The Aqua-Groover ® together with the process for specific milling and grooving of asphalt, concrete and other road surfaces offers enormous potential in the application in road construction and maintenance for the main purpose of increasing traffic safety on motorways, federal, state and municipal roads as well as in the airport taxiway area.
Significant reduction in the risk of aquaplaning and the resulting risk of accidents due to significantly improved water drainage and thus drainage of the treated areas
Generally less environmental impact due to special milling method and system (lane-specific and not lane-specific) and associated significant reduction of closure times
High-quality and equivalent applicability for all road surfaces regardless of their type (asphalt, concrete, other materials), age and general condition.
Can be used on different construction sites at short notice due to the mobility provided by the automated truck body compared to the high transport, installation and adjustment costs of other systems.
Aquaplaning is when excess water builds up on the road surface and the resulting film of water prevents contact between the vehicle's tyres and the road. This circumstance of so-called "floating up" leads to a reduced steering and braking ability and, in extreme cases, to a total loss of control over the vehicle. Aquaplaning is a frequent cause of accidents and accordingly contributes to an increased road safety risk. Road builders, operators and maintainers around the world are constantly confronted with this problem.
The innovative process system was developed to avoid this problem. Essentially, a new type of groove system, accurate to the millimetre, is milled into the roadway at neuralgic problem areas of roadways - especially in the area of low-drainage zones or at transverse slope transitions - by means of a milling machine mounted on a truck and electronically controllable, which is equipped with a special laser measuring and levelling system. At the same time as the milling process, the resulting milling residues are sucked off into a container that is also mounted on the truck.
