Asphalt plant breaks down into five truckloads

Designed for portability, the new Terex E225P asphalt plant can put out 225 metric tons per hour. It takes just five truckloads to move the unit, which breaks down into the counter-flow drum mixer, baghouse, self-erect silo, four cold feed bins with scalping screen and a liquid AC tank/control house/fuel tank. The drum is capable of making a variety of mix designs including stone matrix asphalts and superpave. A SJ-360 Hauck burner delivers 75 million BTUs of energy for efficient aggregate heating. The base plant includes the necessary electronic connections to accept recycled asphalt and its counter flow technology allows the E225P drum to run higher percentages of RAP than parallel-flow designs while still meeting environmental regulations.
