Fayat develops new Packliner coldmix plant
Fayat's versatile Packliner plant suits coldmix applications
Fayat intends to capture sales in additional market segments with its Packliner coldmix plant. The firm says that this plant suits duties in rural or urban road projects for which the use of products such as cold bituminuous mixtures is a major asset. Benefits include low production cost, easy transportation of mixtures and low greenhouse gas or smoke emissions.
This unit is equipped as standard with two feed bins for granular materials, with one volumetric bin and one weighing bin. This allows the production of mixtures based on virgin or recycled materials, and a third feed bin can be added as an option. The plant includes all of the necessary metering units for water, emulsion or cement metering units, in addition to the control and management cabinet, with these components mounted on a single chassis. The metering systems, combined with a long mixer, are said to make it easy to produce high-quality mixtures. Peripheral equipment, such as a lorry loading belt, can be added as required by the user.
Filippo Baldassari is head of global sales at Fayat Road Equipment and said, “The machine is smaller, lighter and more compact and can be installed in 2-3 days.”
Baldassari explained that the plant is targeted at the intermediate market segment. It offers better quality output than basic plants manufactured in emergent markets, according to the firm. The design of the plant is said to optimise mobility and it can be transported on a trailer or in an ISO container. This feature also allows for fast set-up times on site, due to pre-wired elements and factory testing prior to delivery.
The plant supplements SAE's range of small to medium-output, continuous cold-mix production plants. Its compact installation set up costs, without affecting production versatility or the quality of the mixtures obtained according to the firm.
