Plant Tear Down
The plant tear down procedures are basically the reverse of the set up procedures. The following procedures are to be
used to tear down the M081 Asphalt Mixing Plant and prepare for relocation of the plant to another site.
The M081 Asphalt Mixing Plant is equipped with hardware storage boxes. Each component of the AMP has at
least one of these boxes. They are intended to store hardware not used while the plant is operating but required
when it is in the transport rode. They also serve to store hardware not required while in the transport mode but
required when operating. Use these boxes for the Intended purpose. If hardware is required but not available on
a component, check the hardware box to determine if the hardware has been stored there.
Prior to transport and movement of the Individual trailers, all aggregate, fuel and asphalt should be removed from
all tanks, bins and drums. The trailers may only be transported safely when empty of raw materiel and product.
Do not stand behind or near equipment being moved or positioned. Account for all personnel before moving
Do not stand under or near equipment being lifted or lacked. Clear the immediate area around equipment being
raised or lowered into operating or transport position.
Do not place heavy loads or drive over electrical power cables or control cables. These cables may sustain
internal damage which could cause Injury.
Electrical power or control cables damaged internally may prevent operation of the plant
