Paving Operations -- Continued.
During paving operations, the During PMCS operations are performed. Refer to WP 0013.
The amount of paving material distributed by the BMPM can be controlled automatically or manually. In automatic
mode, the sonic auger sensors keep the height of distributed paving material constant, regardless of the forward
speed of the BMPM. Sound waves are used to measure material height and adjust the speed of the conveyer and
augers to maintain this constant paving height.
When running under manual control, the height of the paving material can be controlled in several ways: by
adjusting the position of the auger cut-off shoes, by adjusting the speed of the conveyor, by adjusting the speed of
the augers, by adjusting the material thickness using the flight screws, or by adjusting the forward movement of
When a paving operation is complete, daily lubrication and After PMCS operations are performed. Refer to WP
0013 and LO 5-3895-385-13.
