TBA 3000 doubles effectiveness
A brand-new TBA 3000 was installed to meet the many requirements specified by internationally renowned experts and to produce the special asphaltic mixtures for the Sochi Autodrom reliably and with top quality. The asphalt mixing plant in Sochi is state of the art in all respects. It replaces the previous MBA 2000 plant and offers higher mixing capacities and an option for using reclaimed asphalt. Specifically, the mixing capacity increased from 160 t/h to 240 t/h, and the screen for separating the aggregates is now a 6-fold version instead of the previous 4-fold model. This sets up Tekhalyans ready for the future also beyond the demands of the Formula 1, as many public tenders are based on the new GOST regulations, which require more specialised recipes for motorways.
Multi-variable feed for 40% recycling content
One special aspect of new Benninghoven plants is the consistent development of future-oriented solutions for environmental protection. The option for adding recycling materials ensures ecological, sustainable and efficient use of the TBA 3000. The cold material is added through the multi-variable feed, a patented Benninghoven technology. When the TBA 3000 is used in “normal” road construction, new raw materials can be produced from construction waste. This saves money and protects resources. If Tekhalyans wants to further increase the recycling content, the plant can be retrofitted easily. With the recycling drum with hot-gas generator as the hot feed system, the plant can even process as much as 80% recycling content.
