Hot in-place recycling (HIR) is a process for rehabilitating deteriorated asphalt pavements. HIR recycling enables repaving to be 25-30% cheaper than traditional asphalt resurfacing systems and minimizes the disruption of traffic. Martec's AR2000 Super Recycler is a self-propelled equipment train, consisting of two identical Preheaters, a Heater-Miller and a Heater-Mixer as the main units totaling 210 feet (64 m) in length, with a conventional paver, a rubber-tired roller and a vibratory roller added to handle laydown and compaction. This train recycles asphalt pavement in five separate stages: preheating, hot milling, heat and stir, pugmill mixing, and laydown and compaction.
