Asphalt and cement plants are an essential component in the production of asphalt and concrete. These plants consist of several components that work together to create the mix of materials required for the production of these products.

TECSI srl renovates (revamping) and modernises (retrofitting) dated installations by bringing them up to date.

Revamping and Retrofitting

Revamping and retrofitting of asphalt plants are necessary to maintain maximum plant efficiency and safety. Revamping involves replacing obsolete components or improving the technologies used, while retrofitting aims to reduce production costs and improve product quality. These interventions are essential to adapt plants to new regulations and technologies and to ensure optimal production efficiency. Constant attention to plant revamping and retrofitting is essential to ensure maximum product quality and safety.

Drum dryers and elevators

Drying drums are essential components in asphalt production.

Drying drums are used to dry and heat materials such as sand, gravel or other aggregates before mixing. Drying drums consist of a rotating cylinder, inside which the materials are heated by a burner. The heat dries the materials, removing moisture and preparing them for mixing.

Elevators are used to transport materials from the dryer drum or filler from silos to the mixing tower.

Elevators can be chain or belt driven, depending on the specific needs of the plant and the materials used. The choice of the type of lift also depends on the amount of materials to be transported.

Hoppers for concrete aggregates

Aggregate hoppers are essential components for the production of concrete and other construction materials. These components are used to store aggregates needed for production, such as sand, gravel and other similar materials. Aggregate hoppers are designed to be strong and durable, so that a constant supply of materials needed for production can be guaranteed.

Aggregate hoppers can be made of different materials, including steel, wear-resistant steel and stainless steel. In addition, they can be designed in different sizes and capacities, depending on the specific needs of the plant and the amount of materials required for production. Some hoppers can be equipped with a mechanical extraction system such as a conveyor belt to facilitate the transport of materials.

Conveyor belts for conglomerate plants

In order to ensure maximum production efficiency, asphalt plants use high-quality conveyor belts to transport the materials precisely and without waste. The choice of the right conveyor belt depends on the specific requirements of the plant and the characteristics of the materials used.

Silos, hoppers, dryers, mixers, screens, elevators and bag filters

Other important components of asphalt plants are the silos and hoppers that are used to store the materials required for production, such as sand, gravel and milled asphalt for recycling. The production of these components requires special attention to the quality of the materials used and the precision of processing, to ensure the safety and durability of the plant.

Sieves or vibrating screens are essential for the selection of particle sizes, which are then dosed before mixing.

Last but not least, bag filters for process dedusting and reuse of waste materials are crucial in their proper sizing.

The materials used and the construction details are always fundamental in the construction and durability of each component of the plant, whether they are: drying drums, mixers, screens or bag filters, what counts is the decades of experience at TECSI srl.

Innovation, environment and safety

Modernising plants means giving them the capacity to keep up with new plants that aim to reuse a significant percentage of the milled asphalt exported from resurfacing roads. This practice, which entered asphalt production with modest percentages, is becoming more and more established, and the percentages increase considerably with the revamping of outdated plants, thanks to new equipment and upgrades.

Industry 4.0

Working in the asphalt and concrete sector requires constant attention to (technological) innovations and environmental regulations. Outdated asphalt plants are therefore modernised with computerised production control, resulting in ever more exact recipes that meet the requirements of contracting authorities.

Those who take this path of plant renewal, in addition to the leap in quality and quantity of production, will also be able to benefit from a significant tax credit, thanks to Industry 4.0 legislation, reducing the costs of innovation.

In addition to guaranteeing the highest product quality, not least is the focus on greater respect for the environment and safety at work.

TECSI srl has carried out revamping and retrofitting to the full satisfaction of the customer on various installations.
