Kaushik ramp­ing up man­u­fac­tur­ing ca­pac­ity for pro­duc­ing higher ca­pac­ity plants


Gu­jarat-based road con­struc­tion equip­ment man­u­fac­turer, Kaushik En­gi­neer­ing Works, which man­u­fac­tures as­phalt batch mix plants un­der a joint ven­ture tech­ni­cal col­lab­o­ra­tion with Ce­san of Turkey, is ex­pand­ing its plant

“Based on the re­quire­ments of In­dian road con­trac­tors, we pro­duce plants be­tween 120-160 TPH. How­ever, to take on the grow­ing de­mand for big­ger ca­pac­ity plants from con­trac­tors in­volved in big­ger projects, we are in the process of ramp­ing up our man­u­fac­tur­ing ca­pac­ity in Ahmed­abad to pro­duce plants upto 300 TPH. In the ex­ist­ing and the up­com­ing fa­cil­ity at Sanand, we will pro­duce plants be­tween 240-300tph by late 2018. Along with pro­duc­ing higher ca­pac­ity plants, the fa­cil­ity will be able to pro­duce three plants per month as com­pared to two units at present.”

He adds, “The plants, built on Euro­pean stan­dards and en­gi­neer­ing spec­i­fi­ca­tions, are highly fuel-ef­fi­cient. This is be­cause the burner and the bag house are com­pletely syn­chro­nized. This also min­i­mizes en­ergy wastage and makes them very op­er­a­tor­friendly. The spe­cial de­signed Ce­san burn­ers make the plant fuel-ef­fi­cient by at least 4.5 litres/ton as com­pared to 5.5 litres/ton in other plants. Fur­ther, the mod­u­lar de­sign plants are eas­ier to in­stall and can be dis­man­tled within two to three days. The pro­gramme logic-con­trolled plants en­able the op­er­a­tors to op­ti­mize their oper­a­tion. Re­li­a­bil­ity is en­sured by the crit­i­cal com­po­nents that are sourced from re­puted man­u­fac­tur­ers, es­pe­cially the gears, which are of Turk­ish ori­gin. The fab­ri­cated grilled ma­te­rial made at our plant is based on Ce­san’s Euro­pean stan­dards for dura­bil­ity & safety. The fac­tory fit­ted plants en­sure easy erec­tion, dis­man­tling, and trans­porta­tion.”

Ac­cord­ing to Shah, the plants work safely at sites as they have strin­gent pro­duc­tion checks. Erec­tion and com­mis­sion­ing are un­der­taken be­tween two to three weeks jointly by Kaushik and Ce­san’s en­gi­neers. This en­sures safety of the plants. Kaushik has de­liv­ered 40 plants since its tie-up with Ce­san in 2014. “We have also started ex­port­ing Kaushik Ce­san As­phalt Batch Mix Plants,” he adds.

Look­ing for­ward to the RAP as­phalt batch mix plants, Shah says, “Our plants are ca­pa­ble of tak­ing 15-20% of RAP ma­te­ri­als. We have re­frained from of­fer­ing fully RAPen­abled plants due to their higher ini­tial costs. We will in­crease the per­cent­age of our plants in stages to take on RAP ma­te­ri­als.” So far, Kaushik Ce­san has two suc­cess­ful in­stal­la­tions of As­phalt Batch Mix Plants with RAP sys­tem in In­dia.
