Thermal processing is the practice of changing the temperature of a material to change its state.

The heat needed for thermal processing can be applied by direct or indirect methods. Thermal processing is widely used for crude oil and natural gas processing, activating chemical processes, power generation, production of asphalt shingles and roofing materials, food and beverage production, plastics, textiles and agriculture. ASTEC has decades of experience building reliable, efficient and high-quality products for thermal processing.
