Ammann America plans to showcase its asphalt-mixing plant technology, as well as its compaction equipment, at World of Asphalt 2022, held March 29-31 in Nashville.

On display will be the ACP ContiHRT, a continuous plant, which separates the heating and mixing processes and is designed to yield higher-quality asphalt than conventional methods. The system enables adjustment of mixing times, providing flexibility and significantly reducing emissions.

Plant operators also appreciate the ability to seamlessly modify recipes without stopping and starting, a significant cost-saver.

The ABA UniBatch, a batch plant, also utilizes Ammann’s separate heating and mixing processes. It is among the lower-cost alternatives and is easy to operate and maintain. The plant is customizable and flexible and can be integrated into existing sites when needed.

Both plants employ Ammann’s as1 Control System, renowned for its intuitiveness and efficiency.

Ammann’s light compaction equipment includes rammers, vibratory plates, add-on compactors and trench rollers.

Heavy equipment includes single-drum, tandem and pneumatic rollers. These machines provide efficiency using leading technology and an ability to direct more force toward the target and away from the machine. This minimizes the passes required to reach compaction goals.
