Asphalt Dryer Drum

Asphalt dryer drum is one of the most important component of asphalt plant drying and heating system. The main purpose is to remove the moisture from the cold aggregate and heat them, which can ensure bonding with the asphalt. As we all know, the moisture of cold aggregate should be controlled accurately. Otherwise, it may influence the finished product – asphalt mixture. Therefore, it is essential to choose a best asphalt drum to improve working efficiency in the beginning of the whole process. Here is an elaborate introduction about asphalt drum dryer for sale. Hope it can help you a lot.

Working Principle of Asphalt Drum Mixer for Sale

The driving device rotates the inclined asphalt dryer drum. And the blades of different sections and different shapes in the inner side of drum scrape the aggregate and form a curtain. Then they fall and go forward at different positions so that the aggregate and the hot air flow are fully heat exchanged. In this way can the aggregate heat evenly.

After heating, the aggregate passes through the curtain area and enters the radiation area. The specially designed lifting board is attached to the inner side of the drum and rotates with the drum to avoid the disordered flow affecting the shape of the flame. At the same time, the radiant energy is used to maintain the aggregate temperature. In this way, the loss of incomplete combustion caused by the sticking of the fuel by the aggregate can be reduced.

In order to dry the cold aggregate and heat it to the required temperature (10~20 °C higher than the asphalt heating temperature, generally 150~180 °C, the asphalt type and label are different, so as heating temperature). In order to achieve this, a multi-stage lifting blade (lifting plate) is designed on the inner side of the asphalt dryer drum.

Some Precautions During The Trial Run of The Asphalt Drum Mixers After Installation

1. Clean the internal debris such as drying drum, furnace and pulverized coal machine. Check whether the inside lifting blades of the drying drum is fastened, and tear off the outer packaging of the drying drum;

2. Check whether the wiring of the power distribution cabinet is firm, and whether the line is in accordance with the drawings;

3. Roller ring and roller are prohibited from buttering;

4. Observe that the gap between the two gear wheels and the drying drum is moderate;

5. Remove the universal joints; debug the motor one by one, arrange four people to observe the four motors separately; test the reverse rotation of the single machine; observe whether the positive and negative reversals are correct; whether the current is normal, and then install the universal joints after each motor is debugged normally.

6. The overall adjustment: drying drum rotate, observe whether the body is running smoothly, whether the vibration condition is normal;

7. The drum is a heating element, so do not touch it when the equipment is running.
