We are giving an option for cold RAP system, for which we have added an extra bin in the hot bin system, in case the client would like to use the RAP system in the future.


We have made extensive changes in our new asphalt batch mix series to deliver the rated output. For instance, to gain maximum heat transfer, we have changed the drum flights design, and are using branded burners like Ecoflame and Benetton for fuel efficiency. Aggregate screening is now being done with lower power.

We are giving an option for cold RAP system, for which we have added an extra bin in the hot bin system, in case the client would like to use the RAP system in the future. The plants are completely transportable in 40 feet containers. A total of 9 trailers would be enough to transport the whole machinery to any site. Earlier, we used around 11 trailers. So, we have brought down the transportation cost of our clients.

Vibrant asphalt batch mix plants are easy to operate and maintain. The hardware and software can be used by any operator with basic knowledge of running the machine. We also provide operator training to our clients on plant operation, maintenance, and basic troubleshooting.

Our Asphalt Batch Mix Plants are at par with international premium brands but with lesser owning and operating cost.


We have made improvements in all our plant models, to curtail redundancy and to deliver the rated consistent throughput as per the capacity of the plants. Our plants are also consuming 10% less fuel and giving the right mix quality.

Usually the aggregates fed into the plants have some moisture content and free dust. Free dust forming the cloud inside the dryer drum interfere in heat transfer to aggregates raising the fuel consumption. We are incorporating indigenously developed pre-screening device in our plants for free dust removal prior to dryer drum. The unique pre-screening system in our plants ensures removal of oversized materials and free dust, effecting better heat transfer to aggregates for producing quality hot mix material at lower fuel consumption. Our fuel-efficient modulating burners, manufactured in-house, comes with advanced feature to balance the air to fuel ratio for retention of heat and facilitate the right level of combustion. These burners are suitable for diesel, LDO and FO fuels. Heavy-duty twin shaft mixers ensure production of uniform and homogenous hot mix materials. Our plants are fully enabled to utilize reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) materials at the rate specified by department. Some customers and project contractors occasionally infuse higher volumes of RAP materials, which compromises the temperature of the mix materials.

To take care of any inconsistency in loading of the hot mix material due to adverse site conditions or irregularity in availability of the loading trucks for carrying the mix to the site, we are providing a 20-ton capacity inline storage silo in our 120 TPH & higher capacity asphalt batch mix plants. The inline storage silo also enables faster truck loading of the mix without spillage and segregation. For ease of installation, transportation, and dismantling, we are offering skid mounted, modular designed, batching & mixing tower unit.

Capious Asphalt Drum Mix Plants, offered in output capacities ranging from 40 tph to 120 tph, have incorporated the counterflow technology for better heat transfer efficiency, lower exit gas temperature, reduced plant emission and fuel consumption. The drum mix plants with burners for LDO and diesel oil are available in stationery and mobile versions.

Automatic burner, operating on DC-AC current with auto ignition and automatic on/off within the preset temperature range, is the USP of our bitumen sprayers. Auto ignition eliminates the conventional manual burner firing practise and thus the hazards related to it. Auto burner operation in desired temperature range also maintains the bitumen property. The exhaust of the sprayer burner is pollution free due to absence of an unburnt fuel. Our bitumen sprayers are truck-mounted between 4000- 10,000 litres, and trolley-mounted of 3000 litres capacity.

Our plants consume 4.5 liters/ton of fuel during the heating process as against the industry average of 5 to 5.5 liters/ton, due to our technically advanced burners.


Our 120-160 and 200 tph plants feature Scada-based remote monitoring systems through which remote operation of the plants can be carried out. Information is generated on the volume of bitumen used and the amount of fuel consumed. Our plants are most cost-effective as they consume 4.5 liters/ton of fuel during the heating process as compared to the industry average of 5 to 5.5 liters/ton, thanks to our technically advanced burners developed through our technology partner Cesan. The burners can be used through all kinds of fluids, natural gas and LPG. Our plants give complete combustion, low emission, and high efficiency.

Optimum heating is enabled by the plants’ compact, less volume bag house filters with bigger filtration area. The Normex filter bags are durable up to 200 degrees centigrade. Fresh air systems work at temperatures higher than 200 degrees centigrade. Higher availability and a homogenous mix of the materials are provided by the mixers which are made of high cast manganese and have a double shaft mixing technology.

Based on the technology transfer from our principals and our engineering capabilities, we have made modifications in the design of our plants, in the bitumen tanks, and in some components for easier transportation as per Indian conditions. We have service centers in Kolkata, Guwahati, Patna, Bangladesh, and Nepal, and a central warehouse in Gujarat.
