Can you elaborate on the challenges involved in making befitting selection of Plant and Equipment for carrying out the construction jobs in the road sector?
It has been observed that the buyers are largely lacking in the relevant information about the plant and the equipment needed to maximize the performance of the equipment and output of the plant. First of all the buyer must define the exact requirement of the contractor before taking a decision on buying plant and the equipment for the project.
The potential buyer should go in for plants and equipment, which are users friendly with easy access to spare parts, components and the availability of prompt after sales services. In addition, they should have detailed information about the manufacturer and his local support systems for help in case of crisis.
The purchaser should select equipment with potential giving maximum output with minimum power or fuel consumed as this will not only decide the buyer’s margins of earning but also take care of the likely increase in their prices in the near future. The equipment purchased must be of rough and rugged designs to withstand the inclement weather conditions including temperature variations. The frequent changes in climatic conditions like rains, snowfall and excessive heat will adversely affect the output of the plant and performance of the equipment. As such, the buyer must conduct a detailed study of the prevailing environs and area of operations before taking a decision to buy plant or equipment.
This will entirely depend on what kind of project the contractor is undertaking and what is his hourly target. Plant or Equipment with higher capacity than the task in hand will impact the profitability as other factors may not match the plant and equipment performance and vice versa. The contractor and owner must keep in mind that road building involves Bitumen and other kinds of mortars prone to chemical reactions once they lose freshness hence the job mix formula is jeopardized. Time is important factor and therefore under or over capacity Plant or Equipment will affect both quality and performance.
Achieving standards of Job mix formula and attaining quality consistently is really a great challenge for both the contractor and the inspecting authorities. Therefore, the selection of right Plant and Equipment is mandatory for precise job mix formula output.
The safety feature is generally ignored by many indigenous manufacturers and at times it cause human injury. We at Capious have devised “AUTO-STOP” mechanisms at the critical operations to avoid such hazards.
Road Construction Equipment needs rigorous and regular cleaning and maintenance after the daily operations. The accumulation of Bitumen or other polluted ingredients damage the plant and Equipment badly. We at Capious have designed some standby machines to clean the equipment and apart from this, we also educate client how to maintain the equipment after their daily use as the practice will not only ensure their longevity but also the durabilit
