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.”

Neal Manufacturing Upgrades DA-350 Sealcoating Machine to Increase Productivity and Ease of Use

Neal Manufacturing, an industry pioneer in asphalt sealcoating equipment, upgraded its DA-350 Dual Applicator sealcoating machine to enhance productivity and ease of use. The three-wheeled, self-propelled unit has a 350-gallon tank and allows contractors to apply sealcoat with squeegee and spray systems.

Neal added a high-powered blower to the front of the DA-350 to help users quickly and easily prepare the surface for sealcoat application. The blower produces more than 6,000 cfm, triple the output of a typical walk-behind blower, for fast and thorough dirt and debris clearing. The blower unit rotates, allowing contractors to lock it in an upright position for transportation or move it down for operation. The nozzle on the blower articulates 360 degrees enabling the contractor to blow debris in the optimum direction. Once the blower cleans the area, a 40-gallon fogger system cools surfaces prior to application to ensure optimal adhesion.

Bergkamp’s New MA30 Applies Mastic Surface Treatment to Preserve Asphalt Pavement

Bergkamp Inc., is introducing the MA30 Frictional Mastic Surface Treatment Applicator that allows contractors and government agencies to apply Frictional Mastic Surface Treatment over highways, roads, parking lots and airport runways to protect the surface and extend the life of the pavement. It applies a material mix that is made to precise specification, which results in fewer operator calculations and on-the-job adjustments, minimizing operator training time. The full-length ribbon mixer works to maintain the proper material consistency, regardless of the truck engine speed during transport to the job site. The Frictional Mastic Surface Treatment is then applied over the existing pavement through a variable width, low pressure spray bar that has side-shift capabilities.

Frictional Mastic Surface Treatment is a mixture of asphalt emulsion, increased levels of angular fine aggregates, recycled materials, polymers and catalysts. The purpose of Frictional Mastic Surface Treatment is to minimize future maintenance treatments and get traffic back on the pavement more quickly.

Process Heating Company to Showcase Hassle-Free Low-Watt Density Tank Heaters at World of Asphalt 2015

Process Heating Company will bring its safe, consistent, long-life, hassle-free electric tank heating technology to World of Asphalt, March 17-19, 2015, in Baltimore, Maryland. Process Heating Company’s Lo-Density Unitized Storage Tank Heaters may be installed into any above-ground tank or vat, and dissipate controlled heat as low as three watts per square inch on the heater’s sheath to prevent coking or damaging of temperature-sensitive material. Unitized Heaters feature the company’s unique drywell-style elements that reside inside the sheath, making them accessible from outside of the tank and eliminating the need to drain the tank to service the elements. Process Heating Company’s tank heaters enjoy decades of problem-free operation.

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 provides additional environmental benefits, including the elimination of stacks to monitor for emissions, as well as no air quality or boiler permits to pursue and maintain. Customizable dimensions make the Unitized Heaters easy to install into either horizontal or vertical tanks/vats. The heater is installed by cutting a rectangular opening near the bottom of the tank, sliding the heating element and control panel assembly into place and welding the unit until it is sealed liquid-tight. 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.

Astec V-Pack Stack Temperature Control System Receives Patent

ASTEC, Inc., has been awarded patent number 8,863,404 for its V-Pack Stack Temperature Control System. The V-Pack Stack Temperature Control System extends the range of mixes that can be produced without requiring that the flights be adjusted. The system’s “V-flights,” unique drum flights with a deep V-shape, and its use of variable frequency drives (VFDs), which provide control of the drum rotational speed, are keys to the control system managing an asphalt plant’s exhaust gas temperature and increasing overall efficiency.

The Stack Temperature Control System automatically controls exhaust gas temperature across a range of mix types and operating conditions by making drum speed changes. The system keeps baghouse temperature relatively stable as mix temperature changes and even as mix types change from hot mix to warm mix, from virgin to high RAP, and from dense graded to open graded mixes. These kinds of production changes would cause baghouse temperature changes of over 100° F (38° C) without the V-Pack Stack Temperature Control System.
