HMA is a much quicker process. In terms of what is more beneficial it totally depends on how hard the water is in your area, Stenker discus and a lot of UK bred discus are fine in relatively hard water and will even breed in hard water but much reduced survival rate of the young.
used with minimal additional processing. screens for sizing RAP materials at plants allow stockpiles of different size materials to be produced, increasing the flexibility of using RAP in mixes. Batch plants and drum plants are typically manufactured to handle RAP materials. The HMA industry, in 2006, found itself in a
HMA Batch Plant Batch plants, which produce HMA in individual batches, are the older of the two types of HMA production facilities. HMA was originally made in batches; it was not until the 1970s that drum plants became a popular HMA production option.
RAP as a Constituent in HMA. The most common RAP use is as a constituent in HMA. Basically, new HMA is produced at a batch or drum plant to which a predetermined percentage of RAP is added. There is ample evidence that HMA which incorporates RAP performs as well as HMA without RAP. The benefits of RAP use are two-fold:
A concrete plant is an equipment that consolidates different elements to make concrete. It is also called a concrete batch mix plant or concrete batching plant.Some of these elements incorporate sand, water, aggregates, fly fiery debris, potash, and concrete.
SEARCHING FOR THE PERFECT MIX: HMA PLANT DESIGN IS A THREE-PART PROCESS. Hot mix asphalt (HMA) plants must address several issues related to facility design: 1) plant efficiency and cost effectiveness; 2) use of new materials, such as reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP); and 3) acceptable solutions to actual or perceived environmental damage due to plant operation.
HMA is produced in a plant that proportions, blends, and heats aggregate and asphalt to produce an HMA that conforming to JMF requirements. There are two basic types of HMA plants commonly in use today: the batch plant, and the drum mix plant.

About 85 percent of plants being manufactured today are of the counterflow drum mix ...
An HMA plant can be constructed as a permanent plant, a skid-mounted (easily relocated) plant, or a portable plant. All plants can have RAP processing capabilities. Virtually all plants being manufactured today have RAP processing capability. Batch Mix Plants - Figure 11.1-1 shows the batch mix HMA production process. Raw aggregate normally is

A certain percentage of fine aggregate (less than 74 micrometers [μm] in physical diameter) is required for the production of good quality HMA. Hot mix asphalt paving materials can be manufactured by: batch mix plants, continuous mix (mix outside dryer drum) plants, parallel flow drum mix plants, and; counterflow drum mix plants.

Each type of plant can produce the same types of HMA and neither type of plant should impart any significant plant-specific HMA characteristics. The choice of a batch or drum mix plant depends upon business factors such as purchase price, operating costs, production requirements and the need for flexibility in local markets; both can produce ...
Section 5: Plant Operations HMA production is the first step in construction of HMA pavement layers. The basic purpose of an HMA plant is to properly proportion, blend, and heat aggregate, additives, and asphalt to produce an HMA that meets the requirements of the job mix formula (JMF) (Roberts et al., 1996).
As transportation needs have changed over time, our road building and manufacturing abilities have adapted, and now over 94 percent of all roadways in the United States are paved with hot mix asphalt (HMA). Since good inputs will yield good outputs at the hot mix plant, today it is more essential than ever to improve your plant.

Batch Asphalt Plants literally make Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) one batch at a time. They have the advantage of being able to taylor each truckload of HMA to exact specifications, whereas a drum asphalt plant generally produces high volumes of the same recipe. Aggregate, RAP and asphalt cement are mixed in a pug mill mixer rather than a drum.

There are two principal process used to produce Hot-Mix asphalt: Batch mixer and Drum Mixer process (US EPA, 2004). For Drum Mixer process, there are two different types, counter flow or parallel flow. For each process, the range of variables to control is different and the emissions are different too. Fig. 1 shows a HMA plant studied. It is a ...
The proportioning system for batch and continuous mix plants differs greatly. Continuous mixing facilities utilize a mass flow, Coriolis effect meter to introduce the liquid anti-strip into the asphalt binder. Batch plants use a weigh pot to measure the amount of liquid anti-strip needed for each batch of asphalt concrete.
HMA is the traditional process for constructing asphalt pavements. HMA is manufactured in a central mixing facility (typically called a hot mix plant) and consists of high quality aggregate and asphalt cement. The two are heated and mixed while hot to completely coat the aggregate with asphalt cement.
