Reach out to us for tailor-made solutions.

Different Types of Asphalt Mixer Machine

In the batching asphalt mixing plant, the twin shaft pugmill is used while the drum mixer is used in the continuous asphalt plant or drum hot mix plant.

Twin Shaft Asphalt Mixer

What Does Asphalt Mixer Machine Work?

Below is the specific working principle of each type of the mixer machine in asphalt mixing plant.

1. Twin Shaft Pugmill

Twin shaft pugmill has a powerful and stronger mixing capacity and is the most widespread mixer type for batching type bituminous plant.

It works in a compulsory and mandatory way. After the aggregates, fine particles and bitumen are weighed through the weigh hopper, they flow to the pugmill. 

The materials are fully blended through the force of rotary shafts with double helix.

Once the materials are stirred evenly and homogeneously, the finished products are  discharged through the slanted discharging gate.

2. Drum Dryer and Mixer

To make the drying and mixing process efficient, LUTON rotary drum dryer and mixer is fitted with geometrically shaped blades.

The integrated burner which is able to be powered by diesel, heavy oil, natural gas or coal helps drive the rotary drum.

The aggregates are mixed through the inner blades, chain, and continuous motion.

For stability and smooth work, the drum is equipped with 4 wheels.

In addition, the drum rotates clockwise to dry aggregates and anti-clockwise for material discharging.

Regular Checklist

1. Check all the joints before operation, and lubricate if there is tigh friction.

2. Check if the drum mixer is flat-mounted.

3. Check the quality of the finished products during the production, in order to adjust parameters for exceptional hot asphalt mixture.

4. Check if there is jam before each use.

5. Check if there is residue after operation.
