New Roadtec heavy-duty tracked paver features high-density screeds
RP-2505 heavy duty paver features the European developed high density screeds
Roadtec has introduced the new heavy-duty steel track RP-2505 paver at bauma 2013.
The model on display features high-density screeds with a twin tamper bar screed, which was developed and manufactured in Germany.
The RP-2505 is a versatile machine capable of achieving high densities in stiffer mixes such as cold mix, base materials, and roller-compacted concrete, as well as conventional hot mix asphalt.
The screeds are electrically heated and vibratory and the twin tamper bars allow the screed to compact the material to extremely high densities. The screeds have a basic width of 2.55m and hydraulically extend to 5.06m. The screeds crown can be hydraulically adjusted from -2% to plus 4%.
The twin tamper bar screed includes dual screed controls and thermostatically-controlled screed temperatures for smooth operation.
A full width heavy-duty walkway is included on the rear of the screed, enabling easy operator access to either side. Similar to screeds on other Roadtec pavers, mounting locations for automatic grade controls are found on the two arms.
