The Gencor Ultraplant®

Drum Mix Plants

Equipment Description

Gencor’s Ultraplant® concept is the most fuel efficient, environmentally clean and lowest maintenance design available to the hot mix industry. A totally integrated drum concept that allows high production continuous mix with high-volume, high moisture recycle and the optional flexibility of feeding a batch tower, all in a unitized drum design.

Gencor’s Ultraplant® has taken top honors year after year for being the only hot mix plant with a positive volatile capture and recovery system that totally eliminates blue smoke, and asphalt odors from the process and feeds them to the combustion process as fuel.

As a result, Gencor plants have been accepted in the most stringent and environmentally sensitive areas of the country, producing high-quality polymer and superpave mixes.

The Gencor Ultraplant® combines simple design with the most advanced control technology and massive heavy construction unmatched in the industry. Backed by world-class product support and training, Gencor Ultraplants provide contractors years of dependable long life with low cost- low maintenance operation for the highest profitability.

The Ultraplant® is available in stationary, skidded and portable configurations with production capacities from 100 to 800 tons per hour.

Drum Mix Plants

Equipment Configurations

The Ultradrum®

The heart of the Ultraplant® is built around the unique, patented counterflow Ultradrum® technology. The innovative Ultradrum® has been proven in hundreds of applications around the globe to cleanly and efficiently produce high-quality hot mix, without degradation. Designed with all the heavy-duty features you’ve come to expect from Gencor, the Ultraplant® is without question the heaviest built and most rugged drum mix plant in the industry.

Standard Features:

  • Patented 5-way adjustable Converta® flight
  • Patented combustion T-flights reduce energy costs
  • Sweeping material inlet flights for even drum loading
  • Self-cleaning RAP inlet allows up to 50% RAP
  • Larger drum diameter reduces air velocity & dust carry-out
  • Friction driven trunnion rolls for lower noise, maintenance, and energy
  • Positive volatile reclaim system captures and destroys hydrocarbons

Advantages:

  • Patented blue smoke system
  • Adjustable mixing flights
  • Total Air Low Nox Combustion

The isolated mixing section is located behind the burner so there is no chance of liquid asphalt coming in contact with the burner flame. This means there is no oxidation of the asphalt, no degradation of the mix, and no asphalt vapors entering the exhaust gas stream. Vapors generated in the mixing section are pulled through the burner by a patented volatile reclaim system and consumed as fuel. There are no odors or blue smoke emissions to pollute the environment.

The Genco Ultra II burner is extended well inside the dryer for maximum efficiency and contact with the wet aggregates. There are no refractory chambers or high maintenance combustion ports. The Ultra II is the only burner to use compressed air to atomize each droplet of fuel for optimum fuel efficiency.

The Ultradrum® A.R.E. – Advanced Rap Entry

The patented Ultradrum, which leads the asphalt industry, now takes the next leap forward with the introduction of Advanced Rap Entry (A.R.E.).

The ARE concept utilizes the gases and convective heat of the combustion zone to preheat and advance the release of internal moisture in the recycle pavement. This advanced release of moisture results in higher production due to a more even and staged release of water vapor in the drying process.

The material process flow starts at the virgin aggregate feed end of the Ultradrum where aggregates are quickly heated to temperature as they approach the burner. While the aggregates approach the combustion zone, the recycled asphalt (having previously been reduced in size) is introduced in the combustion zone, behind the specially designed combustion flighting.

This special flighting allows the RAP material to cascade around the combustion zone and absorb conductive and convective energy. The heat from this action releases internal moisture before it enters the mixer. RAP, virgin aggregate, and baghouse dust combine in the mixing zone, away from the direct radiant zone. Asphalt cement (AC) is then added to a thoroughly dried mixture of primary dust, virgin aggregate and RAP to form a fully coated and homogenous mix before exiting the drum.

Any hydrocarbons or steam vapors generated from the mixing process are captured by Gencor’s patented Volatile Reclaim System and returned to the burner as fuel.

Gencor has demonstrated the effectiveness of the new A.R.E. option with some of the largest asphalt producers in the United States. These plants run applications in excess of 700 tons per hour with as much as 50% recycle (300 tons per hour) of recycled asphalt.
