While several factors contribute to the optimal veil produced by the CFM Series Counterflow Drum Mixer, there are two crucially notable components that work in unison with one another. First is Aesco Madsen’s custom SJ2 Bolt-in-Flights. These SJ2 flights were developed by industry experts within the company based off of decades of experience and careful research into the physics behind producing the PERFECT VEIL. Exclusive to Aesco Madsen drum mixers and available in a variety of angles for an added dimension of adaptability; the SJ2 Bolt-in-Flights have been central to the success and reputation that the CFM series counterflow drum mixers have received over the years.

In 1980, with his extensive experience servicing Boeing Drum Mix Asphalt Plants throughout the United States and Canada, John Ferris founded Aesco Madsen under the original name of Asphalt Equipment & Service Company (AESCO) as a registered corporation in the state of Washington. With a lean start-up investment of just $1,500 and a modest 1,700 square foot rental office/warehouse in Renton, Washington, the company’s primary purpose was to provide both field service and parts support to the road construction industry for asphalt plant related equipment. The initial customer base consisted of contractors throughout the U.S. and Canada equipped with Boeing Construction Equipment Company (BCEC) asphalt plants, as this is where the company’s main expertise consisted of.
Equipped with a fully adjustable dust hydration system, the Waste Auger’s fleet of water injection nozzles is strategically positioned along the length of the auger. This hydration system provides the moisture required for a clean discharge of the material from the system, as well as eliminates the invasive airborne dust produced by dry waste systems.
Aesco Madsen’s High Ratio Baghouses (HRB's), both portable and stationary, can operate at air to cloth ratios as high as 10:1. This new technology, not seen before in the asphalt industry, provides a more compact collector at substantially lower initial costs, fewer bags and cages to maintain, less wear and tear of the filter media, lower pressure drops, and reduced energy consumption.With design features such as: a high side air entry, a built in knockout chamber, even dust cakes, wider bag spacing, and high velocity nozzles; Aesco Madsen's HR Baghouses will truly provide the competitive edge in an already competitive industry.
