Asphalt Rubber or Rubberized Asphalt, as it's sometimes referred to, is a process of blending crumb rubber produced from recycled waste tires into liquid asphalt cement (bitumen) to produce an extremely resilient high performance, modified binder that is used in the paving process. The hot mix asphalt that is produced with Asphalt Rubber binder creates a roadway that is significantly more durable, longer lasting, quieter and safer than roads paved with conventional asphalt.
Phoenix Industries offers a wide variety of specially designed equipment to service the modified asphalt industry. The AR150M model blending unit shown below, has filled a gap in markets that was not previously served. It is a small, very economical blending unit that enables a company to enter into the asphalt rubber production business in an area or country where it is a new market. The AR150M produces 10 - 15 tons per hour of rubber modified binder, so it is sufficient to work with an asphalt plant at rates up to 150 tons per hour of finished hot mix. This unit is designed to fit in a 40’ sea container for ocean shipping or on a regular flatbed trailer so transportation costs are very low. A larger AR250 (25 TPH) model is available where higher production is needed.
In addition to manufacturing equipment, our experienced team at Phoenix Industries offers a wide variety of related technical services to assist in new market development such as presentations, training seminars, material specifications and binder & mix design formulations.
