Transit Mixer is a construction equipment that is used to transport the concrete or Mortar from the Batching plant to a construction site. It is mounted on a truck. The Concrete drum is fitted with a spiral blade and slowly rotates around its own axis so that concrete does not becomes solid. The concrete drum has a clockwise movement during the charging of concrete and anticlockwise movement during the discharging of concrete from the Drum.

The concrete carrying capacity of Transit Mixer available in the Market is ranging from 2 cum, 6 cum, 7.5 cum up to 10 cum. The Most used transit mixer on site is 6 cum. So In this article, we will learn how much area of the slab in Square feet can be cast with 1 Transit Mixer.

Consider;

Concrete carrying capacity of 1 Transit Mixer (TM) = 6 cum

Thickness of Slab (T) = 4″ = 0.34 Feet,

Let’s calculate

Concrete carrying capacity of Transit Mixer = 6 cum.

As we Know that, 1 cum = 35.314 Cft, so

Concrete carrying capacity = 6 cum = 6 x 35.314 = 211.884 cft.

**How to Much Area of 4″ Thick Slab can be cast with One Transit Mixer?**

As we Know that; Volume = Length x Breadth x Thickness.

Therefore,

Volume = Area x thickness

Volume of concrete = Area of slab x Thickness of slab

211.884 CFT = Area of Slab x 0.34′

Area of Slab = 211.884 /0.34 **= 623.19 Sq.Ft**

We can cast **623.19 Sq. Feet** Area having 4-inch thickness with 1 TM.

**How to Much Area of 5″ Thick Slab can be cast with One Transit Mixer?**

Consider;

Concrete carrying capacity of 1 Transit Mixer = 6 cum = 6 x 35.314 = 211.884 cft.

Thickness of Slab (T) = 5″ = 0.42 Feet.

As we Know that; Volume = Length x Breadth x Thickness.

Therefore,

Volume = Area x thickness.

Volume of concrete = Area of slab x Thickness of slab

211.884 CFT = Area of Slab x 0.42′

Area of Slab = 211.884 /0.42 **= 504.49 Sq. Ft**.

We can cast 504.49 Sq. Ft Area having 5-inch thickness with 1 TM.

**How to Much Area of 6″ Thick Slab can be cast with One Transit Mixer?**

Consider;

Concrete carrying capacity of 1 TM = 6 cum = 6 x 35.314 = 211.884 cft.

Thickness of Slab (T) = 6″ = 0.5 Feet.

As we Know that; Volume = Length x Breadth x Thickness.

Therefore,

Volume = Area x thickness

Volume of concrete = Area of slab x Thickness of slab

211.884 CFT = Area of Slab x 0.5′

Area of Slab = 211.884 /0.5 **= 423.768 Sq. Ft**

We can cast 423.768 Sq. Ft Area having 6-inch thickness with 1 TM.
