Batch blenders make modern mortars in China
With no internal moving parts, blenders minimize abrasive wear and simplify cleaning at two SureBlock plants.
In 1997, US-based SureBlock entered a joint venture with China’s Tianjin People’s Building Material Products Factory to make concrete masonry units [CMUs]. Commonly known as concrete blocks, CMUs come in many shapes, sizes, and colors. They are mainly used to erect structural walls, pave walkways, and build retaining walls. Since the industry’s development in the early 1900s, concrete masonry has become one of the world’s most popular and versatile building systems.
