Emergency response - Asphalt plant equipment
ABOUT US
  Emergency Responder

At certain times of the year, Hotmix Parts & Service expedites and ships over 70% of its orders on an emergency basis. With our centralized factories and in-house machine shop, we get urgent items completed immediately. The UPS Next Day Air Hub is located minutes from us - and many items delivered to UPS by 9 PM can be delivered to the user by the next morning. Here are a few examples of our advanced emergency capabilities. Contact us to discuss your needs today.

Gear reducer change out to standard models. Many of the old line manufacturers of asphalt plants try to be clever in their designs by having the manufacturer make an odd gear box or ratio. In addition, some today even remove the serial number tag and just put a name tag of the manufacturer. You do not have to worry about this when working with Hotmix Parts & Service, because our specialists can look at the motor horsepower, the duty cycle and the load on the equipment to come up with emergency replacement gear reducers to get the plant back up and running. We will provide a much more standardized gear box that does not put the producer at the mercy of a very high priced original equipment manufacturer.

Replacement rotary airlocks. There is such a variety of flow rates and materials depending on the plant capacity and the dust loading in the equipment. However, Hotmix Parts & Service stocks a number of sizes of airlocks and can often easily adapt one to your needs with minimal change out time and improved performance. Many of these airlocks have been upgraded with longer lasting internals to avoid these in-season emergencies.

Pump and other component failures. Many operations have critical pumps all around the asphalt plant but do not have a plan in case of failure. Some pumps run for years with minimal maintenance, so an emergency breakdown can happen withoutmuch notice. Hotmix Parts & Service stocks all types of pumps including the critical metering systems for drum mix plants, Mass-Flo meters and many other components that can help get the operation back up and running fast.

Lightning responses. Every year, we see lightning strikes that take out load cells and other plant components, even affecting major segments of a plant process control. There are hundreds of continuous process controls on older plants that have no back up or support from the original manufacturer or the manufacturer is no longer in business. To prepare for this, we can perform very rapid change outs on all types of controls and subcomponents such as the burner control, Partlow elements, speed switches and much more.
