Am­mann In­tro­duces Apollo ValueTec As­phalt Plants


Am­mann’s lat­est ValueTec AsphaltMix­ing 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.” The batch 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 cost­sav­ing 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 five­bin 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 has­sle­free ma­te­rial de­liv­ery. A sim­ple, ef­fec­tive cal­i­bra­tion sys­tem also pro­vides es­sen­tial sup­port. “These 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 fu­tur­eready 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.

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 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.
