Compressed Earth Block Technology
Hydraform manufactures and sells hydraulic block machines for onsite production of interlocking dry stacking soil-cement blocks. Hydraform specializes in Compressed Earth Block Technology which facilitates the production of high quality, cost effective interlocking building blocks. No burning of blocks/bricks is required which saves trees and cuts back on air pollution. Blocks are produced with local soil (laterite) and 5-10% cement. Minimal mortar is used thus lowering building costs significantly. Hydraform has been manufacturing block machines for over 20 years; this means that through extensive and continuing research we have produced some of the most reliable and robust building machinery available to the world market today. Hydraform also manufactures a range of conventional construction machinery to complement their block-making machine range and is branded Vibraform. The Vibraform machines produce a wide range of bricks: from paving bricks, hollow cement blocks to retaining wall blocks. Hydraform also supplies pan mixers, soil crushers, vibratory sieving machines and a full range of tools for your block yard set-up.
