Hot-in-place asphalt recycling
Re-HEAT gives road crews a cost-efficient, environmentally responsible way to mill and overlay asphalt payment. It consists of a preheater, and a heater/recycler; together, the system measures just over 80 ft. long. The preheater gradually heats the existing 2 in. to 3 in. of pavement to 200° F. The heater/recycler then brings the temperature up to 350° F, paddles collect the softened material into an on-board asphalt drum mixer. Rejuvenating oil is introduced, and the recycled hot mix is applied.
