Astec`s SixPack Asphalt Plant (3D Animation) Video

The Astec, Inc. SixPack Asphalt plant is a complete set of highly portable loads designed for fast and crane-less setup. Designed around the highly acclaimed Astec Double Barrel drum dryer/mixer (DB) and the Astec Self-Erecting Bin (SEB), the plant can produce up to 400 tons of warm mix asphalt per hour (363 metric TPH) with up to 50% reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP).

The typical package includes the DB, SEB, cold feed bins, RAP feed bins, incline conveyors, additive silo, power/motor control house, and optional AC storage tank.

The typical plant can be setup and ready for mix in less than 3 days.
