A chip spreader is a unique self-propelled machine for laying of precoated chipping surface treatments provides long-time conservation and maintenance of the roads. Roads once constructed needs constant repair as it is prone to wear and tear due to weather influence and rolling traffics. A chip spreader through chip sealing gives special protective wearing surface to an existing pavement. For maintaining the quality and giving the roads a long-lasting effect, stone chipping is one of the most effective method and this is done by a chip spreader.
Applications Of Chips Spreader
Chip spreader is one of the important machine for the maintenance of an infrastructure. Its other applications are :
- Chip spreader distributes different quantities of chips for optimum grip of asphalt layers evenly.
- Chip can be distributed directly behind the pavers.
- It can also be applied to bituminous chips also.
- Chip flows continuously without the problems of oversized grains and humidity.
Mechanical Operations Of A Chip Spreader
Chip spreader is powered by diesel engine and has spread hopper of different size. An individual one foot power gates gives the variable hopper flexibility and increases productivity. Other equipments used by Chip spreader are conveyor belts, container, hydrostatic drive, planetary axle etc.
Before spreading chips, asphalt is mixed with water. This emulsified mixture is then applied to the road using a Chip spreader or spray truck. As soon as the liquid asphalt meets the road surface, the water starts to evaporate. After this a layer of crushed gravel is applied by a spreader. Next, the gravel is compacted and embedded into the asphalt by rubber-tire rollers.
