Asphalt Additive Production

Makron Fibretec lines are designed to produce asphalt additives from recycled cellulose fiber.

Makron offers the technology to produce asphalt additives from recycled cellulose fiber. Our technology makes your production more efficient and delivers a high-quality product. We offer you complete Makron Fibretec production lines according to your volume needs and deliver them with intelligent automation included. We cover every aspect of the project from engineering design to commissioning and staff training. Recycled cellulose fiber is also an ecological and safe material for thermal insulation. Our technology enables you to produce both additives for asphalt and thermal insulation with the same production line. Learn more here.

Benefits

All the essential features

Makron Fibretec lines are designed to manufacture recycled cellulose fiber additives for asphalt. Our production lines come with all the essential features, including equipment to remove dust and impurities.

30 years of experience

We delivered our first recycled cellulose fiber production lines over 30 years ago. And today, we continue to deliver and develop some of the world’s most effective asphalt additive production lines.

Examples

Here is an excellent example of our asphalt additive production lines.

Asphalt additive production line

The Makron Fibretec line was developed to produce asphalt additives, as well as thermal insulation from recycled cellulose. This production line is optimized for 1,000 kg/hour capacity. The cellulose fiber can be processed further into pellets directly from the Makron Fibretec line or packed into various sizes of packages as loose fiber.

Features

Complete production lines

All stages of production can be covered with one complete line. The machines are designed to function perfectly together.

Two products from one line

With Makron technology you can actually use one line to manufacture both cellulose fiber additives for asphalt and cellulose fiber thermal insulation.

Process stages

Our production lines take care of all the stages in the asphalt additive manufacturing process.

Raw Material Feeding

In the first step of asphalt additive production the raw material, cardboard or paper, is fed onto the pre-handling table from where it is moved to the conveyor. The material is fed evenly to the line and the impurities are separated. On small capacity lines, the impurities are separated manually. On large capacity lines, the raw material has already been purified and baled, and the cardboard or paper bales are fed onto the conveyor.

What Makron does

The Makron pre-handling table is designed for manual sorting of loose paper or cardboard. For larger capacities, Makron delivers automated feeding systems for cardboard or paper bales.

Material Crushing

The raw material is conveyed to the hammer mill or shredder where it is crushed into small pieces for refining. This stage includes a fiber surge bin for intermediate storage. From here the paper pieces are sorted for further processing.

Trash Separation

After crushing, the material is moved to trash separation where all remaining metal and heavy particles are separated.

What Makron does

After pre-crushing, metal and heavy particles are removed using a magnet and Makron’s heavy particle separator.

Packing

The finished material, recycled cellulose fiber additive for asphalt, can be packed using different packaging technologies depending on your production capacity and needs. Makron’s packaging process packs the fiber into paper or plastic bags and presses all the air out to make the package compact and ready to transport.
