www.concreteproducts.com February 2019 • 41 COVER STORY CAMBRIDGE PAVERS Shown from wet and dry sides (top and bottom) the new South Amboy plant is a bold statement on how far Cam- bridge Pavers has come since launching with a multilay- er style machine. It operates on a 24/7 schedule and is equipped to minimize or eliminate any cycle disruption in the Tiger PS-1000 machine due to product and pallet han- dling from kiln transfer to relay of cubes to outdoor storage. Key to production flow are a 2,100-pallet accumulator and three inline splitters. In addition to the Tiger machinery, Pathfinder Systems de- livered a CureTec Allcure Accelerated Concrete Curing System with Rotho racks. The Allcure is engineered to serve an ex- pansive kiln with two heating units and maintain a uniform curing regime in each chamber. The new kiln at the South Amboy plant has 6,048-pallet capacity in 24 chambers, each with 14 tiers bearing pallets 18 deep. The dual finger car operates with first in first out mode.
