Conveyor Paving with Hot-mix Asphalt-
This method utilizes hot mix asphalt which is transferred to the location using a truck. Thereafter, the material is dumped into the hopper or storage area of the transfer machine. The material is continuously released to the conveyor machine and transported to hot screed or heated flat section. The mixture is laid flat on the ground using the conveyor which is operated by grade and slope sensor.
Cold Mix Paving-
These techniques utilize cold asphalt material. The cold mixture is, then, dumped directly on the roads from the dump truck. The mix is allowed to settle in the cold temperature and evenly spread on the ground using a motor grader. After spreading the mix, the asphalt is rolled flat using double drum vibratory or a static roller. This technique is best suited for the location with low traffic load.
