|Six Pack Components|
Component design makes setup easy.
The Double Barrel® drum mixer, cold feed, recycle, conveyor, baghouse, SEB and additive systems each move as complete loads.
The Cold Feed Unit
Pull the cold feed unit into position at the site. Lower the thick tubular steel foundations into place to support the portable cold feed unit. All belt feeders and the collecting conveyor are included. The upturned end of the collecting conveyor discharges onto a transfer conveyor feeding screen. Built-in, hinged bulkheads swing into operating position in minutes. Pre-installed, optional bin partitions and grizzlies fold down for transport.
The Virgin Inclined Conveyor/Screen
This unit comes with the transfer conveyor to screen, scalping screen and weigh bridge, all mounted on a single load. Hydraulics raise the conveyor, screen and chutes into operating position. The screen is supported by the main frame to isolate the weigh bridge from screen motion.
The Rap Bins
The portable RAP system includes everything for metering recycled material into the mix. The system includes belt feeders, the collecting conveyor with weigh bridge, the scalping screen, the inclined conveyor to the drum, and up to four bins. The foundation plates are lowered into position and the conveyor is raised hydraulically. Just like the cold feed unit, the RAP system is equipped with built-in tubular steel foundations and bulkheads.
The Double Barrel Drum Mixer® Drum Mixer
The Double Barrel load includes the burner, burner platform, inlet breaching and the duct transition to the primary collector. Plate foundations support the load. Built-in jacks make final leveling adjustments easy, so the Six Pack facility can start running sooner.
The Express Baghouse
Two low profile hoppers lower the baghouse profile and let you pass under power lines, bridges and overpasses without any trouble. The unit is supplied complete with exhaust fan, stack, and duct. The Express Baghouse is provided with an inertial dust collector. A separate cyclone is available as an option.
The SEB (Self-Erecting Surge Bin)
The SEB reduces the number of loads by combining four functions in one load: conveying, batching, weighing and storage. A thick, steel truck loading platform is part of the frame (competing bins usually need expensive concrete foundations). You also get a drag by-pass chute with a built-in bulkhead. Two large hydraulic cylinders raise the SEB into position in less than 15 minutes.
The Additive Systems
If you use lime in your mixes, or if you need a storage device for baghouse fines, the Astec portable additive silo is your mobile solution. Systems with or without slurry systems come on a self-supporting frame and include a screw conveyor and metering device. Choose an optional hydraulic system to erect the silo easily.
