Does your company have specific asphalt needs? The Bagela Recycler, along with the support provided by Pavement Recyclers and its dealers, is ready to meet whatever needs your company may have as the winter season approaches. For example, plants are starting to send out their closing schedules, yet the need for quality mix has never been greater due to the amount of work out there. Greg Harla, partner and head of sales and marketing at Pavement Recyclers, is ready, willing and able to share why the Bagela Asphalt Recycler and reclaimed asphalt is the answer to your needs.
How has Pavement Recyclers and the Bagela Asphalt Recycler solved so many asphalt needs around the country? Greg Harla, shares the amazing growth of the company and the Bagela Asphalt Recycler.
“We have gone from fielding questions like ‘what is it?’ and ‘how does it work?’ at leading tradeshows and events to comments like ‘we have one’ or ‘I have seen it work and it does just what you say it does!’ at the same venues.”
Not willing to stop there, Harla and company have perpetuated growth of the product line by continually improving upon what has proven to be a very solid concept and design. Throughout their time in the industry, the Pavement Recyclers team continues to educate and listen to their customers. For example, various customers asked for modifications for severe field use, which required the successful development and implementation of automatic jacking systems, remote control (automated) operator functions as well as many other modifications and upfits for specific uses. And the team at Pavement Recyclers delivered. The team was able to design, test and deliver the products within specific time periods with tremendous success! As a result, customers were able to better leverage the asphalt recycling equipment to produce reclaimed asphalt that met their needs throughout severe winter weather.
Natural Gas Recycler Helps Produce Reclaimed Asphalt with Reduced Emissions
Pavement Recyclers has been developing a gas-fired recycler for a couple of years now. In 2014, A.P.E. Publication featured the first prototype gas-fired unit in a cover story. After an extensive field-testing and several tweaks and improvements, the company is pleased to announce that the first two gas-fired units are in production, with the first to be delivered to a customer in California.
The unit is designed to run off of either a piped-in natural gas supply or a portable LP tank. Thompson further says the primary reason for development of the unit is to serve the markets on the West Coast where oil-fired units typically do not meet the strict emissions requirements set by those areas. Alan Thompson, technical director and partner at Pavement Recyclers discusses the development and safety process.
“After an extensive test period, we have a system down and a unit that exceeds our expectations in recycling rates, air quality and safety.”
More Info About Pavement Recyclers
Pavement Recyclers, the exclusive distributor of Bagela Asphalt Recyclers in the U.S., first introduced the recycler to the paving industry 10 years ago and continues to transform the market. For example, Pavement Recyclers focuses on educational efforts on the benefits (financially and environmentally) of reclaimed asphalt. As a result, the Bagela asphalt recycling machine is definitely no longer a stranger in the industry.
Additionally, due to the efforts of the Pavement Recyclers team, they are opening of a new Mid-West sales and demo facility in Farmington Hills, Mich. The new office features a Bagela BA10000 set-up in a “real world” working environment designed to demonstrate to customers the versatility of the unit in a static-mounted yard location, optimizing its industry exclusive output of 10 tons per hour. Also, the unit can be easily towed from the facility for a field demonstration if requested.
As Harla explains the move:
“Since we began our entity, we have always been firm believers that a live demonstration of the Bagela Recycler and its superior, indirect heat, continuous flow method of recycling high-quality asphalt, is the best way to understand why there are more Bagela Recyclers working in the field worldwide than all the other brands combined.”
Furthermore, Brian Fraser, general manager of Pavement Recyclers of Michigan, shares his thoughts on the new location.
“We are very excited to have this opportunity to further expose the greater Michigan marketplace to the Bagela Asphalt Recycler. We are also continuing to grow our relationship with the county system after successfully placing a Bagela unit into one district last year.”
