Gencor’s Convertible Ultraplant® process combines the best of both worlds – an H&B® batch tower coupled with an Ultraplant® continuous drum mix installation. The Convertible Ultraplant® utilizes the award-winning Ultradrum counterflow dryer with a clever feature allowing the aggregates to discharge just prior to AC injection to fill the batch plant hot bins. The plant can then convert back to a drum mix plant to charge the storage silos without interrupting the plant operation. In addition, the drum mix and batch plant processes can be operated simultaneously and, if necessary, the silos can be charged from either the batch or drum plant. The advantages of the Gencor’s Convertible Ultraplant® system are obvious: greater fuel efficiency, lower operating cost, the benefits of both a highly flexible batch plant business, and the efficiency and low maintenance of a continuous drum mix plant.
