Prominent Features Of Aimix Drum Mix Plant

1. Unique design of Aimix drying drum.

It has the function of heating aggregates, then the aggregates will be transferred from the outlet to the aggregate elevators. The main characteristics are as follows:

1)Our drying drum has the structure of double insulation, which ensures the quick heating and energy saving.

2)There is a temperature measuring device in the outlet of the drum, and the operators will control the temperature at any time.

3)The blades in the drying drum are our patented products. And the blades ensure the drying drum to have high working efficiency. Meanwhile, the drying drum will ensure the aggregates to be heated evenly.

2. Reasonable design of coal burner.

1) The coal burning stoves can rotate automatically. Therefore, it will prevent slag-boning in the hearth.

2) It can control the temperature automatically. Moreover, the operators can change the temperature slightly.

3) The ignition system have the feature of igniting automatically, which assures high safety and reliability.

3. Mixing System.

It is the core part of the drum mix asphalt plant, and it can mix the hot aggregates, powder and bitumen evenly. And the end products is bitumen. The advantages are as follows:

1) It adopts the double horizontal shaft paddle batching machine, and the engine adopts the international and domestic famous brand.

2) The mixing blades and lining boards are made from the chromium molybdenum alloy. So the blades and lining boards have long service life.

3) The mixing cylinder has double shafts, and the shafts rotate adversely. In this way, the batching machine will mix the aggregates evenly and quickly. Moreover, the synchromesh gear ensures the twin shafts to transmit simultaneously.

Asphalt drum mix plant process

1. Cold Feed Bins

The aggregates are loaded into the cold feed bins for delivery into the aggregate dryer. Each bin holds a separate size or gradation. They have an adjustable gate that meters the aggregate onto the moving conveyor belt. The gate openings and the conveyor belt speed control the amount of aggregate introduced into the asphalt drum plant, and that controls the mix gradation.

2. Drying Drum

There are two steps for the drying drum to finish. The first step is to heat the cold aggregate, and the second is to gather the asphalt cement with the hot aggregates. In general, there are parallel flow and counter flow of drying drum mixers.

3. Dust Collector

After drying the aggregate, the dust collector will collect a large amount of the dust particles in the air. And the particle will be recollected in to the tanks, which will save resources.

4. Storage Silos

When the aggregates heated, some of the dust particles are collected, and other aggregates are conveyed to the hot aggregate storage silos. The silos have the features if good insulation, and they can hold the hot aggregate for long time.

5. Bitumen Storage Tanks

The bitumen storage tanks of asphalt mobile drum mix plant are used for storing bitumen before the bitumen was sent into the drying drum.

6. Weighing System

After weighing the aggregates, powders and the bitumen, all of the materials are conveyed into the batching cylinder. Finishing batching, the finished bitumen are sent to the finished product silos. When the trucks are loaded in the loading area, and the weigh scale will ensure the correct amount of asphalt to load in the trucks.

Asphalt batch plant:

1. Accurate measuring and reliable quality.

2. The drying drum ad the mixing cylinder adopt the intermittent design, which ensures higher mixing quality.

3. The asphalt plant sale equips with PLC control system, and the operator can control the whole process by the touching screen.

Asphalt drum batching plant:

1. Cost saving.The whole plant adopts the intermittent design, and the drying drum and mixing drum work in rotation. When the drying drum heats the cold aggregates, and then the hot aggregates are mixed with other materials in the mixing drum. The special design ensures low cost of the asphalt plant sale.

2. Easy operation. The plants have simple structure. When the drum rotates directly, it will heat the aggregates; When it rotates adversely, it will discharge aggregates quickly.

3. Coal and electricity can be used according to the clients’ needs.
