Ammann Introduces Apollo ValueTec - Asphalt Mixing Plants

Ammann’s latest ValueTec Asphalt-Mixing Plants are made for business owners who want straight forward processes and the ability to further customise with options.

“These plants can range from very basic to much more advanced, depending on the needs of business owners,” says Sunil Sapru, Ammann’s Regional Director for India. “ValueTec offers the lowest product lifecycle cost of all plants in this segment.”

Features of Ammann’s ValueTec Asphalt-Mixing Plants

The asphalt batch mixing plants can also be recycled. “Customised options include components that enable utilisation of 25 to 40% RAP,” says Martinho Fernandes, Commercial Manager for Ammann India. “There is a foam mix option for the production of energy-saving warm mix, and capabilities for liquid and solid additives that help the customer to adjust mixes to a specific design.”

Key to the plants is the intuitive CS100 Control System, that has been tried and tested in the world’s toughest environments. The system provides efficiency during production and delivers built-in statistical reports to uncover cost-saving opportunities.

Many of the plants’ features are also built around providing efficiency, and ultimately reducing costs, and thereby, improving profits. A compact, modular four- or five-bin feeder ensures quick transport and assembly, and the plants’ small footprint allows ValueTec to fit into tight spaces.

The quality of mix is consistent from the feed stage due to a large storage capacity. Frequency controlled conveyers extending to the drum inlet chute, ensure hassle-free material delivery. A simple, effective calibration system also provides essential support.

“These asphalt batch mixing plants are all about value; and value is added throughout the production process,” says Sapru. “For example, the low tipping heights for feeder bins eliminate the need for construction of expensive ramps. Instead, a loader can be used with a small ramp.”

The fully modulating burner features a simple, easy-to-adjust mechanism to set the air/fuel ratio for precise combustion and emissions control. The burner combines with the baghouse to ensure that the suspended particulate matter (SPM) levels are within limits and the carbon footprint is minimal. Direct-coupled gear motors also add value by reducing fuel and maintenance costs. The counterflow dryer drum is compact, efficient, and reliable.

Quality is boosted through a screen that uses vibratory motors, providing uniform distribution of aggregate on the screen mesh surface. Circular material movement and transverse transport between the two shafts ensure thorough mixing. The plants feature safety measures to protect plant personnel.

Ammann India supports the plants after their sale with quality, reliable parts. Service packages are available to ensure all maintenance is up to date. A future-ready design ensures seamless addition of upgrades. “These plants are about value from the purchase through the after-sales support – and every step in between,” comments Fernandes.

Ammann’s Asphalt-Mixing Plants — Make In India

Ammann & Apollo products will be manufactured to global standards with technology from Europe and components made in India. The end products will be qualitatively at par with European manufactured products, yet highly competitively priced being “Made in India”. The range of equipment will cater to both the Express/National highways and to state, city, and village roads.

Skill development - Ammann India Academy

The Government’s “Skill India” mission is aimed at generating employment for the youth. To contribute to this mission, Ammann India has identified a skill gap in operation and maintenance of road construction equipment, which has a huge potential for employment, given the equipment population and the thrust on roads.

Ammann India Academy, fully equipped with training kits, simulators, equipment and the latest tools, will, in collaboration with Infrastructure Equipment Skill Council (IESC), offer skill enhancing training for youth on asphalt plants, paver finishers and compactors, to make them certified operators, who are in high demand. The academy will also offer advanced training for existing operators to improve quality and productivity for laying world-class roads.

The Honourable Prime Minister and Minister for Road Transport & Highways, Shipping and Water Resources, River Development & Ganga Rejuvenation in the Government of India are totally committed to having world-class roads in India, covering not just major cities but even villages. Ammann India is proud to be a part of this great movement, and in keeping with its motto “Productivity Partnership for a Lifetime”, will provide the best solutions.
