cheap and durable crude petroleum product, asphalt is most preferred
material for making roads. Asphalts are produced, processed and mixed in
either mobile asphalt plant or stationary asphalt plant. Except mobility
there is no other difference between stationary and mobile asphalt mix
Stationary asphalt mix plant like mobile plants has dryer, mixer, fuel
tank, conveyor, feeder, bitumen tank etc.
The aggregates are dried mixed
and discharged directly into an insulated holding of the asphalt mobile
plant. Liquid asphalt is heated through electric heating system. The
asphalt mixed in stationary plant is transported to various construction
sites through different carriers.
Asphalts mixed in stationary plant has many applications :
- Construction, maintenance and repairing of roads.
- Construction of over bridges.
- Paving of streets, rural roads, etc.
- Highway constructions.
- Airport runways etc.
