Factors to consider when purchasing asphalt mixing plant
Release Time:2023-09-26
There are many products for asphalt mixing plants in terms of manufacturers and specifications. When we choose an asphalt mixing plant, we must adapt to local conditions and choose products with selective price comparisons based on the needs of the site size and production scale. You can’t just pursue quality, nor can you just pursue low price. The following factors should be considered when selecting an asphalt mixing plant.

The choice of asphalt mixing plant is mainly based on the reliability and versatility of the equipment. It also requires high measurement accuracy, good mixing quality, high production efficiency, low energy consumption, etc.

The production capacity of the asphalt plant is judged according to the size of the production scale.

Depending on the size of the construction site, an asphalt mixing plant building or an asphalt mixing plant can be selected. When choosing an asphalt mixing plant, the aggregate needs to be upgraded twice, the layout is flexible, the manufacturing and installation cycle is short, and the one-time investment cost is low.

It is unwise to fully pursue the technical performance of the equipment, which will increase unnecessary investment. However, only pursuing low investment and reducing the technical performance of the equipment will increase the use cost, which is also undesirable. It is reasonable to choose the right price/performance ratio.

Asphalt mixing plants are divided according to the process flow: intermittent and continuous forced mixing, and drum type with self-falling continuous mixing. According to its installation situation, it can be divided into fixed type and mobile type. In the former, all units are fixedly installed on the site and are mostly used in situations where large-scale projects are concentrated. The latter is large and medium-sized, with all the units installed on several special flatbed trailers, hauled to the construction site and then assembled and erected, and is mostly used in highway construction projects; for the small ones, the unit is installed on a special flatbed trailer, which can It can be transferred at any time and is mostly used in road maintenance projects. The drum-type asphalt concrete mixing equipment was developed in the 1970s. It is characterized by the continuous drying, heating and mixing of the sand and gravel in a drum. The burner is installed in the center of the feed end of the drum and is heated along the material flow. The hot asphalt liquid is sprayed into the front half of the drum, mixed with the hot sand and gravel in a self-falling manner and then discharged, which not only simplifies the process but also reduces dust flying. The unloaded finished products are stored in the finished product warehouse for later use. This kind of mixing equipment has applied electronic technology and new testing instruments in recent years, which can realize production automation and strictly control the mix ratio to ensure the quality of the finished product.
