EVALUATION OF BITUMINOUS SURFACES PRODUCED BY THE TURBULENT MASS PROCESS

The new turbulent-mass process for mixing asphaltic concrete paving mixtures has been under study since its recent introduction in 1970. It is increasing in popularity with contractors because of two reasons: the mixing plant requires less equipment; and the process itself appears to results in a significant reduction in polluting emissions. All of this should reduce the cost of production. Field and laboratory tests and observations indicate that a satisfactory product can be produced by this process, one that is at least equal to conventional plant-mix. /FHWA/
