|This company is a major producer in the Western U.S. They operated a long, parallel flow drum mix, but were very limited on the amount of recycle in an environmentally sensitive area. The company contracted with Stansteel to custom fit a counterflow drum on their existing frame and trunnions and fit in on an existing plant site. They saved a great deal of money by not having to do lots of infrastructure like concrete foundations and major electrical wiring. In addition to the heavy duty counterflow drum with the extended long nose burner, a knockout box primary for fines carryout reduction was provided. Stansteel assisted in the removal of the old components and the installation and successful start-up were made prior to the normal start of their season. The company now is able to run more recycle much more competitively and with a lower fuel usage.
