The author describes the Goodwin-Barsby turbomatic continuous mixing plant which converts ready proportioned material into bitumen coated stone in one process without the use of the hot-stone elevator, vibrating screens or rotamixer found on a conventional autobatch. Brief details are given of the plant and the advantages, which include the use of porous aggregates, high return and low maintenance costs, are outlined and compared with disadvantages such as the high temperature required for some materials. /TRRL/
