For use with its own line of asphalt plants as well as competitive brands, Asphalt Drum Mixers, Inc. offers baghouses in stationary and portable configurations, capturing dust and contaminated air created by the asphalt plants, and releasing clean, filtered air into the atmosphere. The 14-ounce-capacity, 400-degree-rated nomex bags are housed in 11-gauge, galvanized-steel cages, where they act as filters, trapping the dust. The clean air, complying with EPA standards, is eventually forced out by a Twin City BCS Series exhaust fan. Most of the trapped dust can be sent back to the hot aggregate and used in the mixture.
