Quick setup and tough construction make the Astec relocatable plant an excellent value. An M-Pack plant gives you the capacity and size of a permanent facility with low setup costs. That’s one big advantage.
Up And Running In Six Weeks
You can set up an M-Pack plant on a prepared site in about six weeks, at less than half the cost of erecting a stationary plant of comparable size. Each Astec M-Pack plant ships in complete, ready to set up loads when it leaves the manufacturing facility.
Astec equipment costs less to run and maintain than other plants because we use substantial components that stand up to heavy use. That is also the reason for Astec's consistently high resale value. Even for plants that are 10 to 15 years old average residual value is 68% of your original investment. Plus, Astec sets up every facility before shipping to ensure setup ease at your site.
Get A Handle On Setup Costs
For complete setup cost control, Astec can erect your new plant for you. You will know up front what all costs will be and won't have to concern yourself with estimates from electricians, welders, fitters, etc.
Choice Of Tonnage Capacities
M-Pack plants come in a range of capacities from 200 to 600 tons per hour. Choose the production capacity you need and we will help you design, construct, and start up your new M-Pack plant.
Direct Drive Cold Feed Motors
Astec uses variable frequency direct drive motors on the cold feed system. You will have less maintenance to worry about since a gear box runs the belt feed drive without the need for more belts or sheaves.
Optional - Ceramic Silo Liners
Ceramic liners are available for the cone, spool and batcher. Ceramic protects vulnerable parts of the silo against excessive wear from the abrasive asphalt mix.
