Dynapac’s MF2500CS Minimizes Segregation with IMIX System
Material segregation occurs during loading, transport and dumping. Larger material tends to move to the outer sections and smaller material settles in the middle of the material flow. The MF2500CS from Dynapac, a part of the FAYAT Group, Fort Mill, South Carolina, works to minimize this with the IMIX system, which uses three devices: conical augers in the hopper, a flow divider in the conveyor and a mixing system at the end of the main conveyor.
The augers in the hopper push the large particles toward the middle of the conveyor to join the main flow. The material is transported by the movement of the belt to the top, where the flow of material is split by a flow divider into two streams; these streams of material are mixed and blended at the end of the conveyor by an auger mixing system before leaving the main conveyor. This unique arrangement is designed to equalize temperatures within the mix while blending large and small stones.
Dynapac’s DistanceAssist automatically maintains distance between the material feeder and paver. The feeder is equipped with a precise laser sensor, which allows the feeder operator to virtually connect to the paver and follow the speed of the paver movement. The feeder driver can focus on the job of material transfer. Combined with the possibility to save multiple distances, feeding two pavers in echelon becomes less stressful with the Dynapac MF2500CS and SwingApp.
Dynapac Swing Assist helps the operator by saving the SwingApp height and angle of swing at both pavers’ location and the operator can recall the positions by the press of a button. In combination with DistanceAssist, the feeder drives automatically to the correct position and the SwingApp moves directly over the hopper of the paver.
The MF2500CS featured at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020 was equipped with the 3-foot extended SW6500 SwingApp conveyor for long side reach for paving over barriers and in-line or echelon paving applications. The newly developed 28-foot-long conveyor, SW6500, has a side reach of 12.5 feet. Thanks to its integrated quick coupling cylinders and lifting points, the SW6500 can be mounted behind any MF2500CS within 20 minutes, according to the manufacturer.
