The plant has the capability to produce asphalt with multiple additives, which are mixed in a separate drum to the drying drum. It is capable of producing hot-mix, warm-mix, cold-mix and recycled asphalt material.
The plant’s environmentally focused counter-flow drum; yields quality mix without wastage and emits a lower exhaust temperature.
The system reduces asphalt vapour in the main air stream, which helps the operation meet stringent national environmental standards on emission control. This is achieved by the use of a bag house, which contains all of the emissions. It is now complete with a testing laboratory for quality control, research and development and product design.
The plant is currently supplying private contractors, local councils, shires and road authorities in the area.
