TITLE
Access improvements to rotary dryer
ARTICLE
At Peterborough Asphalt Plant the only means of access to the rotary dryer was though the burner opening, making access for maintenance and inspections difficult.

Following the fabrication of a second access point via a hatch at the input end of the dryer and the installation of a catwalk, access and egress have been significantly improved. Lifting of parts and tools has been made much easier with improved ventilation of the dryer whilst work is being carried out.
