Full-depth reclamation

Full-depth reclamation, whether of the asphalt layer or the supporting substrate, is an innovative technique involving the milling and homogenization of both layers with the simultaneous addition of water and structural binding agents, which normally consist of cement and/or lime, or other specific materials. This operating method entails the on-site recycling of all material, drastically reducing the need of machinery and, as a result, eliminating the costs of disposing of the surplus material. Thanks to FAE’s specially designed heads, reaching significant depths is no longer a problem. What’s more, it is even possible to work successfully in areas that are difficult to access and in confined spaces where self-powered vehicles have difficulty moving, creating significant savings on initial investment. The result is a simplification of site logistics, given that it is no longer necessary to manage the surplus soil, contributing to a further reduction in cost. FAE heads are the only ones on the market that feature a variable geometry chamber. The rotor is attached to a moving frame that allows for extremely precise control over the working depth, without compromising structural strength. To complete the line, water injection systems are also available to control the operating temperature of the rotor and teeth that come into contact with the asphalt, guaranteeing consistent productivity and giving the soil the right amount of moisture for top mixing results.
