Alternatives to the base cases were limited to consideration of changes in haul distance
, the production rate of the primary processing equipment, and system options that address residue sites that are not accessible to chip vans.
ISP's calculations, because of the short haul distance
, fixed the daily production of the entire operation at 8,000 to 10,000 tons of head material per day.
According to the report, Warm-Mix Asphalt: European Practice (FHWA-PL-08-007), the benefits of WMA technologies include reduced fuel usage and emissions by the machines used to lay the asphalt when compared to hot-mix asphalt (HMA); improved field compaction, which can facilitate longer haul distances
for the WMA and cool weather paving; and better working conditions compared to HMA due to the lower mix temperatures required by WMA that provide a more comfortable working environment.
VisionLink 2D Project Monitoring allows site supervisors, equipment managers, data managers and operations managers to monitor cycle times, load counts, haul distances
and cumulative volumes, tracking actuals against planned.
By packing optical channels together and varying different properties of the lightwaves for specific transmission conditions, these trials prove the feasibility and related efficiencies of deploying up to 40 Tb/s for long haul distances
and more than 50 Tb/s for regional distances.
