Phoenix Industries announces the completions and shipment of one of their AR150M model asphalt rubber blending units to OTP Company of Hanoi City, Vietnam. The AR150M is a specially designed plant used to produce a high performance, modified binder material called Asphalt Rubber that is used in the asphalt paving industry. Asphalt rubber, or rubberized asphalt as it is sometimes referred to, is a blend of asphalt cement (bitumen) and crumb rubber produced from waste tires, that when used for the production of hot mix asphalt, creates a longer lasting and more durable roadway.
Technical Director for Phoenix Industries, Kelly Sockwell stated, “We are always excited to have our equipment go to a country we have not provided to in the past. We are starting to see more and more countries around the world embracing this innovative GREEN paving process and feel the placement of this plant certainly helps to strengthen our position as a leader in the industry.”
Besides the equipment, Phoenix Industries is providing a complete package of technology transfer that includes binder and mix design services, onsite equipment operations training and assistance in developing local specifications.
Dr. Serji Amirkhanian, Director of Research and Development at Phoenix Industries said, “We feel the technology and training we provide is equally as important as the equipment we manufacture. We want to see the customer be successful so we look at ourselves as more of a partner than just a vendor.”
Phoenix Industries is an environmental solutions company that manufactures equipment and provides new technologies for the modified asphalt paving industry.
