With an extensive experience in the construction machinery industry, Aimix group has the knowledge and expertise to help customers select and specify the most productive and most economical stationary asphalt plant for their projects. Aimix complete line of plants, and wide range of capacities, features and designs, give customers the choices and flexibility to create the most appropriate solution.
Types Of Stationary Asphalt Plant
There are two basic types of stationary plants used in the process of making asphalt mixtures: batch type and drum type:
1. Batch type asphalt plant:
It produces asphalt mixtures in batches, which can ensure consistency in mix quality. Batch plant is a great choice for paving high-grade roads due to high level of flexibility, accurate measurement of each batch produced, high-precision screening and environmental protection.
Specifications of batch plant:
|Diesel, heavy oil, natural gas, liquefied gas, pulverized coal
|Gravity dust filter+ Cyclone dust filter + Bag dust filter/ Water dust filter
|Bag dust Filter area(m2)
|Fan motor (KW)
|Option, 10-40T or Depend on request
|Asphalt heating system
|Heat conducting oil furnace or Direct heat asphalt tank
2. Drum mix plant:
The plant produces asphalt mix through a continuous process, where the heating and drying of the aggregate and the agitation of the mixture take place in the rotary drum. With simple system and low investment costs, drum plants are suitable for small-scale and low-grade roads construction.
Specifications of drum plant:
|Effect of De-dusting(mg/Nm3)
|Dust discharge concentration≤50(Bag dust)
|Volume of Cold Aggregate Storage(m3)
|Manually, Semi-Auto/ Auto
How To Choose The Right Stationary Asphalt Mixing Plant?
When choosing a stationary asphalt mix plant, the one with the highest capacity and top configuration is not always the best, but the one that suits you needs is the best. There are a number of factors to consider in the selection of an asphalt plant, including project requirements, procurement budget, mixing plant capacity, model and type, national specifications, etc. Specifically speaking:
- The capacity of the asphalt plant should suit the scale of the project.
- Batch plant and drum plant, which one suits the quality requirements of the project.
- The procurement budget should consider your project costs.
- The size of the entire stationary asphalt batching plant should accommodate your site area.
- The dust removal effect of the dust removal device should meet your local environmental protection requirements.
- The fuel used by the burner should consider your energy access convenience and cost budget.
The following are several steps to help you choose the right asphalt plant for your project:
1. Determine purpose and type of your plant
The purpose and type of the asphalt mixing station should be determined according to the engineering requirements:
- If the project is new road construction with large scale and high grade, a batch type asphalt plant should be selected; if the project is small, does not require additives, and is not high grade, then a drum mix plant is a cost-effective choice.
- If the road is long and narrow where the working position of the plant should be changed multiple times, a mobile asphalt mixing plant is a better choice. If the mileage is not particularly long and the road is wide, a stationary plant is more suitable.
- For small pit repairs on old roads, a mobile asphalt plant is sufficient.
Tips: if the location of the asphalt plant is very far from the project construction site, you’d better calculate the time required for the truck to reach the construction site from the asphalt plant with a full load of finished products during peak hours. If the time is too long, it is recommended to choose a mobile plant.
2. Determine capacity requirements
According to the scale of the project, calculate the average output of the plant per hour. Generally, the plant can operate at 80-90% of capacity most of the time.
3. Compliance with local road construction standards and environmental protection and energy conservation requirements
Different countries and regions have different road construction codes, which specify the particle size of the cold materials such as sand and gravel used in paving, and the screen size needs to be adjusted for this. And also there are different environmental protection and energy saving standards. Choosing environmentally friendly asphalt plant may be costly, but in the long run, the return on investment will be greater.
4. Determine your purchase budget
The purchase budget can determine how much capacity and what type of asphalt batching plant you can choose. In order to make full use of the budget and avoid unnecessary expenditures, you should consider the price / performance ratio of different types of asphalt plants from different manufacturers.
5. Determine stationary asphalt plant manufacturer
Choosing a reliable asphalt plant manufacturer is critical to reducing your cost of operating and maintaining the plant. There are several points to consider when choosing a asphalt batching plant manufacturer:
- Does the manufacturer focus on the manufacture of asphalt plants, and whether they have extensive experience?
- Do they offer an extensive range of asphalt plant series?
- How about the production process and product details?
- Do they have comprehensive after-sales service?
