LANGENTHAL, Switzerland – Asphalt Contractor, a magazine dedicated to asphalt producers and contractors, has recognised Ammann’s Dynamic RAP Addition Module as one of the top 30 products of 2021.
Winners of the 2021 Top 30 Editor’s Choice Awards presented by Asphalt Contractor, a North American publication, represent the construction industry’s most preferred products, equipment or services.
The winners, determined by the editorial team and contractors themselves, must pass certain criteria to be considered for the prestigious award. The editorial team looks at the most searched products on ForConstructionPros.com, equipment innovations that are gaining attention and traction on the jobsite and products that have sparked social media engagement.
The Dynamic RAP Addition is a unique product for effectively handling RAP content in various proportions and in varying conditions. This module is part of Ammann’s proprietary as1 Control System.
Dynamic RAP Addition allows modification of the RAP ratio on batch plants – even during production runs. The system helps plant operation and quality assurance staff compensate for the qualitative and quantitative attributes of the RAP being used.
“We at Ammann are honored and thankful to receive this prestigious award,” said Chris Perkins, Director of North America for Ammann. “Ammann is at the forefront of developing high RAP utilisation technology in our asphalt plants. This advanced technology allows for production of high-quality mixes while providing benefits to both our customers and the environment.”
The North American market has been a slow adapter of high RAP content mixes compared to other parts of the world, Perkins said. “However, we believe this will change in the midterm and high RAP mixes will be in more demand,” he said. “Ammann is confident that as the market evolves toward higher RAP content, our proven technology and experience will help producers navigate the change to high RAP utilisation in an efficient and profitable manner.”
Amy Schwandt, Group Publisher of Asphalt Contractor, said the annual award recognizes the most innovative and engaging products in the industry. “We are committed to providing contractors with a resource that features the latest and greatest advancements in new technology and product enhancements, while also serving the industry through our ongoing efforts to cover trends and critical issues in real time,” Schwandt said.
“The products chosen reflect the best of the best in the industry,” said Jessica Lombardo, Asphalt Contractor’s editor. “From new equipment to trending products, the Top 30 Editor’s Choice Awards is an ideal resource for contractors.”
