Stansteel® and Hotmix Parts & Service® are very fortunate to have some of the most experienced people in the asphalt industry particularly for technical service, plant diagnosis, modification recommendations and even entire business evaluations. There are a number of the team members that have decades and decades of experience; anywhere from 10, 25, 40 years or more of experience in the business and specifically involved in Operational and Executive Management. This is hands-on operating asphalt plants, running and growing major hotmix producers in various areas of North America.

We are now offering more of these services to the general industry and we’ve outlined a number of them here. These hotmix services can include everything from inspecting and reviewing a plant to seeing how it could be improved to gain production ton per hour, add important technology changes such as recycle products, RAP, RAS, foaming or even liquid inline asphalt blending. In the more complex terms, we can review and evaluate an entire plant operation or business operation to determine if it is operating at an optimum level or if there can be a plan to change, modify or improve to enhance the company business value.

Combustion Analysis and Burner Tuning

Technical experts look at the combustion system to determine levels of burner adjustment and if the proper combustion is being achieved. Also, recommendations can be made about the flighting, dust handling and complete induced draft fan for the main exhaust on the baghouse.

Electronic Control System Review

The existing controls can be evaluated, diagnosed and either upgraded or replaced. Also, installation services for the set up of electronics and training of the operators for proper use.

Air Systems Studies

Reviewing the air system, air handling, and pressure drops throughout the system can be reviewed. Many of the existing induced draft fans, baghouses, and primary collectors are not at all operating near performance and can significantly limit the production on the plant.

Business Evaluation

Many of our key personnel have extensive experience at setting up business operations from the start all the way to running multi-million dollar operations. We can evaluate either someone that’s in the process of trying to significantly change their business operations or perhaps position it to market the business to a new owner.

Plant Relocation

Since Stansteel has been one of the leaders in both used equipment and reconditioned equipment, often a customer is interested in the total cost to take down equipment from one location in order to set it up at another site.

Field or Factory Reconditioning

Our companies can dispatch from 5 to 50 field technicians for emergency repair or major reconditioning. Examples are dryer/drum tire or sectional replacement, complete slat conveyor rebuilding or air system retrofits.

Heating, Drying & Flighting Evaluations

In order to get the most out of an existing system, our engineers and technicians can examine the many factors involved in proper combustion, heating, and drying including flighting, seals, the condition of drum/dryer tires, trunnions and other major components. Since this is one of the high wear items and so critical in order to make quality hotmix asphalt, it requires constant monitoring and frequent measurement to see if it’s performing within standard.
