batch plant to support their growing business.
Thanks to RexCon’s commitment to shrinking lead times and maintaining rolling stock of popular concrete plant and mixer models, RexCon was able to install, deliver, and train the company on their new plant on short notice.
RexCon customized the Mobile 5 to include an additional auxiliary silo for a second cementitious material, aggregate bin extensions for greater productivity, a high-volume, low-pressure aeration blower to keep cement freely-flowing, and a polyurethane-lined dump cone with outboard supports to load truck mixers.
This wet batch plant also featured a newly designed 5 Cubic Yard Tilt Mixer that was first unveiled at the 2013 World of Concrete. This mixer is based on the original Rex mixer design, known worldwide for its single pivot simplicity and mixer efficiency, while introducing several new improvements. It adds on to a rich central mix legacy with new features to make concrete producers more profitable, such as eliminating an entire second motor to boost power efficiency and reducing the cost of every cubic yard of concrete while retaining high mixing quality. The mixer also features a new tilting design that increases dump height and lowers the overall plant elevation, while retaining the low-maintenance and operationally efficient single pivot tilt.
