IWS seeks to expand rail services at Apex Landfill in Ohio

Several various kinds of equipment made by the Windhagen, Germany-based Wirtgen Group are serving to to put together a landfill in Germany that may maintain contaminated soils and building and demolition waste.

Wirtgen says its equipment has processed almost 53,000 tons of a clay-sand combination soil as a part of the method to construct a brand new 25,000-square meter (270,000-square-foot) extension to an current landfill.

At the positioning in the German state of Hesse, a “practice” of Wirtgen Group machines, comprising tractor-towed stabilizers, soil compactors, asphalt pavers and John Deere motor graders, are collaborating in the venture.

The web site was cut up up into 13 separate strips for the development of the 360 yards by 87 yards landfill liner. A layer of crushed limestone hardcore adopted by 4 layers of clay had to be positioned on every of the strips and successively checked for impermeability. Following this, the liner was completed by paving two layers of a specifically formulated landfill asphalt combine, in accordance to Wirtgen.

“The core aspect of the landfill liner is the 4 layers of clay,” says the corporate. The materials, a combination of clay and sand, was trucked to the landfill venture from an extraction web site about 30 miles away. Adds the corporate, “As the scheduled placement of 1,200 tons of clay-sand combination per day might solely happen in dry climate, the reliability, readiness, high quality and efficiency of the tools deployed all performed a decisive position.”

Comments Michael Huthwelker from Wachenfeld, lead contractor on the venture, “We’ve had nothing however optimistic expertise with Wirtgen Group machines for a few years. On difficult jobs like this, it’s additionally an important benefit that we get the machines and the service from the identical individuals,”

After the fabric was unloaded on the positioning, it was unfold by a dozer and a John Deere 622GP motor grader, which had been then adopted by a Wirtgen WS 250 tractor-towed stabilizer. Because of the aeration of the clay by the milling and mixing rotor of the WS 250, the bottom wanted no additional enchancment by pre-spreading with lime or cement, says Wirtgen Group.

After that step, a Hamm 3414 HT P (padfoot) soil compactor compacted the freshly homogenized clay layer. It enlarged the floor space with its padfoot drum to speed up the evaporation of the moisture contained in the clay.

The John Deere motor grader then took over and leveled the strip. After an acceptable pause for drying, a Hamm H 13i compactor with a clean drum compacted the layers. The machine practice repeated that sequence of earthworks for every of the 4 clay layers. In all, the practice processed 52,800 tons of the clay-sand combination.

Another side of landfill constructing initiatives is the development of leachate drainage methods to reduce threats to the setting. At the landfill web site in Hesse, the leachate drainage system consists of a large asphalt block. A Vögele SUPER 1800-2 paver with a set width Vögele screed positioned an asphalt package deal in six layers with an general thickness of 14 inches at the middle of the extension space. The run-off channel for the leachate was then milled into the asphalt block.

A Vögele SUPER 1800-3i paver with an AB 500 extending screed was additionally in use on the positioning for the next paving of a number of layers of a formulated landfill asphalt combine positioned over the clay package deal.

Thanks to the impermeable liner, says Wirtgen, the landfill is now “ideally outfitted for an environmentally pleasant future with no leakage of dangerous leachate.”
