Webster Combustion Introduces Twister™ Aggregate Burner
Webster Combustion, Winfield, Kansas, introduced the new Twister™ aggregate burner for asphalt plants. The Twister series is an open-fired burner that operates with lower motor horsepower requirements than competitive models using an integrally mounted fan to deliver both energy savings and a compact burner system, according to the manufacturer.
Twister’s single actuator manages all the controls with integrated linkage, modulating the intake air damper as well as the fuel valves. Twister series burners burn a wide range of fuels, either separately or simultaneously, including Natural, LP, and low BTU gases, all commercially available fuel oils, and qualified waste oils.
Turndowns of up to 8:1 provide a wide range of modulation capability and an optional VFD is available. To complete the package, Twister can be controlled by Webster Combustion’s ACS-100 asphalt plant burner control system, designed specifically for asphalt plants.
