Beta Ready Mix Concrete supply quality assured ready mixed concrete to all segments of the market. We can supply anything from a 3m3 domestic yard to a 2000m3 raft foundation and more Whether it is large or small, residential, industrial or commercial our aim is to supply the best quality concrete, fit for purpose. We can supply the complete range of mixes spanning lean mixes up to 120 new ton high - strength concrete, shotcrete, self-compacting concrete, high early -strength concrete,waterproof concrete, slip-form concrete, lightweight concrete plus Our state of the art computerised schwing stetter batching system and our extensive fleet of truckmixers and pumps are available for delivery to all locations in Chennai city, Industrial Area, any time of the day or night.
We can supply a variety of different cement types including OPC, PSC, GGBS, and Microsilica.These cement types have become widely accepted as the best way to counteract the aggressive conditions endured by concrete structures in the Chennai region. To combat the challenges of concreting in very hot weather we have industrial ice machines and water chillers at each of our batching plants.
The plain concrete will have no reinforcement in it. The main constituents are the cement, aggregates, and water. Most commonly used mix design is 1:2:4 which is the normal mix design.
The density of the plain concrete will vary between 2200 and 2500 Kg/meter cube. The compressive strength is 200 to 500 kglcm2.
These types of concrete are mainly used in the construction of the pavements and the buildings, especially in areas where there is less demand of high tensile strength. The durability given by these type of concrete is satisfactory to high extent
The reinforced cement concrete is defined as the concrete to which reinforcement is introduced to bear the tensile strength. Plain concrete is weak in tension and good in compression.
Hence the placement of reinforcement will take up the responsibility of bearing the tensile stresses. R.C.O works with the combined action of the plain concrete and the reinforcement.
The steel reinforcement used in the concrete can be in the form of rods, bars or in the form of meshes.
Concrete that have a density lesser than 1920kg/m3 will be categorized as lightweight concrete. The use of lightweight aggregates in concrete design will give us lightweight aggregates.
Aggregates are the important element that contributes to the density of the concrete. The examples of light weight aggregates are the pumice, perlites, and scoria.
The light weight concrete is applied for the protection of the steel structures and are also used for the construction of the long span bridge decks. These are also used for the construction of the building blocks.
The concretes that have densities ranging between 3000 to 4000 kg/m3 can be called as the heavyweight concrete. Here heavy weight aggregates are used.
The crushed rocks are used as the coarse aggregates. The most commonly used heavy weight aggregates is Barytes.
These types of aggregates are most commonly used in the construction of atomic power plants and for similar projects. The heavy weight aggregate will help the structure to resist all possible type of radiations.
The concrete mix when placed will compact by its own weight is regarded as self-consolidated concrete. No vibration must be provided for the same separately.
This mix has a higher workability. The slump value will be between 650 and 750.
This concrete due to its higher workability is also called as flowing concrete. The areas where there is thick reinforcement, self – consolidating concrete works best.
