The heart of the G-Series® is built around the unique patented counterflow Ultradrum® technology. The innovative Ultradrum® has been proven in 100’s of applications around the globe for producing high quality hot mix without degradation, cleanly, and efficiently. The G-Series® Drum is available in 150, 200 U.S. Tons per hour of hot mix asphalt.
The Ultradrum flight design concept provides for the highest efficiency heat exchange between the aggregates and the combustion system making it the most efficient drum mixer in the industry. Each flight section is designed for maximum wear life, low maintenance and results in even drum loading.
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.
The Genco Astraflame® burner has a proven performance record in rotary dryer applications. The Astraflame burner achieves complete, efficient combustion without the use of refractory heads or combustion chambers. As a result, more of the BTU heating value of the available fuel is applied directly to the drying process without unnecessary heat loss making it one of the most efficient burner applied to rotary aggregate dryers.
