Improving Performance with Driver Training on Slump

Improving Performance with Driver Training on Slump

At Folsom Ready Mix, we educate all of our drivers in the ASTM Standard Specification for Ready Mix Concrete. Customer service is our top priority and we believe that starts with knowledgeable employees.  Our customer feedback is extremely important to us and have since had customers in the field bring up concerns with drivers and the inconsistency around our slump. As a result, we have made a big push to dedicate time and resources to completing slump training with all drivers recently. Continued education is the key to our success and improvement. The ASTM Standard Specification for Ready Mix Concrete that we educate our drivers with is extremely thorough and meticulous.

Reducing the amount of water creates a higher density, and higher quality, cement paste. Water content can’t simply be reduced without taking any other measures. Higher water content is needed so that the concrete can remain workable. If you simply reduce the amount of water, without taking any additional measures, you might end up with a stiffer mixture that you can’t work with very well and that may result in placement problems. This is where water reducers come in.
