The M-Pack foundations are heavy-duty. They provide plenty of load-bearing surface to support the facility components. The cold feed unit, recycle bins, drum mixer and baghouse have thick structural tubes under each module leg. Steel skid foundations are used under the exhaust stack end of the baghouse. The scalping screen is supported by skid-type foundations. If you ever have to move to another site, most loads fit on lowboy type trailers, and the built-in foundations
go with them.
Control CenterA built-in ticket window is standard. Provides an excellent facility control environment and surveillance capabilities with convenience and comfort.
PMIII is the next generation of hot mix asphalt controls. Facility operation has never been easier, faster or more accurate than with this new, ‘hard-PLC’ based control.

Silo support structures are designed to meet the site specific design criteria at your location based on the current building codes in your area. Our structural engineering staff will design your foundations based on soil conditions at your site.
