The asphalt mixing plant has a number of timers that may be altered to suit specific operating conditions These timers are
preset at the time of manufacture of the plant. The preset times are very good approximations of the time intervals
required for the proper operation of the particular control function. It Is recommended that they be changed only by an
individual fully trained and experienced in the operation of the Asphalt Mixing Plant.
Significant changes to the times entered when manufactured may cause the plant to malfunction and
could result in damage to equipment or possibly result in personnel injury.
Make gradual changes carefully observing the results in the plant operation. If satisfactory results are not
obtained contact the manufacturer.
