The use of reclaimed asphalt, or recycling, has become a necessity. Governments increasingly want the reclaimed asphalt from old roads re-used in an effort to be more environmentally friendly. Recycled asphalt (RA or RAP) also can provide you with cost savings on several fronts.

Ammann provides several options to help your recycling and cost-saving efforts. Regardless of the system you choose, modern Ammann plant technology will provide a quality recycling process and product.


  • Significant reduction of production costs due to lower costs of bitumen, minerals and transport costs
  • Supported or promoted by statutory legislation (country specific)
  • Less impact on natural resources (fewer oil and aggregate requirements)
  • Reduction of expensive storage facilities
  • CO₂ reductions


RAP Cold Addition into the Mixer

  • 25-40% of RAP utilisation possible, depending on system, mix temperatures and moisture content
  • Inexpensive, straight-forward system
  • Low maintenance
  • Possible to retrofit on all plants
  • RAP and aggregates dosed separately into pug mill
  • Good combination with low temperature mixes

RAP Cold Addition into the Dryer

  • 40% of RAP utilisation achievable
  • Easy to retrofit on most plants (with some adjustments on hot elevator chute and hot mineral bins)
  • Can be combined with cold RAP system for greater flexibility during plant operation


RAP Warm Addition via separate RAP RAH60 Parallel Dryer

  • Integrates expertise gained from countless plant operations around the world
  • Can utilise up to 60% hot recycled material
  • Screens new aggregate/minerals
  • High feed ratio
  • Gentle heating
  • Works in combination with the cold feed system


RAP Warm Addition with Counterflow RAP Dryer

Low bitumen damage
  • No radiation heat
  • Gentle heating of RAP
High efficiency
  • Low exhaust temperature
  • High RAP temperature
Low emissions
  • Indirect heating
  • Homogenous heat distribution
  • Recycling rates of up to 100% are achievable
  • Enhances chances of approval by governmental agencies
  • Recipes are more flexible as there is no need to overheat the minerals


Asphalt Recycling

Treat your RAP Material with Care!

  • Sensible re-usage of reclaimed asphalt
  • Conservation of primary resources
  • Economical advantage

To use this valuable secondary resource, Ammann offers the Asphalt Recycling Shredder RSS 120-M.

  • Consistently and efficiently processes recycled asphalt, from milled materials to asphalt slabs and large chunks
  • Patented technology utilises milling cutters with interchangeable teeth for efficient and gentle crushing
  • Technology is powerful and fuel efficient and complements other environmental friendly efforts built into the machine, including minimised sound and dust emission levels
  • Makes RAP less sticky – and easier to work with – through reduced fines
