Asphalt plant repair and replacement components
ABOUT US
  Injecting new life and performance into existing equipment

Much of the fundamentals of material handling, storing mix, heating/drying and proportioning do not change that dramatically from one major design to another. The secret is often in the details and Hotmix Parts can help evaluate your operation and determine if you could retain a great deal of your existing equipment or must make significant modifications. We keep maximum performance and cost savings in mind. Here are some examples. Contact us to discuss your needs today.

Electronic control change out in order to run RAP, RAS or other additive ingredients. Many old control systems did very basic blending, matching and belt scale reading to the asphalt pump. Now that there are other critical inputs such as RAP, RAS, hydrated lime or other ingredients, many more points need to be correctly proportioned in order to meter and make the final end result mix specification. Hotmix Parts can supply both mechanical equipment as well as all the electronic controls and readouts, interlocks, alarm systems in order to yield an upgrade to a plant and bring it to 21st Century standards.

Reflighting of dryer/drums. If an existing dryer or drum is over 8 to 10 years old, there's a very good chance that not only is the internal flighting subject to wear, but the technology has changed and improved so much. With the newest technology, we should be able to test, evaluate and compute how differing materials will pass through the unit and whether they need to be introduced rapidly by spiral inputs, blended, or how to promote the best conductive heat transfer or have availing areas to extract the maximum BTUs out of the combustion that's taking place in the process. The engineers and technicians at Hotmix Parts & Service have upgraded hundreds of dryers and other components over the years and they have both the art and science of it well-perfected.

Hot oil heating transfer. As hotmix producers have found the need for more grades of A.C. and an expanded storage capacity, their requirements for plant heating have been put to the test. Specific hot oil heat exchangers can be designed to take care of additional zones of heating or the unit can be upsized to handle all heating requirements on the plant. This can often be done even on an emergency basis and changed out over a long weekend.
