American Geothermal systems can reach colder temperatures than anyone else in the industry. Our chillers and heat pumps can maintain a tank of 35ºF batchwater year round without the use of any additives. Additionally, our heat pumps can maintain the same 35ºF and then with the flip of a switch heat up to 140ºF. We also offer auxiliary natural gas, LP, and electric heaters if hotter temperatures are required. This means your trucks can go farther, and your pours can stay consistent year round.
For aggregate heating and cooling we offer several services. Most notably our Air Blast aggregate heater. With this system we can heat stone and sand while they are in your storage bins. Unlike steam, we produce dry air at 170ºF to keep out ice and extra unwanted moisture.
Since 1981, American Geothermal, Inc. has been the leader in concrete temperature control for the Ready Mix Concrete Industry. Concrete batched at the proper temperature has the proper structural characteristics and cures properly. The key is heating and cooling batch water and aggregate economically and in sufficient volume to be able to meet the demands of your market and your customers.
We’ve learned that industrial work requires industrial equipment. That’s why we manufacture our batchwater chillers and heat pumps specifically for the ready mix concrete industry.
Our heat exchangers, controls, included equipment, and services are all designed for the scenarios that you’ll probably run across on a concrete plant. Just to name a few:
Operating Cost Assumption: ICE American Geothermal CHILLER
Cost per cubic yard $9.60 $0.09 $9.51
Cost per day (600 cubic yards) $5,760 $54.00 $5,706.00
Cost per year (10,000 cubic yards) $96,000 $900 $95,100
We can CHILL water to temperatures ranging from 65°F to 35°F, at a cost as low as $0.09 per yard.
