Astec Industries Inc. Offers NTEP-Certified Portable Self-Effecting Surge Silo
The closed-top NTEP certified portable self-erecting surge silo (SESS) from Astec Industries Inc., Chattanooga, is designed for convenience, speed and reliability. With its self-erecting mechanism, the surge silo eliminates the need for extensive construction and labor-intensive setup, enabling asphalt manufacturers to quickly establish a highly functional and adaptable storage solution. NTEP certification for the weighing mechanisms ensures accurate ticketing at loadout. An optional oil-sealed gate and enclosed silo top equipped with a grease seal prevent oxygen penetration allowing longer-term storage.
The oil-seal gate and top grease-seal in conjunction with premium insulation provides industry-leading storage in a portable silo. The silo and drag share a common chassis and are erected together using hydraulic cylinders. A steeper cone angle provides first-in/first-out material rotation to minimize mix segregation.
