Blockyard equipment consists essentially of a means of moulding blocks, a concrete mixer, and various general- purpose tools and equipment. These are discussed below.

Blockmaking equipment

There are two basic types of equipment, depending on the method of moulding the blocks:

• Stationary machines that mould blocks, one or more at a time, on pallets.
• “Egg-layer” machines that mould blocks on a concrete slab.

Concrete mixer

It is possible to make blocks on a small scale without a concrete mixer. Hand mixing has the advantage of reducing the amount of capital required and providing employment, but may limit output and not always be thorough. Hand mixing should be done with shovels on a concrete slab or flat steel sheet. Never mix directly on the ground because this results in contamination of the mix.

A pan mixer is the only type of machine mixer suitable for blockyards. Pan mixers, with a forced mixing action, can cope with the semi-dry mixes used for making blocks. Drum mixers do not work because they cannot mix the semi-dry concrete. The output of the mixer should match that of the brick making machine. A mixer of adequate capacity for making hollow units may have insufficient capacity for solid units.
