Production of materials ranging from bitumen-bound to cement-treated base layer mixes.
Mounted on a flatbed semitrailer, and equipped with its own engine unit, the new KMA 240(i) mobile cold recycling mixing plant is set down close to the construction site and is ready to go almost right away. This mobile configuration enables rapid redeployment of the plant to any other location. Adding to the proven advantages of its predecessor, the KMA 220(i), the engineers at Wirtgen have upgraded both the performance and the precision of the new plant. The outstanding features of the new KMA 240(i) are higher mixing performance and an innovative cement metering system with automatic self-calibration system controlled by static weighing. Fresh bitumen is added to the mix in the form of bitumen emulsion or foamed bitumen.
Thanks to its powerful six-cylinder diesel engine, the new, high-performance Wirtgen cold recycling mixing plant can process 240 tons of material per hour. On a full tank, the engine provides sufficient power for up to two days of exceptionally cost-efficient production of recycled mix from a wide range of non-cohesive base materials – generally sourced from Wirtgen cold milling machines. The low engine emissions also allow operation of the plant in urban areas. Thanks to the highly effective soundproofing of the engine housing, plant operatives and local residents will particularly welcome the significant reduction of noise emissions.
