Batching Dry Aggregates in Concrete Concrete Construction ...

Batching very dry lightweight aggregates can cause problems if the concrete is to be pumped. Absorption of mix water by the aggregate may cause rapid slump loss and rock jams in the pumpline. But it's difficult to predict exactly how much water will be absorbed and correct the amount of water added at the plant to eliminate the problem.
