Dynapac MF2500CS IMIX – the right machine for high quality results
Thermal and physical segregation decreases the lifetime of a paved road. Dynapac offers a smart solution for customers who fight against this problem due to things like long distances from the mixing plant – the unique Dynapac MF2500CS IMIX, which combines low cost of ownership with improved pavement quality.
Mix it up with IMIX
The Dynapac MF2500 feeder allows continuous paving for a smooth surface, combining low running costs with reliability, and provides a result that extends the lifetime of the paved surface. IMIX extends these benefits to reach another level of feeding technology. It eliminates thermal and physical segregation, homogenises segregated material in three steps, and corrects cold spots before the mat is paved.
IMIX helps produce the perfect mix. The system homogenises the material before it is dumped into the paver bucket. For cold material, it can be switched off.
The Dynapac MF2500CS IMIX combines the mixing technology with low fuel consumption, low wear cost, low transport cost, combined with a long-lasting belt design, add-on SwingApp system, easy to learn HMI, and excellent visibility.
Dynapac MF2500CS with IMIX is the perfect partnership for high quality results. Operators will achieve major increases in the lifetime of highways and country roads (including tunnels and bridges), along with a decrease in the environmental footprint.
The IMIX system is easy to control and intuitive to use. It offers three different settings depending on application.
- Conical augers are in automatic mode and run with the conveyor to the conveyor drive.
- Manual mode lets the auger run all the time.
- Switch off the auger completely.
On the main screen the two MX components are easy to monitor and both systems can be set independently.
The heart of the IMIX
A conical auger in the hopper pushes the large particles, which are stagnant at the colder outer sections of the lorry, into the material hopper towards the middle of the conveyor to join the main flow. Due to the auger’s shape, colder material is added in portions to the hot middle stream, creating a homogeneous mix.
A large tunnel ensures bulk material transfer. Bulk material transfer and covers ensure that the mix stays hot. A flow divider in the centre of the wide conveyor splits the material into two streams.
A mixing auger end of the main conveyor blends the material together shortly before the material is delivered to the paver. A minimal number of transfer points help reduce the asphalt aging, which is caused by oxygen.
This set-up equalises temperatures and evenly mixes large and small particles. The result can be seen in homogenous and long-lasting road quality.
