ASTEC Builds 500th Burner
ASTEC, Inc., an Astec Industries company, has test-fired the 500th burner manufactured since Astec entered the burner market in 2003. Astec built the 100-million BTU/hr gas-and-oil-firing Whisper Jet® burner to be used with a new 375 MTPH ASTEC batch plant produced for Aztexnika in Baku, Azerbaijan.
