Mobile Hot Mix Batch Type Asphalt Plants

What are the different types of hot mix asphalt plants?

Polygonmach mobile or portable hot mix asphalt plant is a type of asphalt plant that is designed to be easily transported and set up at different job sites. Unlike stationary plantsPolygonmach mobile plants can be quickly assembled, disassembled, and moved to different locations as needed. Capacity vary from 40 to 200 tph on design based.

The functions of Polygonmach  mobile/portable asphalt plant are similar to those of a stationary plant and include:

Aggregate Storage and Transport

Aggregate storage and transport are fundamental processes in mobile asphalt plants, designed for optimal space usage and mobility. Unlike stationary plants, mobile units often utilize more compact aggregate storage solutions, such as multi-compartment bins that are directly mounted on the mobile plant chassis. These aggregates are then transported to the drying drum via conveyor belts or slinger conveyors. The design ensures minimal footprint while maintaining continuous, efficient aggregate feed into the mixing process. The mobility aspect allows these plants to be quickly relocated to different sites, making them ideal for projects requiring asphalt production closer to the construction site.

Drying and Heating Process

The drying and heating process is crucial in mobile asphalt plants, ensuring that aggregates are adequately prepared for mixing with the asphalt binder. This process takes place in a rotating drum dryer, which dries the aggregates by tumbling them through a heated air stream. The dryer is compact yet efficient, designed to quickly heat and dry aggregates to the required temperature. The heating system, typically fueled by diesel, gas, or biomass, is precisely controlled to maintain optimal operation temperatures, thus ensuring the quality of the mix and energy efficiency. The mobile nature of these plants does not compromise the effectiveness of the drying and heating process, thanks to the advanced design of the drying drum and burner.

Asphalt Binder Storage and Heating

Asphalt binder storage and heating are pivotal in the production of asphalt, necessitating careful management to maintain the binder at proper temperatures for mixing. In mobile asphalt plants, the binder is stored in heated tanks that are insulated and equipped with heating coils or direct-fired heaters to keep the asphalt binder fluid. These tanks are designed to be easily transportable while preserving the heat of the asphalt binder. The heating system ensures that the binder remains at a consistent temperature, ready for mixing with the heated aggregates. This process is essential for achieving a homogeneous mix and high-quality final asphalt product.

Mixing, Storage, and Loading

The mixing, storage, and loading processes represent the culmination of the asphalt production process in mobile asphalt plants. After heating, the aggregates and asphalt binder are precisely mixed in a mixer unit. This unit is designed for quick and homogeneous mixing, ensuring that every bit of aggregate is coated with the binder. Given the mobile plant's requirement for efficiency and compact design, the mixing unit is often smaller but equally effective compared to stationary plants. After mixing, the finished asphalt is either temporarily stored in silos or directly loaded into trucks for transport to the construction site. The storage component is especially important for projects demanding large quantities of asphalt in a short period, while direct loading is ideal for immediate use, maximizing the efficiency and flexibility of the mobile asphalt plant.

The operation of Polygonmach mobile asphalt plant generally involves the following steps:


The plant is transported to the job site using trucks or trailers.


The plant is assembled and set up at the job site. This typically involves connecting various components, such as the drying drum, mixing unit, and storage silos.

Aggregates and Asphalt Binder:

Aggregates and asphalt binder are loaded into the plant's storage bins and tanks.


The aggregates and asphalt binder are mixed to produce hot mix asphalt.

Storage and Loadout:

The hot mix asphalt is stored temporarily in storage silos or bins until it is loaded onto trucks for transportation.
