Small Asphalt Plant

A small asphalt plant is highly portable and cost-effective, and the productivity is usually below 40t/h. It is necessary equipment for constructing expressways, grade highways, municipal roads, airports, etc. According to the mixing method, the plant can be divided into batch type asphalt plant and continuous asphalt mixing plant.

Continuous asphalt plant: can continuously produce asphalt mixture without interruption. The heating and drying of aggregate and the stirring of mixture are carried out continuously in the same drum.

If the scale of the project is small, the grade is low, and there is no high quality requirement, then the drum mix plant is a cost-effective choice.

Models: ALT20 (stationary), ALT40, ALT60, ALT80, ALYT20 (mobile), ALYT40, ALYT60 and ALYT80.

Batch Type Asphalt Plant Supplier
Batch Type Asphalt Plant

Batch type asphalt plant: produce asphalt mixture in batches, that is, the heating and drying of the aggregate and the mixing of the mixture are forced to be carried out periodically.

The plant is suitable for large-scale high-grade road construction project.

Models: ALQ40 (stationary), ALQ60, ALQ80, ALQ100, ALQ120, ALYQ60 (mobile),  ALYQ80, ALYQ120 and ALYQ160.

Buying The Right Small Asphalt Plant

How can you choose the best asphalt mixing plant? The answer is not as simple as you think. Factors such as the nature of the project, project requirements, procurement budget, mixing plant capacity, model and type, and national regulations all need to be considered.

When choosing an asphalt plant, the one that suits you is the best.

When choosing an asphalt mixing plant, the one with the high production capacity and the top configuration is not always the best. The one that suits you is the best, specifically:

  • The capacity of the asphalt mixing plant should be suitable for your project scale.
  • Batch type or drum type, which one suits your project quality requirements.
  • Stationary or mobile, which one suits your project characteristics.
  • The procurement budget should be suitable for your project cost.
  • The size of the entire plant should be suitable for your site area.
  • The dust removal effect of the dust removal device should be adapted to your local environmental protection requirements.
  • The fuel used in the burner should take into account the energy accessibility and cost budget.

5 steps to help you choose a suitable small asphalt plant

1. Determine the purpose and type of the plant

You should determine the purpose and type of the plant according to the engineering requirements:

  • If the project is small, no additives are required, and the grade is not high, then choose a drum mix plant. If the project is a newly built road with large scale and high grade, a batch type asphalt mixing plant should be selected.
  • For small pit repairs on old roads, a small mobile asphalt plant is sufficient.
  • If the project has a long road mileage and a narrow road surface where the operating position of the plant should be changed many times in a short period of time, it is more appropriate to choose a mobile asphalt mixing plant. If the mileage is not particularly long, and the road surface is more than 4 lanes in both directions, a stationary plant is more suitable.
  • If the project is in a hilly area and the installation space of the mixing plant is limited, a small-capacity portable asphalt plant is the wise choice.

Tips: if the operating site of the plant is very far away from the project construction site, it is best to first calculate the time required for the truck to reach the construction site from the plant when the truck is fully loaded with finished materials during peak hours. If the time is too long, it is recommended to choose a mobile plant.

2. Determine the capacity of the plant

According to your project scale, calculate the average output per hour of the asphalt mixing plant you need.

3. Determine whether it can meet local road construction standards and environmental protection and energy saving requirements

Different countries and regions have different road construction codes which stipulate the particle size of sand and other cold materials used for road paving, and the screen size needs to be adjusted for this. They also have different environmental protection and energy conservation standards. Although the cost of environmentally friendly asphalt batching plant is high, the investment benefit is more considerable in the long run.

4. Determine price range

The procurement budget directly determines how much capacity and type of asphalt plant you can choose. In order to make full use of the budget and avoid unnecessary expenditures, it is necessary to consider the cost performance of different types of asphalt plants.

5. Determine the manufacturer of the small asphalt plant

When choosing an asphalt plant manufacturer, the following six points are available for reference:

  • See if the manufacturer focuses on the production of asphalt plants.
  • Whether the business has been operating long enough.
  • Whether the product series and models are complete.
  • Whether the production process is advanced and whether it pays attention to product details.
  • Does the manufacturer provide after-sales service? If the manufacturer can respond and follow up to solve after-sales services such as installation and maintenance guidance, worker training, parts supply, etc. you can save a lot of time and cost.
  • Look at the manufacturer’s management system and corporate culture.
