Astec will offer a complete line of concrete plants, including individual components and full plants, through its newly formed Concrete Products Group. The line will include roller-compacted concrete plants that feature continuous blending using digital belt scales and variable-speed conveyor drives. A load cell accurately indicates the weight of the aggregates, while the computer controls adjust for the production rate. Astec claims its own twin-shaft mixers deliver uniform mix in the shortest times allowable.
