World of Asphalt will be held in Houston, Texas, from March 6 to 8 and features educational programming and exhibits focusing on the latest technology and innovations for the asphalt industry. The Agg1 Aggregates Academy & Expo, co-located with World of Asphalt, offers educational sessions and exhibits on the latest developments for the aggregates industry. The following are highlights of products that attendees can expect to see at the shows.
Compaction issues can be caused by a range of factors. Poor drum system maintenance, lack of planning, incorrect equipment selection and inadequate operator training are just some of the factors that can cause problems during the compaction process. Some mixes are more difficult to lay down and compact than others and in those cases experimentation on the job may be the only solution when a mix is being used for the first time.
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.
Performance improvements and technology with a customer-friendly interface are key benefits of the new F-Series Pavers from Cat Paving Products. Several features help improve fuel economy while maintaining high performance levels. Engine performance is aided by the 167 kw (225 hp) Cat C7.1 ACERT engine, which meets European Stage IV and U.S. EPA Tier 4 Final emissions regulations without sacrificing power. On some F-Series models, a Cat C7.1 engine is also available that meets emissions equivalent to U.S. EPA Tier 3 and E.U. Stage IIIA. It provides power of 186 kW (249 hp).
The new B-Series line of Cat® Utility Compactors, including CB22B, CB24B, CB24B XT, CB32B, CB34B, CB34B XW, CC24B and CC34B, feature key enhancements that aim to help contractors achieve compaction more efficiently.
