Astec COLD FEED SYSTEMS ARE built
FOR DEMANDING EVIRONMENTS.
For any style plant, Astec manufactures a durable, long lasting cold feed system loaded with innovative labor-saving features.
Defend Against Impact And Abrasion
We construct our cold feed bins of 1/4 inch (.635 cm) thick steel plate reinforced with stiffeners. Top edges of the bins are formed into channels for added strength.
Optional high-density polyurethane liners can be installed inside the bins for added wear protection. Liners also significantly reduce the coefficient of friction between bin walls and material, producing ultrasmooth material flow.
Assure Even Material Flow
Steep walls and self-relieving bottom openings on Astec bins promote smooth flow and prevent bridging of materials. Heavy-duty bar grizzlies are available as an option. They are installed on top of the bins to scalp off oversized material and debris.
We also offer optional dancing plate bin vibrators, which keep damp or caked-up materials from sticking to bin walls. The vibrator is installed on a hinged plate inside the bin to avoid shaking the entire bin.
