New WIRTGEN SP 90i Paver Series Permits Paving Up to 30 ft. Wide
The new WIRTGEN SP 90i series of large slipform pavers – which permits paving from 6 to 30 ft. – was introduced to the world at World of Concrete 2015 in Las Vegas.
The WIRTGEN SP 90i series includes the two-track SP 92i, and the four-track SP 94i, which was shown at World of Concrete in two-lane configuration, or 26 ft. wide of its maximum 30 ft. It was shown paired with the WIRTGEN TCM 1800 texture curing machine, and equipped with a Leica 3D control system.
The “i” in SP 90i designates these pavers as having “intelligent” power and emissions control systems, and both the SP 92i and SP 94i are Tier 4 final emissions compliant. Next-generation controls provide superior regulation of machine performance, and the diagnostic system has a standardized interface for quick, targeted service when necessary.
The SP 92i and SP 94i’s Eco mode system provides power on demand, automatically matching engine output to jobsite performance requirements, ensuring maximum engine efficiency, with reduced diesel fuel consumption and noise levels.
The new SP 90i series comprises the world’s most versatile, highest production slipform machines. It offers dowel-and-tie bar inserters, finishing beam, super smoother and many other options. It can be controlled either with stringline, or stringless by a variety of aftermarket systems.
The benefits of the SP 92i and SP 94i include unprecedented accuracy, which leads to higher production with less hand finishing; utmost machine flexibility to meet changing job site requirements; ease of use with a quick learning curve; and ease of troubleshooting.
Its fully modular inset mold system permits paving of concrete slabs with central crown from 6 to 30 ft. wide, using automatic crown adjustment. Edge slump adjustment is done hydraulically, and concrete can be spread by spreading plow or spreading auger. The pavers can use up to 24 electric or hydraulic vibrators, the positioning of which can be adjusted hydraulically. The SP 90i series offers integral curb capability and zero clearance paving.
Both the SP 92i and SP 94i are powered by a Cummins QSL 9 diesel engine generating up to 310 hp. Depending on configuration, the SP 92i will weigh 65,000 to 100,000 lb., and the SP 94i 65,000 to 145,000 lb.
