Return on Investment. The three magic words at the top of every business owner’s mind. More work in less time while using less material — yes, please. Easy-to-use equipment with rock solid dependability and exceptional customer service — by all means. You’re in business to make money. Let’s get to it. Bergkamp delivers the equipment you need to get the job done fast — and right the first time.

Slurry seal and micro surfacing are excellent solutions for roads that are in the early stage of deterioration. The mixture of aggregate, asphalt emulsion, water and additives are applied in a smooth layer over existing pavement. By doing this early in the pavement’s life-cycle, you can cost-effectively extend the life of the road up to seven years or more.

The main difference between slurry seal and micro surfacing is that slurry seal uses a standard asphalt emulsion which requires evaporation to occur and sets in several hours. Micro surfacing uses a polymer-modified asphalt emulsion that produces a chemical reaction to force the moisture out and can set in less than an hour allowing traffic to return quickly. Slurry seal is typically used on residential streets and parking lots, while micro surfacing is applicable for all roads, including interstate highways.

The EMCAD System Adds to the Bottom Line

EMCADS stands for Electronic Mix Control and Diagnostic System. EMCADS controls the mix by providing an electronic link between the aggregate delivery belt and all other mix materials (emulsion, mineral filler, water and additive) that monitors and adjusts systems to keep the mixture in the desired design.

Bergkamp’s EMCAD System helps manage material costs, and provides owners the information needed to calculate profits more accurately. The system simplifies calibration—reducing the amount of time it takes to prepare the paver. And since there are no graphs to read, less experienced operators can also perform this function.

When paving, the production rate can be adjusted with one dial, making it more efficient and reducing material waste. The amount of material being used is monitored throughout the day, and can be printed to help calculate material costs for each part of the job, or the entire job.

The end result is a more efficient and cost-effective slurry seal and micro surfacing paving crew. Give us a call today to see how the M310 or M1E can increase the earning potential of your operation with the EMCAD System.
