Asphalt Batching Plant
A must-have for the construction companies these days, an asphalt batch mix plant has many
functions. The asphalt has complicated functions which make it different than the drum type
plant. The Asphalt batch mix plant is widely used in various civil constructions.
Asphalt is prepared by mixing sand, stone dust and aggregates in specific ratios to get the
correct consistency. This mixture is then heated at high temperature and a specific proportion
of bitumen is given in the mixture at a standard temperature and our Asphalt is ready.
Asphalt plants are mainly of two types
Asphalt batch mix plants: The Asphalt batch mix plant produces hot asphalt in batches.
Asphalt drum mix plants: These plants also produce asphalt but in a continuous process.
In these plants, the difference is more than the mode of production. The quality of the Asphalt
produced in Batch mix plant and Drum mix plant is also different. These plants can also produce
asphalt using recycled materials.
How is Asphalt produced?
Asphalt is produced by blending and heating aggregates and liquid asphalt cement to produce a
material that complies to the standard product mix design and job mix formula to ensure that
the produced asphalt will have the required characteristic of durability, stability, rut resistance,
The batch mix Asphalt plant produces Asphalt in batches. The output volume of a batch mix
plant tends to be less than that of a drum mix plant, as drum mix plants tend to produce
asphalt in a continuous process rather than in batches. Yet a batch mix plant provides great
flexibility in the amount of mixture produced and the variety of materials that can be
incorporated into one batch. The amount of hot mix asphalt produced in each batch may vary
from metric tons to 5.5 metric tons. The batch mix plants usually have a production capacity of
up to 350 metric tons.
The various components of a batch mix plant are:
Feeder: the feeder stores and feeds the cold aggregates.
Burner: In batch mix asphalt plant, the burner is used for drying of aggregates.
Fuel tank and dryer burner: the fuel tank stores fuel and supplies it to the burner when
needed. The dryer burner dries the aggregates.
Primary scalping screen and charging conveyor: the scalping screen filters oversize
materials from the aggregate.
Pollution control unit: the primary and secondary pollution control unit, collects the
heavy and fine particles.
Asphalt tanks: the asphalt tanks stores and heats the bitumen.
Filler bins: the filler materials are stored in the filler bins, which are later transferred.
RAP feeder: the RAP feeder feeds the recycled materials.
Control panel: all the functions of the entire plant are control from the control panel.
Storage silo: before the hot mix asphalt is dispatched it is stored in the storage silo.
The Asphalt Batch mix plant is essentially a rotating cylinder that consists of series of flights in
the inside, which takes the raw material and heats it when the hot air from the burner comes
into contact with it. Our specialized team at Vibrant has worked towards developing the batch
mix drum that is capable of uniform heating of the aggregates of different sizes with the highest
thermal transfer efficiency.
The asphalt batch mixer from Vibrant engineering features many modern and advance
technology. These plants, when fed with the right raw materials automatically process all the
steps in synchronized order to give you the best quality product for long lasting constructions.
Vibrant’s sturdy Asphalt Batch Mix Plant is monumental in built having used the high quality
materials during its manufacturing and has garnered many eyeballs from the visitors at the
