Fliegl’s ‘Asphaltprofi Thermo’ is first choice for German Cities and Communities

Whether it’s building a new highway through a tunnel or renewing the surface of a tree-lined road, Fliegl’s Asphaltprofi Thermo has proven itself with its ingenious combination of thermo-insulated body and push-off technology which enables a quantum leap in terms of installation quality. Ideal conditions for road construction such as a sunny, windless summer day with temperatures between 25 and 30°C and a maximum distance between the mixing plant and the construction site of 30 minutes are rare. Asphalt paving often has to be done under less favorable circumstances, so using conventional thermo-insulated transport vehicles is sometimes associated with massive quality losses. The reason for this is the socalled "thermal segregation". Even in insulated truck bodies, a cold layer forms in the upper area. Ironically, this cold layer slides into the paver first. The Fliegl Asphaltprofi Thermo solves this problem.
Due to the permanent mixing of the asphalt, its consistency is evenly tempered. When the butimous mix is supplied to the asphalt finisher immediately after docking, the bit-by-bit and at any time metered transfer of the mix to the finisher begins. The pushoff process also leads to a perfect mixing of the asphalt during unloading and thus to a continuous homogeneity of the mix. As a result, the installation of demixed asphalt is largely reduced and the quality requirements are easily met. The executing construction companies thus gain safety by using the pushoff technology. The mix is delivered hot and homogenous enough so that the required degree of compaction can be achieved at all times. Thus, contractual penalties or fines can be avoided.
Haulage firms or subcontractors which use vehicles with a push-off function score with their customers, the executing construction companies, with convincing arguments. They are able to prevent expensive claims for damages by using the push-off technology and are available to the additional costs in terms of machinery investment are negligible and amount to only 1.2% to 6% of the asphalt building costs. It is worth it to compare theses extra costs with the considerably higher costs for later complaints. Good quality costs money. Poor-quality building is much more expensive. In terms of advantages, the “Asphaltprofi Thermo” scores with authorities as reliable partners in public procurement procedures. Fliegl‘s “Asphaltprofi Thermo” is not only an innovation in asphalt building but also a useful investment.
