“When you invest in an asphalt mixing plant that has to run for several decades, you have to look at all the details,” says Luigino Valle, mixing plant manager and owner of Bitux. “Several suppliers offer high system performance. It was therefore particularly interesting for me and my team how well the plant control works and how comfortable maintenance is. The more intelligent these solutions are, the earlier we can go home at the end of the day.” One of the crucial factors for Valle was therefore the high technical level of the BENNINGHOVEN plant with its well thought-out ergonomics, work and maintenance concept.
“The high demands BENNINGHOVEN places on its technology during development and production are evident in every single component. We are convinced that the quality ‘made in Germany’ will pay off for us in the medium and long term,” says Valle, whose company also wants to use this investment to distinguish itself from the competition.
“Maintenance was very important for us, because we are planning to work with this equipment for many decades.”

As Italian legislation currently only allows 30 % used asphalt, however, the multivariable feed integrated into the mixing tower for virgin mineral is sufficient for now. The cold feed system allows addition rates up to 40 %. “With the recycling recipe generator and the many feed options, for example for adhesive and granulate, we can produce any type of asphaltic mixture flexibly and quickly – and change between recipes in a flash,” continues Valle.
Asphalt mixing plant type BA 5000: The leading BENNINGHOVEN hot feed system, consisting of a recycling drum with hot-gas generator, can be retrofitted – for 90 + X % recycling content. A multi-variable feed for up to 40 % recycling content and the three recycling feed units are already fitted.
Maximum performance and highest investment security– those were two important criteria which Bitux had for its new asphalt mixing plant. The BENNINGHOVEN plant also impressed with its user-friendly technology – and high quality “made in Germany”.
