The importance of recycling asphalt is increasing along with the growing need for recycling in the road construction process, also in connection with emerging regulations and directives encouraging its use as wholesome building material. For this process, specialists from PROJPRZEM-MAKRUM created an innovative machine – GDA asphalt destruct granulator.
The GDA asphalt destruct granulator is one of the newest projects of specialists in the segment of crushing and grinding machines of PROJPRZEM-MAKRUM. However, it quickly became an important element of the company’s offer. Its unique features have convinced our customers for coming back for more machines of this type. Such a customer is one of the leading companies in the aggregate industry, dealing in the extraction and processing of raw materials, the production of prefabricated products, bituminous mass and various industry services, including the execution of infrastructure construction. PROJPRZEM MAKRUM has already supplied them with third GDA granulator.
The asphalt destruct granulator is a unique, modern and pro-ecological asphalt milling crusher. It is characterized by high efficiency and low energy consumption. Modern technology and the use of selected, specially designed components guarantee work in any temperature or weather conditions. This device has been designed according to latest material trends, ensuring maximum long life cycles for consumable parts and leaving great ergonomics during use and service. An additional advantage of the asphalt destruct granulator is the full adjustment of gaps and roller settings allowing obtaining the desired size of asphalt granulate. The Asphalt Granulator has a modular structure. Thanks to this, it can be part of the production line, both in the stationary version and on mobile platforms. The machine is the answer to the latest challenges in the subject of road infrastructure modernization and constantly tightening ecological standards.
In 2017, the Council of Ministers issued a regulation on the management of certain components of the Treasury, pursuant to which GDDKiA was given the opportunity to provide local government units with unnecessary materials, e.g. destroyed asphalt from road repairs. Legislation in this area and market trends have long been monitored by specialists of the PROJPRZEM MAKRUM company, looking for ways to refresh the offer of the MAKRUM brand – a producer of crushing and milling machines with more than 150 years of experience. This is how the GDA – Asphalt Destroy Granulator was created.
Asphalt destruct is a valuable building material used in the construction and modernization of road infrastructure. Rapidly developing technology for the production of bituminous mixtures causes that mixtures with the content of asphalt are widely used in the world. This trend is supported by European directives on the use of industrial waste and legislation in some countries (e.g. Great Britain, where landfill taxation has been introduced).
