Eurovia's Breining micro-surfacing applicator: covered more than 75,000m² in southern England
Eurovia Specialist Treatments in the UK has added a new Breining applicator to its micro-surfacing fleet for automatic product mixing with pinpoint accuracy.
Eurovia says that the new Breining applicator has already demonstrated its improved efficiency capabilities in the English county of East Sussex where the machine has covered more than 75,000m².
The machine is fitted with the latest version of the Nova 2 computer system. This is assisted by an aggregate humidity sensor which allows precise mixing accuracy. The machine also has the latest Euro 4 Duetz computer-controlled power unit which has been installed to provide a far quieter and more fuel-efficient power supply, says Eurovia.
The vehicle offers an increased emulsion tank capacity of 4,000litres that allows the teams to complete two full hoppers of aggregate to every single fill-up of emulsion, saving valuable loading time during the day.
The built-in stainless steel additive tank allows the contents to be kept at a much more stable temperature, while the aggregate hopper – which is also made completely from stainless steel – has potentially twice the life of the conventional construction.
“The new machine strengthens the current fleet of micro-surfacing applicators,” said Paul Goosey, Eurovia UK production managing director.
Breining, part of the Fayat Road Maintenance Equipment Division of the Italian FAYAT Group, is based in Cossé le Vivien in north-west France.
Eurovia UK is a wholly owned subsidiary of Eurovia SAS, which is a European provider of transport and infrastructure services, and ultimately part of VINCI.
