Cold Feed Systems
Stands up to a Tough Environment
Astec cold feed and recycle units are built to give many years of service in demanding environments. All parts of the bins, from the bins themselves to the steel bulkheads and foundations, are fabricated to perform and stand up to front-end loaders and abrasive materials year after year.
Standard features - such as the protected walkway access at the backside of the belt feeders, steeper bins with better flow and cable trays - give you even more value for your money. We build every piece of our asphalt plants, including our bins, to be the most durable, productive and user-friendly you will find.
Features & Benefits

Portable Cold Feed Systems
The portable cold feed system can be set up without cranes in less than an hour, which saves considerable time and money. No concrete or asphalt foundations are required, only compacted soil able to bear 2,500 pounds per square foot (12,206 kg per m2). Comes with built-in bulkhead and wing walls.
Relocatable Cold Feed Systems
The Astec relocatable cold feed system is set in place on A paved site that has at least 2,500 pounds per square foot (12,206 kg per m2) soil bearing pressure. It is supported by its heavy-duty steel plate foundations. Modular construction eliminates on-site fabrication. Bulkheads and hinged wing walls are safer and eliminate expensive concrete bulkheads.
Stationary Cold Feed Systems
Astec stationary cold feed systems come in A range of capacities to suit any production requirement. Stationary systems also offer lots of flexibility for future add-ons or alterations. Stationary cold feed bins are anchored to concrete foundations.
