A Blend of Technologies

Asphalt plant producers are playing a significant role in boosting the popularity of asphalt recycling by manufacturing plants that are capable of recycling reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP). Although many recycling plants are designed for large operations, this article describes a new plant, aimed at the smaller contractor market, that offers portability and low capacity. The plant is capable of producing hot mix asphalt mixes with up to 50% RAP content and is suitable for projects involving low-volume roads or city streets. The unit uses a counter-flow design, a configuration that makes it easier for producers to obtain permits for operation in states that have strict air quality regulations.
