The fully comprehensible MARINI offer, which is able to live up to the expectations of even of the most demanding client looking for asphalt plant equipment, is the result of the synergy created with other companies in the FAYAT Group, the only full-liner in the road building sector.
Continuous asphalt plants are so-called because there is no interruption in the process of asphalt production. Unlike batch-type plants, the mixing of aggregates, filler and bitumen takes place in the dryer drum. For this reason the drum, which is considerably longer than a batch-plant drum, takes the name of drum-mixer.
The revolutionary feature of this technology is that the simplicity and economy of the dryer-drum is able to guarantee a high level of performance and high quality of the finished product, providing that accurate checks of the raw materials are made.
There are two different types of continuous plants: the parallel flow drum-mixer (the simplest and least expensive plants) and the counter-flow plants, more efficient from a heat-exchange point of view.
As in traditional plants, the asphalt produced in the dryer-mixer drum is then fed into storage silos, for later discharge onto trucks and transport to the road working site.
FAYAT Group supplies a complete range of continuous asphalt plants, mobile, transferable and stationary types, with the MARINI-ERMONT brand.
