Kaushik Cesan - Asphalt Batch Mix Plants



Gujarat-based road construction equipment manufacturer, Kaushik Engineering Works, which manufactures asphalt batch mix plants under the joint venture technical collaboration with Cesan of Turkey, will be expanding its plant offerings. Informs Mr. Saumil Shah, Director, Kaushik Engineering Works, “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 end of 2018. Along with producing higher capacity plants, the facility will be able to produce three plants per month as compared to one 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 absolutely operator friendly. 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 dismantle 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 Mr. shah, the plants work safely at sites as they have a series of stringent production checks. Erection and commissioning is undertaken between two to three weeks jointly by Kaushik and Cesan's engineers. This fully ensures safety of the plants. Kaushik has delivered more than 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 for the RAP asphalt batch mix plants, Mr. Shah says, “Our existing plants are capable of taking 15-20% of rap materials. We have refrained from offering fully RAP-enabled 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 Four successful installations of Asphalt Batch Mix Plants with RAP system in India.
