For over a quarter of a century, ACE Group LLC (Asphalt Contractor Equipment), a BLS Enterprises’ company, has been an industry leader and producer of wear parts for the asphalt industry. ACE manufactures and distributes high-quality parts and components for all major pavers, live-bottom and side-dump trailers, pick-up machines, asphalt plants and other asphalt transportation equipment.

Full chain and bar assemblies, designed and constructed to give you the best combination of strength and toughness, are available now for a variety of popular machine brands, including Barber-Greene, Blaw-Knox, Caterpillar, Cedarapids, Gilcrest, LeeBoy, Roadtec, Vogele and more.
We use high-quality chains from our partnerships with the leading chain manufacturers in the U.S. These chains are designed to exceed the listed ultimate strength ratings, which is very significant. Chains with greater ultimate strength have higher actual yield and greater fatigue strength. With our chains, you get extra reserve strength to withstand high-shock loads.
Our manufacturers’ chains are built to withstand the most rugged conditions. They use the latest heat-treating techniques to manufacture every component. Each component is also carefully designed to close tolerances to ensure precise pitch control for smooth sprocket/chain interaction. That means longer service or wear life for chains and sprockets.
Meanwhile, many of our competitors are still using imported chains, which are not made to stringent U.S. standard specifications. Instead of saving you money, these inferior chains will significantly increase your cost-per-hour-of-operation and your overall down-time costs due to premature failure.
We supply inclined scraper conveyor chains in 4″ to 6″ pitch with both K- and slotted-M style attachments. The chains are balanced to ensure continued safe operation, sidebars are hardened to resist the impact loading that may occur and rollers are specially heat-treated to resist outside diameter abrasion inherent in asphalt conveyors. These special features make our chains long-lasting and keep your operation running smoothly.
Having started our manufacturing process with quality chains, we then add durable steel bars (also called flights or slats) and hardened pins, providing you with an amazing, hassle-free product.

SCREED & FLOOR PLATES
Screed and floor plates are now in stock for most major brands, including Allatt, Barber-Greene, Blaw-Knox, Caterpillar, Cedarapids and Ingersoll-Rand. AR 450 Steel is our standard material for ALL screed and floor plates. But, at your request, we can upgrade to AR 500 or Chromium Carbide. Our plates have been proven to last at least four times longer than OEM plates.
Fabricated from C1045 steel and heat treated to a minimum of 50 RC hardness, our manufactured sprockets outlast some competing products by as much as five times.
We have an extensive inventory of sprockets and other steel undercarriage parts for thousands of machines in stock and ready to ship today.
We manufacture augers for all popular brands of paving machines. Our cast augers and liners are made with a high chromium content for longer wear. If we don’t have the augers for your machine, we can manufacture them on a custom basis. We have a system which enables us to produce them for the exact dimensions you need. For more information,contact us today.
Our burner boxes for Barber-Greene, Blaw-Knox and Caterpillar are constructed with a heavy-duty steel. With the introduction of the superpave mixers, a large number of our customers are finding that they have to turn the screed temperatures up to get a smooth mat when they aren’t using our Chromium Carbide product. This has resulted in drastically reduced wear-life for the burner chambers. Our heavy construction is the answer to this.
We are authorized distributors of SealMaster bearings. We can supply a full line of heat-resistant asphalt paver bearings for Allatt, Blaw-Knox, Cedarapids, Champion, Global machines and more. Also, we can provide you with high-heat greaseable bearings for Barber-Greene and Blaw-Knox models. Please send us your requirements and we will source the best product for your needs.
The RAPwrangler was designed to be powerful, efficient and easy to maintain. It can be used to render football sized chunks down to suitable gradations. The RAPwrangler eliminates the off-site pre-crushing of asphalt materials to be recycled. For more information, call us today at 1-888-878-0898.
The 20″ rotor is equipped with 312 replaceable tungsten-tipped milling teeth that shred football size chunks of asphalt down to 1″ at a rate of 250 tons per hour. The rotor spins at 127 RPM. constantly undermining the material in the 30″ x 40″ hopper directly above it.
It is designed to size material in congealed and oversized milling stockpiled at a rate of 20-250 TPH. It processes up to football-sized pieces at a rate of 125TPH to 150TPH. It may be set up with any size milling teeth. Your cost of processing RAP is as low as $0.45 per ton.

The RAPwrangler is mounted on a steel frame base. A portable feeder conveyor is on the left and a final conveyor is underneath feeding up to the drum plant. Our engineers are standing by to assist you today.
Basket flights can be produced with several modifications to improve the life of the part. One of these modifications is by simply using a thicker bar along the top.
ACE Group will manufacture your flights to your specifications to suit your drum. We typically use a 0.75″ x 0.75″ square rod for the tops of them, which is superior to OEM versions. Not only is it better, but we can also produce them at a cheaper cost for you.
We can also duplicate virtually any other style of flighting that your drum uses. Our goal is to reduce your cost per ton of asphalt produced, and to reduce your unscheduled downtime. You can be assured that we’ll be using the very best quality of materials and workmanship.
For a quote, just email or call us (1-888-878-0898)with your dimensions and part numbers for your plant, and we’ll be pleased to offer your our superior pricing.
BOLT ON WEAR PLATES
Bolt-on wear plates are an excellent way to line drag conveyor floors, inlet chutes, cones and many other areas of high wear. They are available in a wide range of sizes and can be cut to fit your specific application.
Other wear plates on the market are made of Ni-Hard, which, according to ASTM A-532/532M, are Class 1, Type A, B, C or D “white iron”. They have a range of 1.4% chromium to a maximum 11% Cr, depending on whether it’s a Type A, B, C or D.
ACE Group's bolt-on wear plates are made of High-Cr (M7C3), which is Class 111, Type A (ASTM A-532/532M) classification of white iron. This classification has a chromium content between 23-30%. Our High-Cr plates are made of 27% chromium and are several steps up the ladder from Ni-Hard in quality and performance for abrasion and impact resistance.
High-Cr plates are less reliant on the “chilling” process to achieve their hardness than Ni-Hard, due to its chemical composition. In addition, the hardness is more consistent through the entire thickness. Chromium also has a lower co-efficient of friction as well, which adds to its abrasion-resistance properties. We have a various number of sizes available. Call us at 1-888-878-0898 for sizes and availability.
ACE Group offers ACEBOND Chromium Carbide screeds and floors for pavers, pick-up machines and plant applications. Chromium carbide floor plates are designed to reduce the friction between the floors, the chain and bar assembly and the aggregate, increasing overall wear-life of the chain and bar.
We also offer augers, screeds and extension plates, tracks and components and chain and bar assemblies for various pavers, MC30/MC330 machines, pick-up machines, Shuttlebuggies MTV®, Flow Boy/Red River trailers, plant chains, motors, gearboxes and components.
ACE scalping decks are a very economical way to filter out oversized aggregate or RAP from getting into your mix. Economical, durable and dependable, these rugged devices will outperform decks that cost much more. Because of their simple construction, there’s less to maintain or to break down.
Our decks are constructed to use common sizes of screen cloth, thereby making it easy to locate the various sizes you need to get your mix done. We can also provide the cloths for you.
In addition, we can produce them in a custom fashion for you, such as locating the motor on a certain side, in the event that you’re tight for room. We can build you a stand for it or we can produce the entire conveyor line for you in either stationary or portable configurations.
