Presenting: Bagging machine for cold mix asphalt packaging

Cantat Associates Inc. is now offering equipment for Cold Mix Asphalt packaging into polyethylene bags. Depending on the machine operator's work rate, the production capacity of the bagging machine can go up to 120 bags (30 kg) per hour (4 to 6 m3).

The cold mix asphalt bagging machine is designed to package finished cold mix asphalt product into polyethylene bags. The machine hopper is loaded using a front loader. The hopper is equipped with a screw conveyor, used both as a feeder and agitator for the consolidated asphalt mix. In a uniform flow, the screw conveyor feeds the asphalt mix through a diverter valve into 2 chutes, for alternate discharge into bags. The production capacity is controlled via a variable frequency drive, which regulates the rotation speed of the screw conveyor. A weighing platform is located at the discharge station to monitor the batch weight. Lower and upper weight limits are set via the control panel. A slow discharge rate is automatically engaged for product top-up. Once the desired weight has been reached, the feed stops. The operator switches the diverter valve to the other chute and fills the next bag. Feed is switched on or off via pushbutton controllers, installed in both operators’ stations. Once filled, the bag is moved to the roller table-mounted heat sealing facility.

Specifications:

- Production capacity – 4-6 m3/hour (depending on personnel) or 120 bags per hour
- Heavy duty steel construction
- Frame supports: bolted to floor area
- Gear motor drive
- Feed hopper: volume 3 m3
- Double-chute discharge
- Control panel (incl. frequency-changing circuit, batching processor)

Presenting: Modular, mobile and stationary asphalt plants by WRT Equipment Ltd. - Canada

WRT Equipment Ltd. is a Canadian developer and producer of parallel (continuous) flow and counterflow drum-mix type, mobile and stationary asphalt plants. It is the main equipment supplier to the aggregate, mining and asphalt industries, as well as a supplier of asphalt plants to the US Army.

WRT Equipment Ltd. was founded in 1968 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and by 1978, the company developed a product line and began providing solutions to the road building industry. Today, WRT Equipment Ltd. is a manufacturer of high quality products and components for the aggregate, asphalt and mining industries.

WRT is committed to developing working relationships with customers, providing solutions to help their business succeed and reach production goals. WRT’s focus on providing solutions and quality-built equipment providing a long service life, blended with excellent service, is WRTs foundation for success.

Main advantages of the WRT plants

Mobility

Initial startup of the WRT plant with configurations and supervised installation, takes no more than 2-3 days, with additional training of on-site personnel.

Modularity (interchangeability)

The plants uses a design based on individual modules, allowing retrofitting the plant with additional (optional) components, when needed. For example, WRT’s cold mix plant, with production capacity of 7-30 TPH, can be retrofitted with additional modules, allowing it to produce also warm and hot asphalt mixes, with increased capacity of 45 TPH.

Economy

  • Fuel consumption is one of the lowest, thanks to the continuous production flow technology (6.43 liters per 1 ton of hot/warm asphalt mix, 1.0 liter per ton of cold asphalt mix), since both heating and mixing virtually  occur all at once – the material mixing zone is located in the 3rd portion of the drum mixer. Consequently, the heat, dispersed in the drum mixer does not release into the atmosphere and continues to heat the mix. The fuel consumption of batch plants, in comparison, is within the range of 11 – 13 liters per 1 ton of asphalt mix, which surpasses the fuel consumption of WRT plants by 71 – 102 %.
  • Energy consumption in these plants is also among the lowest. For example, the energy consumption of WRT’s 60 TPH plant – is only 150 kW/hr. Batch plants from other manufacturers stay within the range of 230 - 260 kW/hr, which surpasses the energy consumption of WRT plants by 53 -73%.
  • Reliability: The plant contains a minimal quantity of high-wear components, which dramatically decreases the costs of purchasing replacement parts and allows full-scale plant operation during the peak season, without having to halt production for repairs and/or part replacement.
  • The Drum-Mix technology: Thanks to its unique drum-mixer/heater, the material mixing time is 40 seconds, as opposed to batch-type plants where the mixing time is only 25 seconds. This enables the production of SMA while maintaining the same production capacity.

