Cold In-Place & Central Plant Recycling

Suit-Kote performed the first CIPR project in New York State and has placed more than any other contractor to date.

The Problem

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.

Two Solutions

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.

The Benefits
  • Maximizes the use of existing materials.
  • Incorporates "tried and true" mix designs.
  • Achieves sound base-binder pavements.
  • Is able to accept traffic immediately after lay down.
  • Restores proper curb line, grade and slope.
  • Completed in a single pass it eliminates potholes, cracks, ruts, heavy pavement buildup and major surface irregularities.
Its Applications
  • Ideal for urban, residential, state & county route applications.
  • Roads marred by potholes, wheel ruts, cracks & major structural problems.
  • Ideal for returning built-up bridge underpasses to safe clearances; also reduces dangerous dead-load materials on bridges.
