Self-Propelled Slip Form Remover

Staff | September 28, 2010

A machine that will open up reconstructed concrete highways three to four times faster than current methods and reduces cost of recycling material by 30 percent to 40 percent has been invented. A self-propelled slip form remover wedges up the existing concrete leaving the base intact, crushes concrete, cuts rebar into recyclable 3-foot lengths, and shoots out 70 percent of the concrete in 3/4-inch sieve size aggregate. By reducing the normal six-step removal process to a one-step pass, the machine removes one lane mile per day.
