The native asphalt of most importance is found in the Trinidad and Bermudez Lake deposits. Asphalt from these sources is often called lake asphalt. Nominal Maximum Aggregate Size (NMAS): One sieve size larger than the first sieve to retain more than 10 percent in a standard series of sieves.

Filler is that portion of the aggregates passing the 0.075 mm sieve. It includes the combined mass of crusher dust, any added recycled fines from asphalt plant dust extraction filters and any added filler required to enhance the mix properties. Fine Aggregates. Fine aggregates are aggregates passing a 4.75 mm AS sieve. Hot Mix Asphalt (Asphalt)

Batch Plant Production. First, aggregate travels through the cold feed bins, where initial proportioning of the aggregate takes place. The quantity of material leaving each bin is regulated by the size of the gate opening, or the speed of a belt, or a combination of the two. The aggregate is sent to a drier.

8.15 Calculate the asphalt content of the sample according to Section 11.1. Note 9—Asphalt content reported by the ignition oven may be used if proven accurate. 8.16 Empty the contents of the basket into a flat pan. Use a small wire sieve brush to ensure removal of any residual fines from the basket. Add those fines to the contents in the ...
Batch Type Asphalt Plant | Asphalt Batching Plant | Aimix
Batch type asphalt plant produces asphalt mixtures in batches to ensure the consistency in the mix quality. The plant can be designed with large capacity, ideal for medium to large projects. Due to superior quality of finished products, the batch plant is suitable for paving high-grade roads, such as highways.

Segregation - ON Asphalt
ASPHALT PLANTS Asphalt is produced in a batch or drum mix plant. The most sensitive areas for segregation on any plant include cold feed bins, surge bins and storage bins. On a batch plant it can also occur within the hot bins which are not present on the drum mix plant. Segregation in cold feed bins can be prevented by
