Vögele America, Inc. Super 1800-2 SprayJet paver
| September 29, 2009 |
The Super 1800-2 SprayJet paver from Vögele America, Inc. can be used to place both open-graded rubberized and Novachip thin-wearing courses. With SprayJet module mounted, conventional hot-mix asphalt pavements can be placed. The system that sprays polymer-modified binder in front of the mix being laid, followed immediately by aggregate, and then a second spray of rubberized binder. An extra emulsion tank — accommodated in the paver’s material hopper — that holds 1,320 gallons is now available for contracts requiring very large rates of spread, so a total of 1,849 gallons of asphalt emulsion can be carried on board the paver.
