The future of paving, build green roads
Read more to discover CAMSAMERICA’s roots
Creating sustainable technologies to give reclaimed asphalt a second life has always been CAMS™ – the Company of Advanced Asphalt Machines for Sustainability – mission since it was born in 1964 in the heart of the Italian manufacturing and motor valley.
From the very beginning, CAMS™ has been devoted to the recycling industry developing electric shredders able to recycle asphalt with the minimum environmental impact. In 2001, two divisions were created, one devoted to production of asphalt shredders and the other one to service for paving equipment.
Over the years, CAMS™ has been growing and innovating together with its technologies and has now satisfied its customers all over the world by providing them with the most efficient and green machines designed for asphalt recycling. Sure of its experience and with the certainty of having the best products on the asphalt recycling market, CAMS™ will be starting a new business in the United States from spring 2022.
Shredders, not crushers: the essential source of economic efficiency in asphalt recycling
CAMSTM shredders are tailored for asphalt recycling. Unlike other manufacturers, which adapt mining and quarrying machines to recycling applications, CAMS™ shredders were born for RAP processing.
The question was: can a shredder that is kinder and gentler than a traditional impact crusher help recycling operations? The answer is YES. The patented shredding action of CAMS™ machines is meant to disrupt asphalt waste without crushing it. This results in fewer fines, guarantees 100% of original bitumen content reuse, and preserves the original grading curve of the road pavement.
The slow rotation mechanism of CAMS™ shredders shafts significantly reduces the wearing and a patented system allows to easily replace the components without disassembling the machine.
Future is Green
CAMS™ electric technology provides several environmental advantages. The whole range can operate in full electric mode for zero CO2 emissions (by-passing the Diesel engine) plugging the machines to the jobsite electrical net while guarantying the very same performances of the Hybrid-Diesel drive.
Field studies highlighted how the slowing rotating shredders are able to produce a very small amount of breathable dust, acoustic emissions and vibrations on the soil making the environment around the machine “workers-friendly”.
The APR™: The ultimate advanced asphalt machine
The APRTM – Asphalt Pavement Recycler is designed to fit a pre-shredding system, two shredders, an iron separator and a screener in a single mobile plant, that can be transported within the road standard US dimensions.
Thanks to a full set of patented systems, this unique range of mobile plants is the perfect technology to recycle from largest asphalt chunks and slabs to milled materials. The closed loop implement allows the users to feed the machine with one operation, obtaining a ready-to-use recycled product, recovering 100% of RAP, even in wet conditions.
When unplugged from the electrical net, the whole plant is driven by a single genset designed to perform with the highest level of efficiency, at the lowest fuel consumption rate.
The APR™ range, designed and developed for the American market will be launched at World of Asphalt exhibition in Nashville (TN) on March 2022.
