It is the 150 MBTU long-nose Phoenix® Talon burner and was built for Milestone Construction in Indianapolis, Indiana, to be used in a Dillman unified drum rated at 600 TPH (544 MTPH). The burner weighs about 6 tons (5 tonnes).

Astec burners offer the latest in reliable burner technology that is coupled with complete one-source responsibility.

The burner group engineers the burners to the specifications of each customer and manufactures each in a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. Prior to shipment, each burner is tested on one of Astec’s tri-fuel (oil, gas, and liquid propane) test stands to ensure fast and easy start-up at installation.
