Asphalt plant innovations and enhancements
ABOUT US
  Providing innovative products to save costs and downtime

Here are a few examples of the way our products are innovating the industry and are aimed to make your job easier at the asphalt plant site. Contact us to discuss your needs today.

NiteOwl Plant Alert System. No other accessory or device that can help contractors save cost and avoid downtime the way the NiteOwl can. This unique device developed by Hotmix Parts & Service, monitors multiple points on the plan and sends out alerts in case of distress. The most critical monitoring point is the hot oil circulating temperature maintaining the liquid A.C. and circulating temperature for normal morning startup operation of pumps, valves, etc. The NiteOwl provides a pre-set condition and allows the plant personnel to call and check on the temperature of the circulating oil and A.C. any time of the day, night or weekend. In a similar way, if the temperature drops below a certain setpoint, the NiteOwl unit will call out to a series of telephone numbers. It will keep calling out until it receives a handshake verification from one of these numbers that the message is acknowledged. With plant operations, pavers and trucks costing hundreds and thousands of dollars an hour, it only takes one or two downtime avoidance events and the subsequent prevention to completely pay for the cost of the NiteOwl. The system also provides other valuable benefits such as an interlock for a burglar alarm, power outage or lightning interruption. Learn more

The T-Trac: Trunnion Tire Alignment Correction System. The unique T-Trac system lets plant operators simply and easily align the tire and trunnion system on drum mixers and dryers. One of the biggest points of dryer and trunnion failure is misalignment that keeps getting progressively worse because of the many thousands of revolutions that a rotary dryer or drum has each day. The T-Trac system can help skilled plant personnel set the tires and trunnions in alignment for improved wear reduction, lower horsepower and longer life operation. Learn more

Accu-Shear and other inline liquid blending devices. Hotmix Parts and Stansteel have pioneered a series of blending systems - everything from basic foaming up to and including elaborate blending systems for actually changing the grade of the liquid A.C. on site. In some cases, contractors are blending four or five liquids in order to meet the special requirements that they have for hotmix, warm mix or cold mix.

The Accu-Shear precisely meters the liquids and blends them together in a turbulent way to achieve proper mixing and blending. The benefits for the operation are many and help contractors save fuel, reduce roller passes on the road and better material release from truckbeds and silos and a significant decrease in blue smoke and emissions.
