Voyager™ 140 Portable Asphalt Plants
140 MTPH Portable Asphalt Plant
The Astec Voyager 140 is based upon Astec’s proven Double Barrel® drum mixer. With production capacity of 140 tonnes/hr and RAP mixing capability of 50%, the Voyager 140 sets the standard for portability, production, and sustainability.
Small plant footprint, big plant features. The Astec Voyager 140 plant delivers full-size plant features in a compact highly-portable configuration. Each component is designed to maximize mix quality while also maintaining portability and set-up ease.
Features & Benefits
- Compact and highly portable
- Produces mix with up to 50% RAP content
- Double Barrel drum features Astec v-fights
- V-flights provide greater uniformity of the aggregate veil during drying, which results in better heat transfer, a reduction of fuel use and increased productivity
- Pulse Jet Baghouse with Aramid bags ensures that the Voyager 140 effectively minimizes environmental impact
- Modular design provides added flexibility
1.) Safety Handrails and Ladders
Safety handrails and ladder come pre-installed for added safety and ease of access. ladders and handrails fold down for transport mode.
2.) Mix Transfer and Truck Loading
From the standard, manually-erected drag conveyor and batcher to the optional self-erect drag and silo, the Voyager 140 is ready to get mix to the road. Each component is designed to maximize mix quality by eliminating the potential for mix segregation.
3.) Recycle Inlet
Recycle inlet allows for the introduction of up to 50% RAP when utilizing optional recycle bins. A divert chute is included to simplify calibration and allow for quick and easy bin clearing.
4.) Pulse Jet Baghouse
35,800 m3/hr (21,125 CFM) Pulse Jet baghouse with 260 Aramid bags collect fines and ensure that the Voyager 140 effectively minimizes environmental impact. The compact design maximizes portability.
5.) Primary Collector
Coarse fines are separated from fine particulates using an inertial separator. The fine particulates pass through the separator and are collected in the baghouse to be returned to the mix or diverted with optional equipment. (not shown in illustration)
6.) Inspection Door
Generously-sized access doors are provided at critical locations to minimize maintenance and inspection time.

7.) Dust Return System
The course fines separated at the primary collector are returned to the mix through the dust return system. Common, easily-accessible, screw conveyor drives minimize critical spare parts inventory. The fixed screw conveyors enable fast set-up times.
8.) Double Barrel® Drum
The Voyager 140 uses the proven technology of a Double Barrel drum mixer to continuously produce up to 140 tonnes/hr (154tph). Astec’s proven v-flights come standard and provide uniformity of the aggregate veil for effective and efficient heat transfer. Produce mix with up to 50% RAP with optional RAP bins.
9.) Air Ride Suspension
Adjustable air-ride suspension improves travel over unimproved roads and takes the Voyager 140 from travel mode to operation quickly – minimizing expensive set-up time.
10.) Weigh System
The Voyager 140 features adjustable gates, available weighing feeders, gravity take-up, weigh scale, and proven accessible drive systems for accurate aggregate metering.
Big burner features and performance at just the right size. Astec offers the most technologically advanced burners in the industry.
Whisper Jet® Burner
The Astec Whisper Jet burner delivers unmatched reliability and hassle-free maintenance. The Whisper Jet burner cleanly and effectively burns oil, natural gas, or propane.
The compact flame shape eliminates drum overheating and does not require complicated flame shape adjustments for combustion efficiency.
The heavy-duty main fan damper is constructed to provide years of trouble-free operation.
A patented nozzle design promotes more rapid mixing and combustion.
Phoenix® Talon II™ Burner
The Astec Phoenix Talon II utilizes the latest burner technology to deliver very low emissions combined with the electrical energy efficiency and quiet operation due to its variable frequency drive (VFD) blower.
A robust build and simple design makes the Astec Fury burner a great cost-effective choice. Compared to traditional open-fired burners, the total-air/open-fired hybrid design on the Fury burner achieves better emissions by putting 50% more combustion air through the burner.
