Keeping your operating costs low helps you stay ahead of the competition. Maximize fuel efficiency with the Double Barrel Green™ system and multiple RAP Bins.
Cold Feed Unit, Scalping Screens And Inclined Conveyor
Cold feed bin modules ship in two or three bin sections. Modules are positioned; then the collecting conveyor, extension to the scalping screen, bin wall extensions and optional items are installed. Steel cables anchor the bins to the loader ramp. Standard bin size is 10 x 14 feet.
The inclined conveyor ships with load cell, weigh idlers, and the gravity take-up tensioner in place as a single load. It is set in place and then the scalping screen is installed.
Astec offers the most technologically advanced burners in the industry with the Phoenix burner line. The Phoenix Talon burner sets the standard for power and efficiency. The Phoenix Phantom leads the pack with the lowest available combustion and noise emissions. The Phoenix Coal utilizes multiple fuel technology to lower energy costs.
Double Barrel® Drum Mixer
Two main modules make up the relocatable Double Barrel: the foundation frame, which includes the bottom of the mixing chamber, and the inner drying drum. The foundation frame is set off, then the drying drum is positioned. The top of the mixing chamber is raised into place and connected to the lower section. Attaching the full length access door completes the mixing chamber. Last, the burner is installed, along with the virgin inlet breaching and the fines and recycle inlets.
Optional Double Barrel Green™ System
The latest innovation from Astec saves energy and eliminates smoke and emissions without compromising mix quality. The optional Double Barrel Green System uses water to produce a foamed warm mix asphalt that is odorless, smokeless and longer lasting.
