The modern cold recyclers and soil stabilisers – here's how they work.
Soil stabilisation scores top marks in comparison to soil exchange as it requires fewer truck transports, results in shorter construction times, saves resources and reduces CO2 emissions. When operating as a soil stabiliser, the WR uses its powerful milling and mixing rotor to mix pre-spread binders, such as lime or cement, into the existing, insufficiently stable soil at working depths of up to 560 mm to convert it into a construction material of high quality in an in-situ process. The resulting homogeneous soil-binder mixture offers high tensile strength, compressive strength and shear strength values as well as long-term water resistance, frost resistance and volume stability. Typical applications include the construction of paths, roads, motorways, foundations, parking lots, sports grounds, industrial parks or facilities, airports, embankments, backfills or landfills.
