Different Types of Bitumen Hot Mix Plant

There are some different types of Bitumen hot mix plant, which are classified by various methods.

According to the mobility of the plant, they are divided into Stationary hot mix bitumen plant and mobile/portable hot mix plant.

According to the production methods, they are cataloged into hot batch mixing asphalt plant and continuously drum hot mixing asphalt plant.

According to the producing capacity of bitumen hot mix plants, they are classified into mini/small hot mix plant, medium hot mix bitumen plant and large size hot mix plant, as well as super large hot mix bitumen plant.

  • Mini/Small Hot Mix Plant: the capacity is less than 80t/h
  • Medium Hot Mix Bitumen Plant: the capacity between 100t/h and 240t/h
  • Large hot mix bitumen plant: the capacity is more and 320t/h

Bitumen Hot Mix Plant VS. Asphalt Batching Plant

Usually, on a macro perspective, bitumen hot mix plant is another name of asphalt batching plant, which is from the hot mix method of bitumen production process. In the process, in order to yield of asphalt mixture products with accurate proportion, raw aggregate materials should be dried and heat to maintain the water rate to standard value ( 3%, under Standard ambient humidity and atmospheric pressure) .

Moreover, for even and thorough mixing, the asphalt materials should be heat into liquid state at 180℃-220℃.

At last, the finished asphalt products should be shortly kept at 160℃-180℃ for 4 to 6 hours.

But on a micro perspective, bitumen hot mix plant is different from asphalt batching plant.

The main difference is from the production methods. Hot mix plant manufactures bitumen in mixing drum continuously or intermittently. Asphalt batching plant mixes materials batch by batch.

Hot Mix Bitumen Plant Working Process

The working process of hot mix bitumen plant mainly includes the following steps.

  • Cold aggregates are transported, dried, heated, screened and measured, then fed into the mixer machine.
  • Measured mineral powder from the powder silos is also sent into the mixer by the screw conveyor.
  • Asphalt is heated into liquid and kept at 180-220℃. After accurate measurement, it is also pumped into the mixer drum.
  • Mixer machine uniformly mixes all the three kinds of raw materials to ensure fully contact fusion and finally form the asphalt concrete mixture.

All the operations run orderly according to the instructs from the electric control system.
