Astec Inc. recently announced its entry into the aggregate/asphalt dryer burner retrofit market. Previously, Astec burners were only available on Astec aggregate/asphalt dryers. Astec launched its retrofit offerings with the new Phoenix Phantom at Teichert in Tracy, Calif., and the new Phoenix Coal at United Co. in Grand Junction, Colo. With the addition of these two burners, Astec now offers four burner lines, including the Whisper Jet and the Phoenix Talon.
Astec burners offer the latest in reliable burner technology combined with complete one-source responsibility. With new retrofit capabilities, Astec is able to offer everything from a simple burner replacement to a complete installed system. Astec's burner group engineer the burners to the specifications of each customer and manufacturers each in a new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.
Since entering the burner business in 2003, Astec has shipped over 200 burners for hot-mix asphalt facilities.
