For the customer, high productivity, easy maintenance, versatility, mobility, and regulatory compliance were all essential attributes when seeking a new addition. With its 3 ton mixer capacity, the machine boasts an output of 240 tons per hour and has a hot bin capacity of more than 80 tons. It also offers the largest screening area on the market, with 8m2 available for sand screening and a configuration of six different screens for high flexibility and precision.
The new Lintec CSM 3000 asphalt plant was installed at a production site around 100 km from Bucharest. It replaced an older Lintec CSD 1500 asphalt plant which had been in place for over 12 years. While the CSD 1500 has been doing an excellent job, the customer needed to increase production from the 120 ton/hour the plant is capable of, so opted for the CSM 3000 which has double the hourly production rate.
Stefan Patrascu, Area Sales Manager for Eastern Europe at Lintec & Linnhoff Germany GmbH, said, "The Lintec CSM 3000 asphalt plant is the perfect choice for this customer site. It easily copes with the harsh conditions and deals with challenging aggregates or multiple mixes with no problem. It's got the best fuel efficiency in its class and its many Lintec design features have been specifically targeted to projects in Eastern Europe. The next few years are likely to see an acceleration in infrastructure projects in this part of the world and customers are looking at ways to boost their productivity and efficiency, which is where Lintec & Linnhoff comes in."
A bitumen filling station, natural and polymerised bitumen tanks, and emulsion plant with a 6 tons per hour output all add to the new asphalt plant's versatility and efficiency. Fuel options are provided to owners via a combi burner that incorporates both gas and oil, while 6 x 15 m3 cold aggregate feeders accommodate a high stock of raw aggregates. The high-capacity reclaimed silo in the plant tower provides a maintenance-friendly solution.
The Lintec CSM 3000 asphalt plant is designed with the highest filter area and airflow on the market, delivering best-in-class productivity and sustainable operation. Reliable, stable and user-friendly control come from the asphalt plant's advanced Miprotek M4 software.