Asphalt mix quality

The plant is fitted with an innovative, accurate weigh batching system, allowing batching of aggregate materials with accuracy of ± 1.0%, bitumen ± 0.5% and mineral filler ± 2-3% while maintaining continuous asphalt mix discharge. An additional advantage is that mixing takes place within an inert environment without access to oxygen, which eliminates bitumen oxidation.

Article from National Geographic: Better Road Building Paves Way for Energy Savings

Warm-mix asphalt placed in Yellowstone National Park helped build U.S. government support for the energy-saving technology, which also contributes to smoother pavement.

Warm-mix asphalt placed in Yellowstone National Park helped build U.S. government support for the energy-saving technology, which also contributes to smoother pavement.When considering how cars and trucks generate such a large part of the world's greenhouse gas pollution, it's easy to overlook what lies beneath them. But under all that traffic, there are roads. And the paving material itself-the asphalt, concrete, and rock-and how it is placed, have an important impact on the atmosphere.

Energy goes into the construction of every highway and byway, whether it's made of asphalt, concrete, or even gravel; whether it's a narrow ribbon winding around mountains, an endless flat stretch across the prairie, or a congested freeway. Moreover, the way that roads are built and maintained has a significant impact on how much energy is burned by the vehicles that roll-or crawl-on the surface.

As governments weigh spending money to restore or expand existing roadways in the developed world and to construct entirely new ones in the developing world, they are asking questions about sustainability that were never considered in the early years of infrastructure build-out. The answers are not easy.

With public investment about $190 billion per year on highway, street, and bridge construction in the United States and Europe, researchers are working to develop a way for policymakers to make road construction choices that take into account the energy in every step of the pavement's long lifecycle. And the asphalt and concrete industries are introducing new technologies and mustering evidence on old ones, all to demonstrate their commitment to making paving greener.

Yakutia and Canada: New possibilities of cooperation

(Article from parliamentary gazette "Il Tumen" - http://news.iltumen.ru/topic.php?id=100216)

The Republic delegation, led by First Deputy Prime Minister of the Sakha Republic (Yakutia), A. Struchkov, arrived in Toronto to take part in the international Construct Canada 2011 conference and hold negotiations with several Canadian companies.

On November 28, the delegation visited the headquarters of Canadian company McAsphalt Industries Limited in the province of Ontario, which specializes in the production, application, research and development of innovative road construction and maintenance products.

The meeting was led by the McAsphalt Marketing Manager, Mike McLean, and the president of Cantat Associates, exclusive leader of McAsphalt products in Russia and the former Soviet Union Republics, Alexander Zevin.

In a presentation on road construction technologies, developed and employed by McAsphalt, Alexander Zevin presented technological solutions for road construction and repair.

The "Cold Mix Asphalt" technology is used for pothole repair in any time of year and under any weather conditions, which guarantees the high quality of repair works and prolonged life cycle of the pavement. This technology passed the engineering-technical expertise in 2005, with the participation of Canadian experts together with the Yakutia Public Institution on Roads Exploitation. The results of this expertise were followed by positive assessment of the feasibility of this technology's application in the republic.

A major advantage of the "Warm Mix Asphalt" technology, which was approved for utilization in road construction projects in the Sakha Republic (Yakutia), is the ability to extend the road construction season. When laying hot mix asphalt on a cold surface, the mix temperatures drop quickly, which prevents proper asphalt compaction based on the GOST standard requirements. Due to the poor compaction, potholes and cracks start to appear in the newly paved road immediately the following year. The "Warm Mix Asphalt" technology allows to extend the asphalt compaction interval and significantly improves the quality and life cycle of the pavement.

As part of the visit, the Sakha Republic (Yakutia) delegation visited the McAsphalt plant for production of emulsified bitumen products, as well as joint and crack sealants, used in a wide range of repairs of concrete and asphalt surfaces under cold weather conditions. The delegation expressed their intention to build a similar emulsion plant in the republic.

The sides emphasized the significance of the utilization of these technologies during road construction and maintenance works in the Sakha Republic (Yakutia) and expressed their intentions to continue their cooperation in this field.
