M&M Distributions Asphalt Recycler has completely changed the way asphalt is recycled on the job. This is the only Asphalt Recycling Machine that not only heats asphalt but truly recycles rap into usable asphalt at user, not producer quantities. Asphalt recycling has become a huge market over the past few decades due to poor economic conditions and the skyrocket on oil prices. If you're in the market for an asphalt recycler, you probably already know the cost savings involved with re-using existing pavement for the job. The need for asphalt recycling is massive for municipalities and government entities bombarded with cut-backs and shrinking budgets that can't afford to repave a road or parking lot with fresh hot mix asphalt.
Now, professional contractors and city crews can easily recycle their existing asphalt for a fraction of the cost, all while benefiting the environment with less landfill waste and it gets better... Our BIG A T2 Asphalt Recycling Machine is a trailer mount unit that weighs in at 8,600 lbs, which means you can easily pull it with a heavy-duty pickup truck, and that means you can park it at the job site and recycle your asphalt pavement on the spot.
Up to 2600 lbs of recycled asphalt product can be loaded into heavy gauge bucket wide steel hopper. After loading, the steel drum begins to rotate using diesel power hydraulics and the Asphalt Recycler begins the process of transforming a previously discarded load of rap into hot usable asphalt in just 20 minutes. After loading the hopper is then hydraulically raised to allow the seven hundred thousand BTU Beckett burner to be placed just inside the reinforced steel hopper.
The process of transforming the recycled asphalt product into hot better than new asphalt is now underway. Michigan Department of Transportation is producing asphalt at 20 to $25 per ton instead of $80 to $120 for new. By using reclaimed asphalt and used asphalt shingles, the process is not just free but smart. The savings are immediate. Through the use of specially designed steel baffles inside the 450 Burnell hardened steel heating drum, the asphalt is folded over to provide maximum heating and mixing while preventing the product from burning and scorching. At a cost of over $75 per ton for new or $25 per ton for recycled better than new asphalt, the benefits to the environment are only an additional incentive to adopt the process of onsite asphalt recycling.
The addition of asphalt shingles or other sources of asphalt cement like our BIG A Mix Renew brings the AC content back to a premium grade meeting or exceeding department of transportation specifications. The design and engineering of this asphalt recycler is similar to our entire line of asphalt maintenance equipment. It has been manufactured for quality, long life, and easy maintenance. The large outer doors on either side of the asphalt recycler make the heating drum, drive chain and hydraulics easily accessible. There are no complicated foreign parts to make repairs expensive or cause expensive down times. The asphalt recycler allows the user to change the recipe to fit the application and the current weather conditions. A hydraulic lift raises the entire load for easy unloading into a waiting hot box reclaimer or directly to a waiting asphalt application.
Asphalt Sealcoating Directs Asphalt Recycler takes otherwise discarded waste and turns it into a highly usable working material. It recycles costs effectively in good and bad weather long after the asphalt plants are closed for the season. Even in cold and wet weather conditions, this asphalt recycler has the ability to heat a load of recycled asphalt product every 20 minutes to the desired usable temperature. During the coldest part of the Midwest winter, our asphalt recycling machine will take asphalt product and produce load after load of hot mix asphalt for use on potholes, street patches and water main repairs to road surfaces that would otherwise be left until spring. Our asphalt recycler is at 2 + tons per hour recycling unit from millings pulverized or chunk asphalt. After years of working with Michigan department of transportation officials, this asphalt recycler has reinvented the process of recycling asphalt into a cost-effective green solution.
