The bright, clean appearance of the drum will enhance the physical environment of your plant
ELIMINATION OF EXCESSIVE HEAT:
No more need for heat shields over motors. Allows gearboxes and lubrication system to run cooler and provides safety to personnel.
Access to bolt-thru flights is provided. In addition, the entire system can be removed and reinstalled if necessary.
The average asphalt plant will realize a 100% return on investment in less than one year of operation.
REDUCED NOISE LEVELS:
Substantially decreses the sound emitted from the drum by 6 decibels. This is especially important in noise sensitive areas.
REDUCTION OF MAINTENANCE COSTS:
There will be less temperature variation of your drum to cause thermal shock. This results in less remedial welding at those chronic weld crack locations. External painting and associated remedial work for surface oxidation of the dryer drum will be eliminated.
With heat retained in the drum, the burner automatically steps down while maintaining more uniform temperatures.
Initial warm up period will be cut approximately in half.
Recaptured heat allows for increased production providing the system has an adequate air supply.
MORE UNIFORM HEATING:
Evenly spread temperatures replace concentrated "hot spots" resulting in more efficient heat transfer to material.
With the internal temperature of the dryer drum retained between cycles, restart operating temperatures are almost instant.
REDUCES EXHASUT POLLUTION:
Reduced flame means reduced exhaust. This will help meet state and federal pollutant standards.
