The Heartbeat Of The Pleasants Paving Facility - March 18, 2016
The drum being shown in the video is the “Heartbeat of the Plant”. The purpose of this drum is to produce hot mix asphalt from a mixture of three key ingredients. The ingredients being loaded into the drum are virgin aggregate, RAP (recycled asphalt product) and liquid asphalt. When the drum processes these ingredients, hot mix asphalt is forthcoming and then sent to the silos for distribution.
