How to Choose a Suitable Asphalt Mixing Plant

Asphalt mixing equipment is a complete set of equipment used for mass production of asphalt mixture, and is necessary equipment for building expressways, grade highways, municipal roads, airports, ports, etc. Generally, the model and production capacity of the mixing equipment are determined according to the working conditions, construction requirements, quantities and construction period of the asphalt pavement.

Asphalt mixing equipment is divided into forced intermittent type and continuous type according to the mixing process; It is divided into fixed type and mobile type according to the mode of transportation. Luton Group can provide you more detailed contents.


Stationary Type or Mobile Type, Which one

If the construction site is fixed, select stationary type plant , otherwise select mobile type plant; If the quantity of work at the same construction site is small and the site is frequently transferred, select mobile type, otherwise select stationary type plant.

Forced Batch Asphalt Plant or Continuous Asphalt Plant, Which one

The forced batch type plant host system is complete, and the single bucket scale is used for batch hot aggregate measurement; The continuous asphalt plant main machine has no screening system and no separate mixing system. The belt weigher is used for continuous cold aggregate measurement. Therefore, its structure is featured by simple structure, few components and convenient installation and maintenance. However, the requirements for the stability of aggregate supply are high.


If the aggregate source, classification quality, moisture content and dust rate are stable, the continuous type can be selected; otherwise, the forced batch type is recommended;
If higher buildings are allowed to be built on the mixing station site, select “forced intermittent type” and “continuous type” if not allowed;

The owner shall first consider the product procurement cost and maintenance and operation cost. The continuous procurement cost and maintenance and operation cost are relatively low, but the requirements for the specification grade and supply stability of aggregates are very high;

When the recycled materials are added in a forced batch plant, an additional recycled system must be added, and the added proportion of recycled materials is usually not more than 30-50%; Continuous type usually has recycling function, and the proportion of recycled materials can usually reach 50%.

Does the Asphalt Plant need to Be Equipped with a Recycling System

The government requires that old materials must be recycled, and as the basic condition for the owner to bid for the pavement works, the recycling system needs to be configured;
The owner considers that it needs to be used for pavement maintenance and construction now or in the future and needs to configure a recycling system;

asphalt recycling equipment

The owner considers the integrity and environmental protection of the mixing equipment function and needs to configure the recycling system to meet the requirements of more pavement construction;

There are two options for configuring the recycling system. First, you can choose the batch asphalt plant, but you need to configure a recycling system; second, you can choose the continuous asphalt plant without configuring additional recycling system.
