CEMEX demand quality from both our suppliers and ourselves in order to ensure that we provide the best products and service in the marketplace. To achieve this, CEMEX have established and operate a Quality Management System that meets the requirements of BS EN ISO 9001 and QSRMC product conformity regulations and standards.
Procedures are in place to control: -
- Management of Weighing equipment
- Managing residual materials in plant mixers & truck mixers
- Batching tolerances and weigh hopper tares
- Moisture content
- Mixing times
- Workability control
- Admixture addition
- Production control of water cement ratio
All CEMEX batching plants are fully automated and controlled by the GINCO system. The system automatically controls the exact batching requirements of each mix design to ensure consistency and accuracy of constituent parts.
All constituent materials e.g. Cement, Aggregates, Admixtures are CE marked and have been tested at source in accordance with BS8500.
For ready-mix production Quality Control, CEMEX test frequency is well in excess of the conformity requirements of BS EN 206. Samples are taken at 1 in 120 -150m3 produced and are tested for compressive strength at both 7 and 28 days.
