Find a Contractor/Supplier




  • One or more self-propelled reclaimers to pulverize and mix the asphalt pavement and underlying materials in a single pass and to mix stabilizing agent and additives into the pulverized materials in a second pass
  • The reclaimer should have controls to adjust depth of pulverization
  • The reclaimed should have a computerized liquid addition system, a meter to record the flow and total amount of liquid added, and a positive interlocking system linked to the speed of the reclaimer to adjust the liquid addition rate 


Calibrated Bulk Spreader

Calibrated Bulk Spreaders/Distributors

  • Required for application of dry stabilizing agents and additives
  • They should be non-pressurized mechanical vane-feed, cyclone or screw type capable of providing a consistent, accurate and uniform distribution of material while keeping dust to a minimum
  • Corrective aggregate or RAP may be placed by a mechanical spreader, conventional paver or by tailgating

Water Truck

Water Trucks

• For supplying water to the reclaimer and for the addition of moisture for compaction and curing

• Water trucks should be capable of providing a controlled consistent spray without eroding or otherwise damaging the FDR surface


Compaction Equipment

• Self-propelled rollers complete with properly operating scrapers and water spray systems as necessary

• Any combination of segmented padfoot, vibratory padfoot, rubber-tired, vibratory single or double drum rollers can be used

Water Curing

Curing or Fog Sealing Equipment

• A bituminous distributor truck or chemical curing distributor truck to apply treatment at a uniform rate over the full width of the treatment area in a single pass (if required)

• A self-propelled screenings or salt spreader to apply blotter sand at a uniform rate over the full width of the treatment area in a single pass (if required)
