Astec debuts 100% RAP plant
Asphalt plant manufacturer Astec, an Astec Industries company, has outlined its innovative approach by offering asphalt mix producers a 100% reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) plant.
With the addition of the 100% RAP plant to its product line, Astec said it is now able to offer a complete array of plants covering the spectrum from 0% to 100% RAP usage.
Astec calls the 100% RAP plant the RAP KING, and it is being seen as part of a display showcasing the company’s entire range of drum offerings highlighting RAP usage.
Astec president Malcolm Swanson says: “The RAP KING 100% RAP plant represents the culmination of efforts to offer producers a viable option for safely and efficiently producing a mix with only RAP.”
