Portable asphalt plant for sale is one type of asphalt plant. What do you know about asphalt plant? As asphalt plant is a significant tool for the road pavement construction, it has been playing a vital role in our life.
Therefore, Asphalt stations are indispensable for construction projects such as highways, municipal roads, airports, ports, parking lots, etc. Asphalt plant has some alternative names such as asphalt mixing plant, asphalt concrete mixing plant, asphalt hot mix plant, etc.
It is the mechanical equipment for mixing asphalt mixture. The asphalt mixing mixture is that the aggregates (sand, stone) in different particle sizes, binders (asphalt or residual oil) and fillers (mineral powder) are mixed according to special proportion.
Classification of Asphalt Plant
Classification of asphalt plant is diverse on the basis of the different reference standard. The asphalt plant can be divided into small, medium and large-size mixing plant according to production capacity.
- Small size: is the plant that the capacity is less 80 tph.
- Medium size: is the plant with a capacity of 100-240 tph.
- Large size: is the plant that the capacity is over 320 tph.
Based on the transportation mode, the asphalt plant can be categorized mobile, semi-stationary and stationary asphalt mixing plant.
- The mobile type: is the plant that filler silo and mixing pot are equipped with tires. Therefore this mobile hot mix plant can be transferred with the construction sites. And it is suitable for county-rural roads and low grade road projects.
- The semi-stationary type：is the plant that the relevant facilities are equipped with several trailers and they can be assembled on-sites. Generally, the semi-stationary asphalt plant is suitable for highway construction.
- The stationary type: is the plant that working site location is static. Meanwhile it has another name – the asphalt concrete processing factory, and it is mainly used for concentrated projects and construction of urban road.
Based on the technological process, the asphalt plant consists of two basic types: continuous (drum) and forced batch mixing plant.
- Continuous (drum) type: is the plant that is the plant that heating and drying of the cold aggregate and the stirring of mixture are continuously carried out in the same drum.
- Forced batch type asphalt plant: is the plant that the heating and drying of aggregates and the mixing of mixtures are forced to be carried out periodically. Besides, the production of asphalt mixture is carried out batch by batch. The cycle length of each batch is 45-60 seconds.
How does An Asphalt Plant Work
The cold material in the cold bin is firstly transported to the dryer drum through the belt conveyor, secondly the dried aggregate is transported to the vibrating screen for screening by the hot material elevator, and the screened aggregate falls into each compartment of the hot material silo.
Then aggregate and powder fall into its own weighing bucket through the relative chamber door with being measured by an electronic scale. Next they are put into the mixing tank; lastly all mixtures are fully mixed, asphalt mixture is formed and unloaded to the hopper car.
The feeding hopper car is unloaded into the mixed material storage bin through the track, and finally the mixed materials are placed on the transport vehicle through the unloading gate.
