Astec, Inc. introduces the 120 MTPH (132 TPH) Voyager plant. The Voyager 120 offers a compact, highly portable design. Unique for a plant in this class is the ability to run up to 30 percent reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP). In addition, it is backed by the best service support in the industry.
Voyager 120 Features
The Astec Voyager 120 is built around a counter flow drum featuring Astec V-fights. The V-flights provide greater uniformity of the aggregate veil during the drying process, which results in better heat transfer, a reduction of fuel use, and increased productivity.
To enhance portability, a hydraulically driven swing out drag and batcher can be set and ready to go in about 10 minutes. Other features include a reverse pulse baghouse, a controls cab with fully automated PLC controls, gravity take-up with direct drive, air ride suspension, and up to five cold feed bins and two RAP bins.
Voyager 120 Market
According to Andy Guth, manager of sales and marketing for Astec, Inc., the Voyager 120 is designed to round out the bottom end of the plant lineup, and to be an export plant for Astec in markets where needed.
"We're offering a small, portable plant with 30-percent recycle capability," said Guth. "The Voyager 120 will be instrumental in markets, like Latin America, where contractors do a small job, transport, and do another small job … always on the move. These jobs handle 2,000 to 5,000 tons (1,814 to 4,535 tonnes) of material. The availability of recycle will depend on the market."
Astec executive vice president Steve Claude noted, "Astec is excited about the opportunities for the Voyager 120. Initial feedback from the industry has been extremely positive. Several orders for this plant have already been booked with the first production model set to ship immediately."BACK TO ISSUE
