Plant from Asphalt Drum Mixers can incorporate up to 30 percent recycled material.
Hoban Equipment Ltd., a British Columbia, Canada, construction company has purchased a portable asphalt plant that Hoban says will help it expand its asphalt paving offerings in Canada.
The asphalt plant is a model EX8842 from Asphalt Drum Mixers Inc. (ADM), Huntertown, Ind., and was first erected near Regina, Saskatchewan, to repave a 17-kilometer stretch of the Trans-Canada Highway. Hoban says it selected the model due to its ease of use and productivity.
The EX8842 produces up to 250 tons of asphalt per hour. It includes a counterflow mixing drum, baghouse, cold feed bins, self-erecting storage silo, drag conveyor, asphalt cement tanks, mineral filler silo and recycle bins. The system is designed for fuel efficiency and low emissions. The plant also features the ability to incorporate up to 30 percent recycled material in its asphalt mixes.
To erect the new plant, a service team from Asphalt Drum Mixers traveled to Saskatchewan to oversee the project. “The whole setup process went well, thanks to the help of the Asphalt Drum Mixers crew,” says Mike Tiffin, project manager for Hoban Equipment. “And, because the new plant is so easy to use, we can train new plant operators in no time at all.”
