When major surface rehabilitation is required, conventional approaches mean extensive planning, traffic delays, fleets of equipment and numerous trips to and from the construction site.
In-Place Recycling – is a process that uses of three independent machines working in concert, forming what is referred to as a "train." A recycle train mills the old surface, adds virgin aggregate and emulsified asphalt, then lays the new mix through a conventional paver. After the compaction the mix is ready for traffic!
In-place recycling is the method of choice when you have sufficient pavement to create a base binder layer on road of significant length.
Central Plant Recycling – is a process that is ideal for short runs such as village streets, city blocks and curb lines. It is especially effective when you need to use stockpiled millings.
This process mixes millings and virgin aggregate with emulsified asphalt. The mix can be designed to use these materials immediately on the current project or they can be stockpiled for later use.
