Bitumen mixing plant, also known as bitumen batching plant, refers to a complete set of equipment for mass production of bitumen. It can produce various types of bitumen. It is widely used in construction sites such as highways and municipalities. It is necessary equipment for roads, airports and ports construction.
Classification of Aimix Bitumen Mixing Plant:
As an experienced bitumen production plant manufacturer and exporter in China, Aimix provides various types bitumen plants for customers to choose. We divide them into continuous drum mix bitumen plant and forced bitumen batch mix plant. Both two types are designed to meet the actual demand of different construction sites.
Features of Aimix Drum Type Bitumen Mixing Plant:
The continuous drum mix bitumen plant is produced by continuous uninterrupted stirring. The production process is simple and the equipment configuration is simple. As for the metering and drying of the cold aggregate, the process is basically similar to the batch type, but the continuous type has no hot aggregate lifting, screening, secondary metering etc. Heating and drying of aggregates and the stirring of the bitumen mixture are continuously performed in the same drum.
Main Specifications Of Aimix Continuous Drum Mix Bitumen Plants
Advantages of Continuous Drum Mix Bitumen Plants:
- The overall design of the intermittent drying drum and mixing drum reduces the investment cost for customers.
- Simplein structure and easy to operate.
- Easy to install and transport
- There is no interruption in the production process as there is a continuous flow of aggregate and liquid asphalt into the drying/mixing chamber.
Main Specifications Of Aimix Bitumen Batch Mix Plants:
Features of Aimix Batch Type Bitumen Mixing Plant:
As for the forced bitumen batch mix plant, instead, the heating and drying of the aggregate and the stirring of the bitumen mixture are conducted separately. The mixing process is conducted separately in the mixer, one pot and one pot, and each pot is stirred for 45 seconds to 60 seconds. Preliminary graded cold aggregate are sent into the drying cylinder, heat and dried, then the hot aggregate are lifted, and then sieved by vibrating screen. After that, the hot aggregates are stored in the hot silo and then sent to the mixer to be mixed together with the metered filler (mine powder) and binder (asphalt). The equipment measures the ingredients, stirs and discharges in one pot and one pot, which is reason why it is called intermittent mixing equipment.

Advantages Of Aimix Bitumen Batch Mix Plants:
- Batch plants make small accurate“batches” of asphalt mixture through a process that is repeated over and over until the total amount for a project has been manufactured.
- They offer the highest level of flexibility in production.
- They manufacture a very high-quality finished product due to the accurate measurement of each batch produced.
- Due to the intermittent production process, plant operators can easily switch back and forth between different mix recipes if necessary.
Drum Mix And Batch Mix Which One To Choose?
The traditional continuous drum mix bitumen mixing plant has relatively high requirements for aggregates. The raw aggregates does not undergo strict screening and dust removal and directly enters the mixing system. The super-sized aggregates, a large amount of dust, enter the mixture regardless of whether it is needed or not. Undoubtedly that will have a certain impact on the quality of the mixture.
On the contrary, The intermittent batch mix bitumen mixing plant has lower requirements for aggregates. It can remove the irrational components present in the aggregates, and the quality of the finished materials is more secure. In the real production practice, customers can choose either type according to the actual demand of construction project, the quality characteristics of the raw materials should be fully considered, and the bitumen mixing plant equipment should be carefully selected according to the requirements of the ratio and the quality of the finished products.
