Category: "C": Construction Equipment

Roads will not be constructed unless one will get help from a certain construction company.  Since the government is the first one who thinks of paving the roads for the public's convenience, careful planning is necessary.  To make the workload easier though, road construction equipment is often required as well.

The equipment used in constructing and paving roads is not the same as those employed in business and residential construction.  Mixers and concrete plants are included in the list together with cement fly ash silo systems and hydraulic sweepers.  Soil compactors and vibratory rollers are also needed.  Look at the most common types in the list.
Concrete batching mixing plant

This is a type of road construction equipment used in order to construct not only highways but bridges, airports and even multi-storey buildings.  Most concrete batching mixing plants are pneumatic operated with bulk head gates and aggregate buckets.  It is powered by a 4-load cell on a mounting screw conveyor.  The plant is composed of a cement and water weigher, mixer, plant control cabin, control panel and radial scrapper.  Generally, the concrete batching plant is large-scale equipment for road construction.

Hydrostatic sensor paver

This equipment is designed with state-of-the-art components making it suitable for all types of projects ranging from main roads and rural roads to airports and motorways.  It is basically made up of an engine, a driver, a splitter gearbox, an operator console and a remote control panel.  Conveyors, sensors and screeds are also part of the paver.  Most manufacturers ascertain that the hydraulic sensor paver has a centralized grease lubrication system, track roller bearings, emulsion cleaning system and oil drain pipes.
Other types of road construction equipment

Soil compactors are also essential to road constructions.  These machines have standard equipment inside the package.  A list includes hydrostatic systems, oscillating center joints, articulated steering, steel sun canopy, hour meter, horn, oil bath dry air, engine filter and tool kit.  It also has engine oil pressure, engine temperature, fuel gauge, oil level and air filter clogging indicators.

Another type of road construction equipment is the hydraulic sweeper or broomer.  It has a cleaning brush that operates through the help of a hydraulic motor.  The dust on the road construction is collected through a special waste collecting container.  This equipment is often used before and after the road construction process.  A lot of manufacturers promise that this machine is highly dependable because it is easy to operate and is powered by a tractor or a fork lift.
