The remarkably efficient design of the Astec M-Pack simplifies electrical hookup. The self-contained powerhouse includes all the necessary electrical components to run the facility.
The Control Centers
All Astec control centers feature welded steel frames and are built to endure the harsh environment of an asphalt plant. The control centers come fully equipped and are climate controlled. Windows are tinted and slanted, optimizing the operator’s view of the facility. Astec control centers are designed to meet state requirements for permitting.
The Command style control center is available in four sizes: 27 feet, 31 feet, 35 feet, 40 feet. The split level design includes an elevated control room that provides a panoramic view of the facility. Each control center also features a rubber tile floor for operator comfort.
PMII controls and monitors proportional control of aggregate feeders and the blending of asphalt, recycle, shingles, and additives. PMII can also be custom configured to work the optional WM2000. Upgrade to the TCII, the most powerful PC-based system ever designed to control hot mix asphalt facilities. With these centralized controls you will have instant and accurate control of all facility operations. No other system provides you with more flexibility and expansion options.
The Power House
The Astec M-Pack plant keeps all the sensitive switch gear and the Variable Frequency Drives (VFD) dust free and out of the elements in an air conditioned power house. Two standard sizes are available: 20 feet and 40 feet.
