June 19, 2013. A new, modern outdoor asphalt concrete plant Bernardi MIC 100/125 that was recently launched on the premises of Uralvagonzavod has reached its projected capacity by now. The maximum productivity comes to 175 tons an hour; the plant belongs to Uralvagonzavod’s daughter enterprise UBT-Service.

The new plant was assembled during the difficult spring-time conditions, but, even so, all the jobs were completed very fast – within one month. During the start-up and commissioning, the plant operated at 130 tons an hour and produced 600 tons of asphalt within five hours. The first 400 tons of asphalt were applied to the roads located in Dzerzhinsky District of Nizhniy Tagil.

Bernardi Impianti International’s Technical Director says:

The plant’s technology’s primary advantage lies in the high dosage precision and the technically advanced drier drum burner, one of the unit’s basic nodes. It is also very energy efficient and saves a lot of fuel. In this case, we are talking about diesel fuel, but this could also be natural gas. All of the control and operation processes are fully computer-aided and automated, so the human factor is completely eliminated from the process.
