VOLUMETRIC CONCRETE MIXERS
When you order concrete from Rapid Readymix, you only ever pay for the amount you use. This is because we have a large fleet of state-of-the art volumetric concrete mixers that enable us to mix the exact amount of BSI Certified concrete you need (as you need it) on site. You use the concrete as more is being mixed, which means that there is no waste and no excess charges! Read our blog to learn more about why you should be using Certified Concrete suppliers.
How do Volumetric Concrete Mixers work?
A volumetric concrete mixer is a mobile concrete batching plant. It features a batch metering system that measures concrete by volume rather than weight, enabling us to produce a more precisely-measured mix. We’re proud to be one of the only volumetric concrete suppliers in South London that runs separated volumetric mixers. This means that our aggregates are carried separately side-by-side in the split aggregate bins on the mixer. This is exactly as they are designed to be used. We only ever use separated virgin aggregates, which are stored in different compartments in the mixer and then batched together in the mixing chamber when the concrete is ready to be poured.
Fast, efficient and tailored delivery
Whether you’re hiring a concrete pump or simply need us to deliver your concrete to your site, we’ll always arrive at the agreed time-slot so that you can continue your building project. We also offer same- or next-day delivery for people who need concrete at short notice.

The benefits of volumetric concrete
Suitable for all project sizes: Volumetric mixers enable us to tailor your concrete order to the exact amount you need, so no job is too big or too small.
Fast and efficient: On average, our volumetric mixers produce about one cubic metre of concrete per minute. We can batch up and pour concrete as fast as you can lay and level it! Our volumetric mixers produce concrete at a fast enough rate for even the most seasoned construction workers!
Multiple batches: As we’re able to mix your concrete on site so quickly, we can produce multiple batches of different mixes if you need us to – e.g. if you want an industrial-grade concrete and a dry lean mix, we can mix these up and pour them one after the other.
No waste: Traditional concrete-mixing methods are often wasteful, as a set amount of concrete is produced and, if a customer doesn’t use it, it must be taken away and disposed (at the client’s cost). Our volumetric mixers enable us to produce the exact amount of concrete you need, so there is never any concrete left over.
