At the beginning of the 2017 Road Construction Season Peckham Materials invited the Greene County Highway Superintendents to take a tour of our hot mix asphalt and quarry operation in Catskill, New York. We also had representatives from Reclamation, LLC to answer questions about our full depth reclamation process. The Highway Superintendents took advantage of the opportunity to see the plant and to speak directly with the operation managers. This gave us the opportunity to learn the unique needs of each of our Greene County municipal customers.
John Giorgianni, plant manager, explained the new crusher, the HP-500 secondary crusher which has increased our crushing plant capacity significantly. Robbie Carl, Equipment Operator from Reclamation, explained the Full Depth Reclamation (FDR) process. After Robbie explained the process, Charlie Goss performed a demonstration of the process using the CAT RM-500B Reclaimer. The FDR stabilization process was explained while the Highway Superintendents observed the process in motion and took the opportunity to ask questions.
Matt Rice, who has operated our Hot Mix Asphalt plant for over 30 years, had the opportunity to meet with the Greene County Highway Superintendents and give them a hands-on showing of the control room. The batching process was explained and they watched the mixing of a 4 ton batch of Type 3 Binder . This particular portion of the tour generated many questions and concluded the tour. The tour was considered a success by all that attended. All are welcome to come see this modern facility operated. Thank you to the Greene County Highway Superintendents for a job well done and the opportunity to meet your needs.
