Astec Voyager™ 140 Portable Compact Asphalt Plant
The Voyager™ 140 portable, compact asphalt plant from Astec Inc., Chattanooga, is built around a Double Barrel® drum featuring Astec v-fights for densifying the veil of material across the dryer. Astec’s Mike Varner explained this allows the lowest practical stack temperature, which results in optimal heat transfer and reduced fuel use. The drum and baghouse of this portable plant are on the same load, giving the mix producer an agile system that produces 140 metric tonnes per hour, or 154 short tons at 3 percent moisture. It’s designed to allow up to 50 percent reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) content and to accept the new, compact Versa Jet™ burner as one of its burner options.
While available before CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020, the Voyager 140 was rolled out during the show.
