RAPpro™ - 100% Recycled Hot Mix Asphalt Production

 

RAPpro

 

The RAPpro™ is an economically priced hot plant specifically designed to efficiently produce high quality HMA utilizing 100% RAP. This plant utilizes a revolutionary multi-tube in-direct heated, continuous flow Patent Pending design. When coupled with PelletRAP™ rubberized binder material used as a RAP rejuvenator and mix modifier extremely durable, high quality mixes are produced.

 

RAPpro Plant

This is not a reconfigured/modified standard type hot mix plant. We’ve truly reinvented the way HMA is produced. The RAPpro’s energy efficient, indirect heating design produces mix in an environment free of excess oxygen thus eliminating blue smoke typically generated by conventional plants when RAP content is too high. By removing the need for a large bag house and heated liquid asphalt storage tank the physical and emissions footprint of the RAPpro eases the permitting requirements.

 

Recycling Without Compromising Mix Performance

Each ton of HMA produced with a RAPpro is rubber modified hot mix made with the PelletRAP additive, a unique pelletized material that is transported and stored at ambient temperature. While most rejuvenators just soften the aged binder, PelletRAP modifies it with a PG 64 -22 binder blended with very fine crumb rubber made from recycled scrap tires and other additives specifically designed to revitalize badly oxidized pavement. The higher viscosity rubber modified binder also allows for increased film thickness on the aggregate so is more forgiving with variations in the old RAP binder.

The RAPpro Market

The majority of HMA production goes for City, County and State projects. This requires specification type mixes that normally will not allow the RAP content to be over 15 -25% and many surface mixes do not allow any RAP. A secondary market for hot mix producers is generally referred to as “Contractors Mix”. This would be for projects with less stringent requirements such as driveways, parking lots and private commercial & residential development road ways. With this mix, RAP contents may be as high as 50% but in most cases it is somewhat lower because of the limitations of the existing hot plant equipment. This contractors mix market is the primary focus of the RAPpro. Because of the unique ability of the RAPpro to efficiently produce a high quality contractors mix from 100% RAP and reclaim the AC value and recycled aggregates, the mix production costs are 40% - 50% less than typical hot plant produced mix. This, along with lower operating and capital cost makes the RAPpro a very attractive option for secondary HMA market
