CENTER OF OPERATIONS: This tower is the center of operations in a transit mix concrete plant. The crane is depositing stone which, along with sand, constitutes the "aggregates." In this tower, stone, sand, water and cement are mixed by weight (volume in the case of water) and deposited into the waiting truck seen underneath the tower. The blended ingredients are mixed en route to the job.
