Use of Baghouse Fines, Hot Mix Plant in Asphaltic Concrete

Abstract

This study is done to determine the effects of "Baghouse Fines" in the asphaltic concrete mixes. The analysis includes carrying out Marshall Tests on asphaltic mixes having various filler/baghouse fines ratios. Sieve analysis and hydrometer analysis were used to produce gradations for aggregate mixtures with baghouse fines. Chemical properties of baghouse fines were determined using X-ray fluorescence machine. The results of the study indicate that indicate that baghouse fines can greatly affect the properties of the design mix, such as the stability values, the flow values and the optimum asphalt content. The chemical properties of baghouse fines indicate the absence of any harmful heavy metal in the baghouse fines. It is anticipated that the results of this study will be of great help in the improvement of local mix properties.
