Astec Launches New Burner Designed for Retrofit Customers
BY AsphaltPro Staff
While almost any Astec burner can be configured for a retrofit application, Astec recently launched a new burner designed to offer several advantages for retrofit customers. When creating the new Astec Versa Jet™ burner, Astec engineers reimagined the asphalt plant burner to create a new system that takes an evolutionary leap forward.
According to the manufacturer, advantages the Versa Jet burner delivers for retrofit applications include: a versatile platform that has the capacity to fire at a range of rates and can be easily configured to meet production needs, the option to reuse an existing fuel train, compatibility with virtually all drum designs without complicated drum modifications, the ability to work with existing controls, and a unique platform that permits quick setup.
The versatility of the Versa Jet burner means it can also be easily relocated to a different plant if the need arises. In addition, the Versa Jet burner uses less energy than other comparable burners, according to the manufacturer.
