USING A DRYER-DRUM IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF SULFUR EXTENDED ASPHALT (SEA) PAVEMENTS, DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION REPORT

Sulfur-Extended-Asphalt (SEA) will become increasingly more important in the future as the supply of asphalt dwindles, the cost of asphalt increases and the sulfur supply exceeds demand. SEA binders had been used successfully in conventional stack plants and this study proves that these binders can also be used in dryer-drum plants. Emissions problems (SO2) did exist with the dryer-drum plant used, but with wet scrubber capability this problem can be solved. This study involved the placement of two test sections and the report presents a description of the work. As a result of this study, it is also advised that the dryer-drum plant's binder control system be calibrated before SEA concrete mix is produced, and also the water susceptibility of the mix be studied as part of the design.
