Maintain a constant
head of material in front of your screed with AC700 automatic material control.
Remove bumps in the finished mat resulting from poor material management.
Improve mat quality
The material feed
system of an asphalt paver has a big effect on mat quality.
A fluctuating level of
asphalt material in front of the screed will affect the screed angle of attack
and produce bumps in the finished mat.
Lack of sufficient
material covering the augers can also lead to material segregation and a rough,
With the AC700
Material Control you create a controlled HMA flow path, so that quality and
texture of the mat is the same the full width of the screed.
How it works
The AC700 use
ultrasound to continuously monitor and regulate the flow of asphalt material to
the screed to secure a constant and even distribution of material across its
full length. It can be used for auger control, and to manage the material load
of the conveyor belt.
The AC700 comes in two
basic versions – a Material Controller operated directly from the unit,
and a Material Sensor operated from the asphalt paver. It exist in a
variety of types to fit the specific output of different types of asphalt
pavers. Which version and type you need depend on the requirement of the
