Lintec & Linnhoff has used Excon India 2022 to announce its new Linnhoff DRX DurableMix asphalt plant series. The company also launched its locally manufactured Linnhoff TSD1500 MobileMix asphalt plant. These units will be built by its newly appointed licensed manufacturing partner, Gainwell Engineering Private Limited.
There will be two models in the new DRX DurableMix series: the DRX1500DS, with a maximum capacity output of 120 t/hr; and the DRX2000DS, with a maximum capacity output of 160 t/hr. Both plants offer productive operation with a batch cycle time of between 45 and 55 seconds and share a host of trademark features familiar to Linnhoff customers.
Foremost of these is the double screen drum, which combines the drying and screening of aggregates in a single drum to deliver the highest levels of operating efficiency. The inclusion of the double screen drum eliminates the need for a hot elevator or vibrating screens, which translates to lower operating costs and reduced maintenance requirements for Linnhoff customers.
Environmental credentials are boosted, thanks to a pollution control unit that includes an ambient-air cleaning system to purify exhaust gas and filter dust. This means clean air is released into the atmosphere. Precision and quality of the asphalt mix is also assured, thanks to a design that includes a separate weighing system with load cells for aggregates, filler and bitumen. Plus, customers achieve reliability through Linnhoff’s long-standing business model that combines German engineering with local manufacturing using the highest quality materials and components.
Furthermore, Lintec & Linnhoff has launched its locally-built TSD1500 MobileMix plant from the Linnhoff brand. The company said these units appeal to customers in India due to their high mobility attributed to four fully integrated main mobile modules with built-in chassis.
The TSD1500 features a maximum capacity of 120 t/hr and is designed to conform to international land transportation requirements. Only prime movers are required for quick mobilisation and demobilisation. By offering important advantages in terms of enhanced mobility, the TSD1500 is ideal for use in remote locations or short-term projects.
All units come equipped with a hydraulic power pack self-jacking system, which avoids the need for high-capacity cranes during installation and dismantling. As with the new DRX models, they also include double-screen drum technology for reduced fuel consumption and maintenance.
