Successful Recycling Efforts for Ready Mixed Plant

Located in San Francisco, family-owned producer Bode Concrete has ties that go back to 1915.

Bode Concrete has stepped up recycling with a cement fine capture method that maximizes usage of reclaimed water in a minimal timeframe. Processed water from a morning delivery's washout can be part of the batch for an afternoon load, thanks to the installation of an ALAR Engineering Auto-VacĀ® system.

Bode runs the largest capacity Auto-Vac Alar has delivered in concrete, with a 6 x 9 ft. drum. The installation can take up to 20,000 gallons of slurry in an eight-hour period down to the specific gravity range suited to a wide variety of mix specs.
