Cold Recycling Application Course

Twice a year Loudon International assist Wirtgen with training on the cold recycling application process at the Wirtgen South Africa office in Johannesburg. Delegates from various entities (contractors, clients and academic institutions) are invited to the two day training course held in March and November.

Unlike conventional courses, the cold recycling application course not only consists of slideshows and lectures. This course actively involves the delegates by incorporating a practical element. Over a two day period the delegates are introduced to the basic principals of cold recycling, BSM technology, recycling application methods, material behavior and quality control. The delegates also get the opportunity to operate a smoothdrum roller, a padfoot roller, a pnuematic tyred roller and a Wirtgen WR cold recycler. They are also challenged with rehabilitating 80m of roadway using the experience they learnt during this course.

The goal of this training is to promote the BSM technology and ensure that those who use the technology understand not only the process and the benefits of the technology, but also the consequences when the technology is incorrectly applied.
