MEILLER offers optimized body for transportation of mixed asphalt for roads & highway construction.
Energy saving is also a topic of significant importance in road construction. The temperature of mixed materials must be just right, as every degree of cooling counts. With this is mind, MEILLER has developed fully insulated asphalt tipper bodies for capacities 9 to 18 cbm. The pear shaped body is sheathed in additional GRP thermal insulation and closed with a hydraulic cover. This ensures that the material is not cooled by the air stream or low temperatures and can be processed longer. Sensors are fitted to the tipper body to monitor asphalt temperature during transport with either a monitor at the rear or in the driver’s cabin providing continuous information. The discharge chute is given generous overhang to facilitate easy tipping in to the road finisher.
