Asphalt MixingA thermal mixing process is required to turn aggregates and liquid AC into an asphalt pavement mix for road construction. This makes an asphalt mixing plant necessary for road construction. The complete line of Astec asphalt mixing plants, and its range of capacities and features, gives you the choices and flexibility to create your optimum solution.Learn More
Recycled Asphalt PavementThe asphalt pavement industry has a long history of incorporating reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) into new asphalt pavement mix. In fact, Asphalt is America’s most recycled material making the asphalt industry is a leader in the use of recycled materials. Astec has a long history of building world-class tools to allow contractors and producers to collect and utilize this very valuable product.Learn More
Highway PavingLearn More
Highway class paving requires pavers that are strong, powerful, and productive. Highway class paving can range from one lane to multi-lane projects. These applications require pavers with large hoppers, wide paving widths, and a broad scope of screed compatibility.
Commercial PavingLearn More
Commercial paving applications need machinery that can scale down the highway paver size without scaling down the power, functionality, performance, or efficacy. These pavers are able to pave hard-to-reach areas such as parking lots, traffic circles, and roundabouts to yield a quality mat without sacrificing productivity.
Residential PavingResidential paving focuses on paving driveways, parking lots, cart paths, bike paths, footpaths, and other smaller areas. These smaller spaces are traveled via vehicle, bicycles, and foot daily, and examined at close range. Therefore, they demand attention to detail and focus. While these sites are smaller in scale than highway class or commercial class jobs, they still require asphalt paving machinery that can produce a quality mat with efficiency and productivity.Learn More
COUNTER FLOW DRYER DRUM
The powerful, well-balanced, high-efficiency drum is insulated and features Astec v-flights to enhance heat transfer into the aggregate. A single chassis supports the drying drum. The four-wheeled dryer drum drive is friction driven.
TWIN SHAFT PUGMILL
Mixing takes place in a 1800 kg mixer with synchronized double shafts. Specially-alloyed cast iron components are highly resistant to abrasion. Specially-designed tips and shanks ensure a homogeneous mix within a short span of time. A full-length discharge gate driven by an electro-pneumatic jack allows fast and complete emptying of the mixer.
Whisper Jet Burner
The Astec Whisper Jet total-air burner uses unique patented technology to burn cleanly and efficiently. A proven Astec design ensures best-in-class efficiency and performance. Pre-testing and wiring guarantees performance and delivery. Available in a variety of fuel firing combinations.
BG SERIES BAGHOUSE
The modular reverse pulse baghouse is fitted directly over the dryer to eliminate ductwork. The baghouse utilizes two-stage filtration with a primary collector which separates coarse material from the gas stream and protects the bags from abrasion. The dust-laden gas then enters the baghouse where the dust collects on the heat-resistant meta aramid bags. Pneumatically operated cylinders clean bags a row at a time. Collected dust can be stored or returned to the mix.
Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP) can be incorporated into mix via the dryer drum or through the mixer unit. When added via the dryer drum, the RAP is added to the aggregate in the drum through a RAP collar. When added via the mixer, RAP is fed into a surge hopper on the batching tower.
COLD FEED BINS
Cold feed bins are designed with steep walls and a self-relieving bottom to encourage smooth material flow. Variable speed drives, and no-flow sensors ensure easy operation, Optional grizzly bars are also avilable.
Driven by two vibrating motors, the multi-deck screening unit properly sorts aggregates into five different hot aggregate bins. A maintenance-free design eliminates the need for lubrication points, while an easy grid exchange system reduces the time and effort to change screens.
MODULAR EXPANDABLE DESIGN
Extra-large hot bins add an additional 30 tonnes of aggregate capacity.
