Bode Concrete Finds Efficiency with Auto-Vac®

Bode Concrete, one of San Francisco's largest independent Ready-Mix producers in the concrete industry, returns up to 100 yards of concrete daily. Because they are not integrated with an aggregate company, Bode is dependent upon crushed rock, sand and gravel suppliers.

Bode purchased a reclaimer that processed approximately 40 yards of return concrete. The processing stopped when cement fines exceeded specific gravity levels in the reclaimed gray water. The remaining yardage was disposed of and replenished at a high cost.

By removing the cement fines using an ALAR Auto-VacĀ® Filter, Bode now reclaims all 100 yards while maintaining manageable specific gravity batch water levels; saving money and the environment.
