Environmental Issues

     All Parker asphalt plants are designed for maximum operating efficiency, including energy-efficient dryers and burners for maximum heat transfer, and energy-efficient power transmissions also providing minimum maintenance requirement.

     To enhance thermal efficiency, and reduce noise nuisance optional thermal insulation may be applied (dryer, elevator casing, hot stone hopper), and optional sound attenuation may be applied.

     Dust collection systems are selected to suit operating environment, with stack emission levels as low as 8 to 10mg/m3 achieved on sensitive installations.

     Urban, low level 'factory style' plants available where planning constraints apply.
