Today’s typical asphalt plant is a drum plant (Figure 1 depicts its main elements). Aggregates are temporarily stored at the cold feed bins (to be used in the production), and are released onto the main conveyor in specific amounts as required by the job mix formula (JMF). In general, the JMF is dictated
• Contractor is responsible for all activities at the batch plant during asphalt production and supply to construction site. • Attached are the Approved Job Mix Formula for Asphalt Binder Course Class "A" and Asphalt Wearing Course Class "B & C "and the applicable Job Mix tolerances.
f) Control of aggregates transferred from quarry stockpiles and delivered to an asphalt plant. g) Control of Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP) transferred from stockpiles and delivered to an asphalt plant. h) Requirements for labelling of storage bays, silos and bituminous tanks.
Cold Feed Bins Aggregates are typically moved from the stockpiles to the cold feed bin using a front-end loader. Cold feed bins are used to accurately meter the different aggregates used in the mix to the drying drum. The amount of each aggregate is controlled by a combination of the gate opening at the bottom of the bin and conveyor belt speed.
