Alternative to mobile plant

For many years US-based Astec Industries has offered its customers the facility to completely customise their modular aggregate plants.

Now with its feet firmly entrenched in the Australian aggregate market, Astec Australia is able to offer the same service on the ground here.

Modular means various pieces of equipment dovetail to create a complete process flow. Using pre-engineered modules such as primary, cone and screening stations, Astec is able to customise a solution to meet the specific requirements of every customer.

Developing all CAD drawings, including the layout of the plant and process work flow diagrams plus 3D imaging of the plant, allows the customer to see how easy it will be to efficiently increase productivity in the plant with a custom-built solution.

With the sole aim to improve efficiencies and safety for its customers, while ensuring industry standards are upheld and throughput is either retained or increased, Astec Australia is proud to bring this service to Australian shores.

?We hope that this is just the start of ensuring that every aggregate plant in Australia is as efficient as possible,? said Tony Barton, the eastern region sales manager for Astec Australia?s Aggregate and Mining Group. ?No longer do you have to accept what comes out of the box. It?s all about customisation and redeveloping our equipment to suit a specific need. It?s why we have been so successful in the US and will hopefully have the same effect in Australia.?

All turnkey solutions are pre-assembled and tested at Astec?s factory to ensure seamless integration on-site when installed.

The benefits of the modular plants are:

?    Increased plant efficiency.
?    Pre-engineered, along with lower construction costs.
?    Modular construction is easier and faster to install.
?    Fixed timeline and installation costs.
?    Operation and maintenance training.

Astec can also augment current production facilities to increase efficiencies in working plants with various dovetailed solutions.
