Hino launches 2011 medium- and light-duty trucks

Hino Motors Canada are introducing their 2011 medium-duty truck (MDT) line-up in September. The 268, 338 and 358 models feature a bold new design and functional improvements that improve the trucks’ flexibility and driver comfort, efficiency and safety. The MDTs will also boast significant technological improvements to meet new emissions regulations. All 2011 Hino MDTs will employ Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) to fully comply with 2010 EPA emissions requirements. Hino’s application of the technology is also expected to reduce fuel consumption by three to five percent.

Driver safety and efficiency is improved with the addition of a Bluetooth-enabled GPS stereo and a new easy-to-read driver information display.

The 2011 Hino 338 will receive a boost to 260 hp while the torque on the Hino 358 increases to 660 lb-ft. The changes will improve the throttle response and driveability of both models. Front-axle capacity on the Hino 358 also increases to 14,000 pounds.

A ‘clean chassis’ option will be available for the Hino 268, 338 and 358. Parts that were previously mounted on the outside of the frame rails have been moved to behind the cab.

Eric Smith, national sales manager, said, “The launch of these new trucks is a milestone for Hino. The trucks have been redesigned virtually from the ground up. Drivers will notice the bold new styling in addition to chassis and power train refinements.

“New chassis configurations and power improvements will open up new market opportunities for our products.”

The all-new, light-duty, Class 5 Hino 198 truck for 2011 is built on a 19,500-pound GVWR truck chassis coupled to a 220-hp, 7.6-litre turbocharged Hino diesel engine.

According to Smith, “the new Hino 198 will have the extra power and performance requested of our light-duty trucks by Canadian customers.”

Roadtec Presents Autotracking Package for Material Transfer Vehicles

The Autotracking package for the Roadtec Shuttle Buggy Material Transfer Vehicle automates the Shuttle Buggy allowing it to operate at a continuous speed with a paver. This new option enables the paver to set the speed for the Shuttle Buggy preventing any defects in the mat associated with stopping and starting the paver.

Currently, MTV operators have to continuously monitor and adjust their speed to keep their distance from the paver constant; with the Autotracking package, that constant worry is eliminated. The speed of the Shuttle Buggy is automatically adjusted up or down to maintain a set distance from the paver. This option seamlessly links the paving train and improves operation by eliminating inconsistencies with speed and distance.

Roadtec RX-600e Tier 4 Final Transition

The RX-600e cold planer offers a unique combination of power, balance, and efficiency. Previously meeting Tier 4 interim compliance, the new RX-600e is powered by a Cummins QSX 15 Tier 4 final engine with a maximum power of 675 hp (496 kW) @ 1,850 engine. True to the Roadtec way, the machine remains extremely accessible and operator-friendly with simplified controls.

The tier 4 final version of the RX-600e comes with a number of updated components including back lit ground controls. In order to provide additional safety and operator comfort, a dust extraction system is now a standard feature on the RX-600e. This system pulls dust from the primary conveyor and ejects the particles into the dump truck alongside the secondary conveyor.

TanGO rear-drum tangential oscillation increases roller’s flexibility

The BOMAG BW190ADO-5 tandem vibratory roller offers traditional front-drum vibration and BOMAG TanGO rear-drum tangential oscillation, increasing the machine’s flexibility. With TanGO, vibration forces are always directed horizontally, and the drum maintains continuous ground contact, so the roller delivers efficient compaction results after only a few passes. Reaching beyond traditional highway and roadway projects, the versatile BW190ADO-5 roller can be used to compact more sensitive applications such as working within close proximity to buildings and on bridge structures.

The BW190ADO-5 offers a mainline 78.3-inch (1,990mm) rolling width. The TanGO vibration system is built on careful coordination of exciter system to drum weight ratios to deliver optimum compaction performance. The rear drum boasts a highly wear resistant drum wrapper surface, covered by an eightyear/ 8,000-operating-hour warranty, ensuring years of reliable service with low operating costs.

MOBA-matic levelling system with new temperature sensor

MOBA Mobile Automation AG’s MOBA- matic levelling system for asphalt pavers now has a material temperature sensor that displays to the MOBA-matic II control panel in real time while paving is in progress.

The temperature sensors can be installed with a magnetic mount at different positions on the paver, either in the hopper to monitor temperature on delivery, or in the area of the screed. The material temperature is measured throughout the paving process. This process will work best where agitated material can be measured.

ROAD BUILDERS SEE BIG GAINS IN PERPETUAL PAVEMENT

A perpetual pavement is a multi-layer design consisting of a renewable surface layer, a strong, rut-resistant intermediate layer, and a flexible, fatigue resistant rich-bottom layer.

Designed to last a minimum of 50 years, perpetual pavements initially cost approximately 30 percent more than conventional road structures but deliver numerous advantages, notably reduced costs for road rehabilitation over the long term.

FIVE WAYS TO PREVENT ASPHALT RAVELLING

Ravelling is one of the most common, but easily preventable failure modes of asphalt pavements. Ravelling occurs as individual aggregate particles dislodge from the pavement surface downward. It usually starts with the loss of fine aggregate (fines) and advances to the loss of larger aggregate sizes.

A ravelling pavement will deteriorate in an exponential manner, meaning that deterioration will become progressively faster with time. A ravelling pavement will initially lose fines, leaving a pock-marked surface texture, followed by the loss of larger aggregate sizes leading to a rough surface texture with large, exposed aggregate, eventually resulting in the loss of the entire lift of asphalt pavement.

Process Heating Company’s Clean-Operating Electric Heat Helps Asphalt Plants Meet Sustainability Goals

Process Heating Company’s Lo-Density Unitized Storage Tank Heaters provide unique environmental benefits that can help asphalt producers achieve sustainability goals, including NAPA’s Diamond Achievement Commendation and its new Diamond Achievement Sustainable Commendation.

Electric heat is safe, consistent and friendly to the environment because it heats without combustion or emissions, and it eliminates a source of fuel spills. Electric heat offers 100% energy efficiency because all of the energy is used to heat, when compared to the inefficient burning of fossil fuels. In addition, the efficiency will always be 100%, even after many years of operation, without costly maintenance. Electric heat also eliminates stacks that must be monitored for emissions, along with eliminating air quality and boiler permits that must be pursued and maintained. Unitized Heaters can be interfaced and coordinated with other plant electrical equipment so that the load of the heaters can be reduced to base rates, thus preventing increased demand charges or peak-use rates and lowering consumption cost.
