Astec's Double Barrel Green System saves energy and eliminates smoke and emissions without compromising mix quality by using water to produce a foamed warm mix asphalt.
- No smoke, no smell - light oils in liquid asphalt never reach boiling point
- Run high percentages of recycle with standard grade of asphalt
- Longer pavement life due to less oxidation of mix and more uniformity of compaction
- Reduced fuel consumption and increased production due to 50 degrees F lower temperature
- Improved workability because foamed liquid asphalt coating has lower viscosity
- Longer pavement life due to less oxidation and more uniformity in compaction
