World of Asphalt and AGG1 2018 Show Preview Part 1

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.

How to achieve consistent asphalt density

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.

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.

Caterpillar Adds AP1000F and AP1055F Pavers

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).

Focus On Fundamentals Crucial For Contractor

Mainline production-paving contractors receive much of the industry’s attention, yet there is obviously a need for small- and mid-sized contractors too. They improve the local roads and provide niche services the larger contractors don’t.

Three asphalt compactors from Caterpillar

Caterpillar's CB54, CB54 XW and CB64 asphalt compactors can be used on all phases of asphalt compaction, reducing the need for a variety of rollers. They work well as a breakdown or intermediate rollers because of their high compactive forces and due to the high pounds per linear inch (PLI) exerted by these machines, they also provide excellent results when working in the finish position. Typical applications include highways, city streets, county roads, lane additions, industrial sites, overlays, airport runways and other production-sized paving jobs.

Caterpillar AP655D features Advisor Monitoring System

Caterpillar’s AP655D asphalt paver can be used to pave highways, streets, county roads, lane additions, industrial sites, overlays, airport runways and other medium- to high-production size paving jobs. The dual swing-out operator stations have four different positions and can be moved beyond the machine frame for greater visibility when precise paving control is required. Tilting consoles offer multiple positions that allow the operator to be comfortably positioned for long hours of operation. An Advisor Monitoring System includes project planning calculators, start-up checklists, engine operating parameters and many other features to assist the operator. The system also lists fault codes for machine functions, making troubleshooting quick and easy. The Mobil-trac undercarriage offers increased traction when operating on unstable bases or on grades, less ground pressure and better flotation compared to wheel-type pavers. High travel speeds allow quick repositioning at job sites or for travel to the next site. Mobil-trac can be purchased with either raised tread-bar belt or the smooth belt. The smooth belt offers less disturbance of the base materials, yet provides good traction on a variety of surfaces. An optional steel track undercarriage incorporates special quad-roller rear bogies, Cat D3 track rails, and automatic tensioning to deliver a smooth ride, and is a more economical alternative to the Mobil-trac.

High-production paver

Caterpillar’s AP-1055D is a high-production 3 m (10-foot) asphalt paver that features a Cat C7 turbocharged, 167 kW (224-hp) diesel engine. Dual swing-out operator stations can be rotated into four different positions, even beyond the machine frame for greater visibility.
