L&T’s Kansbahal Works solves a chronic issue faced by construction sites
Time was when a 65-tonne sand plant, generally set up many kilometres away from project sites, required at least 30 days to be installed, and was rarely dismantled.

Now, the same can be set up at a project site itself in less than a week. Moreover, when a project is complete, the plant can be dismantled within seven days, and moved out to the next worksite.
It is L&T’s Odisha-based Kansbahal Works which has made this possible! The innovation came after the L&T CEO & MD Mr SN Subrahmanyan recommended that skid-mounted sand plants be made mobile and easily transportable across highways, railways and construction sites.
Thus, in continuation of its endeavour to produce high-quality sand-making plants, Kansbahal Works developed and launched India’s first wheel-mounted Mobile Dry Sand Air Classifier plant known as M-SAC, for short. It is more modular and comes with fewer structures.
This portable machine produces concrete and plaster sand from clay as per IS 383 Standard and ultra-fines (basalt, granite or limestone grains with sizes ranging between 0 and 4.75 mm) using air as input, instead of water. It thus saves water.
M-SAC has many advantages, including precise control of ultra-fines, lower maintenance costs, minimum downtime and higher productivity.
L&T developed and installed the first M-SAC (model mSAC1600) for M/s Samiksha Enterprise’s project near Pune. This testifies to L&T’s engineering and application acumen and the design competency of its sand plant collaborator KEMCO. The highlight of mSAC1600 is its smooth and fast installation at project sites.
Mr Rajendra Garudkar, the owner of Samiksha Enterprise, is satisfied with the product quality of L&T mSAC1600’s plaster sand-maker as he now sells manufactured sand in large quantities to various customers in the Pune-Talegaon belt.
In the fast-growing road and railways construction sector, which requires high- mobility aggregate and sand-making systems, M-SAC is an excellent solution to produce good-quality classified sand.
Another Milestone!  L&T's Kansbahal Works has achieved the milestone of manufacturing and commissioning L&T’s 50th sand plant, an e7-60 advanced sand plant, for SKGC Infra’s project site near Mumbai. The plant is entirely free of dust emissions. Sand produced from it is the best alternative to river sand, helping protect precious water bodies.
