Chinese Business Purchases Four Of The Asphalt Mixing Plants Northeast China Is The Coldest Spot In The Country. The Annual Construction Season Is Much Shorter Than Other Parts Of China So Highly Efficient And Productive Equipment Is Essential. The Construction Season Shortened As It Is Now Includes The A2 Section Of The Beijing Harbin Expressway Expansion Project. Providing Mix For This Key Project Is An Ammann Abp 400 Universal Asphalt Mixing Plant. Purchasing The Plant And Handling The Project Was Longjian Road &Amp; Bridge Group And Some Of Its Subsidiaries. The Plant Was Installed And Commissioned In May 2020. This Spring It Will Produce More Asphalt For The Expansion. The Expressway Connects Very Diverse Cities. On One End Is Beijing The Capital City With A Population Of More Than 21 Million. On The Other End Is Harbin Known As The “Ice City” With A Population Of 10 Million. Harbin Is Located In The Heilongjiang Province. The Expressway Is One Of The Busiest Of The Six Major Southbound Routes In The Province And Must Be Kept Open During The Expansion. There Was A Great Deal Of Optimism Around The Beijing Harbin Expressway Project. It Was Even Listed As One Of The Top 100 Project In Heilongjiang Province. But It Was Delayed Due To The Impact Of Coronavirus. In Order To Get The Project Back On Track Longjian Road &Amp; Bridge Group Put The Abp 400 Universal To Work. The Challenge Was To Meet Production Demands That Would Get The A2 Section On Schedule. Longjian Road &Amp; Bridge Group Is One Of The Largest Most Comprehensive Construction Groups In Northeast China. The Company Is Mainly Engaged In Highway Bridge Tunnel And Municipal Construction And Engineering. It Has Tackled A Number Of Crucial Transportation Infrastructure Projects At Home And Abroad With 28 Self Invested And 44 Holding Subsidiaries – And More Than 3000 Pieces Of Construction Equipment. Subsidiary Longjian Equipment Engineering Co. Operates 13 Asphalt Mixing Plants And Six Pavers. On 1 Sept. 2020 The 18.5 Km Pavement Of The K1172+000~K1190+500 Section Was Finished – Right On Schedule. It Is The Most Difficult And Urgent Section Of The Beijing Harbin Expressway Project. As The Pace Of The Project Heated Up The Ammann Abp 400 Universal Set A Single Day Production Record In The Heilongjiang Province With 8544 Tons Of Asphalt In Only 21 Hours.

