Fiber Feeders

FORTAfied® asphalt is stronger asphalt.

Introducing fiber into the mix at the asphalt production facility is simple with FORTA-FI®.  In both batch and drum plants the dosage rate is 1 lb. of fiber per 1 ton of asphalt.  Individual bags of FORTA-FI® can be added manually at the top of the pugmill in batch systems or fed through the RAP collar in drum plants.  Portable mechanical delivery systems are available for use in larger projects, including an automated fiber-feeder option.  Adding the 3-dimensional reinforcement properties of FORTA-FI® is easy. Give your asphalt projects the strength to resist both rutting and thermal, reflective, and fatigue cracking with FORTA-FI®!
