Corporate Profile: CWMF
Mission Statement: We go the extra mile to provide exceptional asphalt equipment solutions and service.
- Plants/plant components pertinent to production (can include crushing equipment)
- Plant controls/automation
- Paving and/or compaction equipment/automation
- Pavement recycling/pavement reclaiming equipment
CWMF specializes in drums and baghouses. However, we can offer the entire catalog of hot mix plant equipment. I would say that our most important product offering is customer satisfaction.
Customer satisfaction is a result of total communication. Generally speaking, it is solving all of the specified pain-points.
In this industry, the big things have already been done. We would like to look at our equipment and see where we can make the enhancements. We have a patented silo batcher that features removable gates. This allows for maintenance to be done with ease and safely. Our Wedgelok tire suspension system is a clever design that gives you the ability to properly secure the tire to the barrel. This system also works fantastically as a retrofit to existing set-ups.
We also offer our Honey Badger RAP crusher to process RAP millings in real-time. Versus pre-processing, this method drastically reduces the cost. It also allows you to run the RAP at a lower moisture level as there is less surface area in stockpile in a milled state. Less moisture in the product benefits the bottom line.
Sustainability with Asphalt
It’s not a secret that asphalt is a recycled product. However, most people do not realize that asphalt is the number-one most recycled material in the world! This industry has also been very innovative in utilizing other foreign products into mix designs. These products may include seashells, crushed glass, roofing shingles, ground tire rubber, plastics, steel slag, and many others. Today, with the help of rejuvenators and additives, contractors can increase the amount of RAP that they use in a mix. CWMF has worked closely with its customer base to engineer its rotary drum, so it can be capable of handling higher amounts of RAP input. CWMF is proud to be working in an industry that is at the top of the list of recyclable products.
In the case of Net-Zero, we like to take a look at the complete plant and compile the metrics so we can see where we can increase efficiency. Often the little things are ignored, I.E., we look for leaks in the drum and baghouse and recommend corrective action. We will also take a look at the baghouse temperatures to ensure the plant is operating optimally. Additionally, VFD’s (variable frequency drives) can be looked at on the plant components. When applicable, the conversation of increasing RAP percentages is always a go-to.