The Right Mix

The Right Mix

As Technical Knowledge Within The Road Construction Industry Increases Contractors Are Looking For Cost Efficient Asphalt Plants That Produce High Quality Mixes And Are Easy To Transport And Erect. Italian Brand Marini Part Of Fayat Group Has Been Active In The Mena Region Since The 1960s And Has A Consolidated Network Of Dealers And Agents In The Gulf And Mediterranean Region With Around 500 Asphalt Plants Installed To Date. Its Key Strengths Are Its Wide Product Range The Availability Of Support Structures In The Market And Dedicated And Customised Technology And Solutions Says Michele Viroli Marini Sales Director East Europe And Middle East. “Our Product Line Encompasses The Hypermobile Solution – Xpress – To The Stationary And Containerised Tower. We Have A Fully Customised Solution Called Class Towers Up To The Master Tower Series Which Is Our Most Innovative Product With Almost Full Recycling And High Energy Efficiency.” One Popular Product Is The Be Tower A Stationary Mixing Plant With Output Of 100 240 Tonnes Hourly Production. It Has A Modular Design And Containerised Components Making It Ideal For Overseas Projects. Another Is The Xpress A Fully Mobile Plant With Hourly Production Of 120 200 Tonnes. “With A Compact Design And Engineered For Immediate Erection Even Without A Crane Thanks To Its Hydraulic Lifting System This Is The Ideal Solution For Small And Medium Projects In Different Locations Which Is Quite A Common Situation For Customers In Africa” Says Viroli The Main Customer Segments Are Contractors Producing Asphalt For Their Own Projects Suppliers Who Sell To Contractors And Municipalities And Other Public Sector Organisations In Countries Like Egypt And Iraq. In The Private Sector Around 70% Of Contractors Produce Asphalt For Their Own Projects And Around 30% Are Wholesalers. Overall Viroli Says There Is Increasing Sophistication In The Industry. “We Have Noticed That The General Level Of Technical Knowledge In The Road Construction Industry Has Risen A Lot And Project Nowadays Are Approached With A Higher Level Of Professionalism In Budgeting And Also Taking Into Consideration The Operational Costs Of Equipment – This Was Not Very Common In The Past.” Contractors Are Focused On Energy Savings And Minimisation Of Machine Running Costs To Be More Competitive. Mobile Plants Are More Attractive In Part Because They Require Less Site Infrastructure – Including Deep Excavations And Heavy Concrete Foundations – Than Stationary Plants. “In This Way They Can Save A Big Portion Of Fixed Costs So We Are Seeing An Increase In Demand For Fully Mobile Units.” Marini’s Xpress Towers Are Easy To Transport And Can Be Erected Without A Crane Thanks To A Hydraulic Lifting System. In 2006 Marini Introduced An Asphalt Plant With The Dryer Fine Storage Hopper And The Bag Filter All In Line In The Same Tower Creating A Very Modular Machine That Takes Advantage Of The Natural Circulation Of Heat Keeping The Hopper Hot. “This Concept Links Our Range Of Stationary Mixing Plants Which Are All Tower Designs. This Has Several Advantages – Including Compact Layout With Minimised Footprint On Site And The Higher Efficiency Of The Burner Which Generates Thermal And Electric Savings That We Have Calculated As Reducing Approximately 10% Of Energy Expenses While Running The Asphalt Plant. This Is Quite A Big Amount Of Money When You Consider The Energy Costs Of An Asphalt Plant Over One Year Giving Contractors A Remarkable Advantage.” Fuel Subsidy Reductions In Many Countries And The Fact That Many Plants Rely On Generators For Electrical Power Means Contractors Are Paying More And More Attention To Overall Energy Efficiency Says Viroli. Transportation Costs Can Also Be Significant. The Be Tower’s Components Are Containerised Making Them Easy To Handle And Transport Around The World. Containerisation Also Helps Protect Components During Shipping And Transportation He Notes. When It Comes To Choosing The Right Plant One Of The Most Important Questions To Ask A Contractor Is How Many Times In A Year They Plan To Move It. “We Say That If A Contractor Is Planning To Relocate The Plant More Than Twice In A Year Then Definitely Choose A Mobile Plant. If The Customer Has A Project That Will Last A Whole Year Or Will Need Only A Single Relocation In One Year Then With Our Modular Machines It Is Still Convenient To Stay On The Stationary Side. This Is More Or Less The Border Between Mobile And Stationary.” For Service And Support A Hub In Dubai Supports Customers In The Middle East And Africa With Sales Service And Spare Parts. Marini Also Offers A Telematics Service With A Dedicated 24 7 Service Hotline That Advises Customers Based On The Fault Code Information Their Plant Transmits Back To The Marini Headquarters In Italy. “This Is Something Quite Common For Other Businesses But Not For Asphalt Plant Services So It’s Quite Advanced For Our Industry.” Low Cost Operation Us Firm Asphalt Drum Mixers (Adm) Has Several Ranges Of Asphalt Drum Mixers But Its Two Main Ranges Sold Into Africa Are The Smaller Spl Series With Output Of 54 145 Metric Tonnes Per Hour And The Larger Ex Series With Output Of 109 295 Tonnes Per Hour Depending On Drum Diameter. For The Spl The Entire Asphalt Plant Including All Components Fits On A Single Trailer Frame For Easy Transport To Hard Toaccess Places As Well As Cost Efficient Worldwide Shipping To Emerging Markets. In Practice That Allows Contractors To Move Their Production Plants Close To The Road Construction Site At Relatively Little Cost Says Mike Devine President Of Adm. Designed For Low Cost Per Tonne Production A Key Attraction Of The Plant Is That It Can Be Run With A Single Plant Operator And A Single Loader Operator Or Even Just One Operator Doing Both Functions When Operating At Low Output He Says. The Spl Plants Are Built With A Parallel Flow Design Whereas The Ex Series Is Built With A Counterflow System That Uses Separate Drying And Mixing Zones Achieving A Higher Level Of Heat Transfer And Fuel Efficiency. Devine Says There Is Increased Demand For Cleaner Burning Plants In Some Markets Especially For Plants To Be Situated In Urban Centres. The Ex Series’ Counterflow Design Captures Residual Gases And Reintroduces Them Back To The Combustion Zone Virtually Eliminating Blue Smoke And Hydrocarbon Emissions. Longer Aggregates Drying And Mixing Times Also Improve The Quality Of The Mix. The Spl Series Can Accommodate A Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (Rap) Mixture Of Up To 25% And The Ex Series Can Handle Up To 50%. In Many Markets In Africa The Use Of Rap Is Not Common Including Where Many New Roads Are Greenfield Projects Or Existing Roads Are Considerably Worn Says Devine Noting Nevertheless That Inquiries For Plants That Efficiently Process Rap Are Growing. One Point Of Pride For Adm Is The Longevity Of Plants In Operation Owing To Their Durability And The Ability To Service Them Using Commonly Available Spare Parts. Adm Sells Plants Around The World Including Russia Central And South America In Addition To North America And Has A Strong Presence In A Number Of Countries In Africa Such As Algeria And Nigeria. Demand Varies Between Markets And Is Highly Cyclical Depending On Numerous Factors Including Commodity Cycles And Local Investment In Infrastructure. Currency Rates Also Play A Role – The Currently Low Us Dollar Makes Adm Plants Highly Affordable Even If There Are Slightly Higher Transportation Costs From The Us To Africa Than From A Manufacturer In Europe Says Devine. Adm’s Plants Are Simple To Install And Operate Designed For Low Cost Per Tonne Production. Rap Can Cut Costs And Reduce Waste Use Of Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (Rap) Is Another Market Trend That Is Developing Steadily Though There Are Large Differences Between Markets And Individual Contractor Practices. Two Main Options Are A Cold Mix With Milled Rap Placed Directly Into The Mixer At Different Percentages According To The Individual Use Case And Project Specification; And A Hot Mix Which Is Less Common. Key Challenges Include Carrying Out Laboratory Analysis Of The Material To Identify The Quality And Quantity Of The Bitumen In The Road Being Milled And Proper Treatment Of The Rap Material Before Feeding It Into The Mix Explains Marini’s Viroli. “We Always Recommend To Have Mobile Screens To Divide The Rap In At Least In Two Different Sizes And To Store It Properly So As Not To Affect The Granulometry.” Countries With Large Networks Of High Quality Roads Are The Best Candidates For Greater Adoption Of Rap. The Most Important Factor Is The Quality Of The Bitumen Used In The Original Road And In Oil Producing Countries The Quantity And Quality Of The Bitumen Is Quite High. “This Can Allow Contractors To Produce New Asphalt With A Very Little New Bitumen Added Increasing The Savings In New Asphalt Production.”
