Customer Situation/Issue: An aging parallel flow drum mixer was one of 10 plant operations owned by a major contractor. The customer wanted to keep trimming efficiency and it was very necessary to eliminate any blue smoke or other emissions because of their urban environment.

After Stansteel Recommendations:  A straight counterflow drum was chosen to process up to 400 tons per hour. Because of a very restricted plant plot size, the counterflow drum was designed to set on top of the existing frame and the burner located at the opposite end where it had been on the parallel flow. In addition, a custom designed primary knockout box and ductwork were pre-engineered to fit in quickly. Overall achievements, in addition to increased ton per hour rate, was approximately a 27% fuel savings based on lower exhaust temperature and improved hotmix custom engineered flighting design.
