The new Terex E150P portable, low-load asphalt plant design from Terex Roadbuilding features a 150 tons per hour Magnum counter-flow drum, formerly sold under the Cedarapids/Standard Havens brand.

The Magnum E150P is comprised of a 64-in. (163 cm) diameter, 32-ft. long (9.8 m) drum that can run a wide range of mix designs, including tough state spec mixes for interstate paving.

Featuring counter-flow technology, the E150P drum mixer can run higher percentages of RAP than parallel-flow plants, while keeping within environmental regulations.

The new E150P drum design includes the same features found on larger Magnum drum mixers, including a SJ-260 Hauck burner.

Its adjustable slinger increases/decreases drum length to tailor drying and mixing time to the producer’s needs and is reversible for simple, accurate calibration prior to material entering the drum.

The E150P drum mixer is pitched at an operating angle on its chassis, saving on set-up and tear-down time.

Also included on the same chassis as the drum is the plant’s jet-pulse-style baghouse and the motor control center. By combining these components on one frame, the need for running duct work, return dust screws and large high-amperage wiring is eliminated, saving additional set-up/tear-down time.

The E150P plant is operated with Terex Impulse controls, formerly sold under the CMI brand, which is capable of running all state spec mix designs.

In addition to the drum-baghouse chassis, the base portable plant design includes a self-erect silo, four cold-feed bin unit complete with a screen and delivery conveyor and an asphalt cement tank/control house frame, giving producers four-chassis portability.

“The goal with our new Magnum E150P portable plant is to allow producers to make short moves within a weekend,” said David Emerson, director of product development.
