Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR INCORPORATING USED AND EXTRACTED INFILL INTO THE SUBSURFACE OF A NEWLY INSTALLED FIELD
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL D'INCORPORATION DE REMBLAI UTILISÉ ET EXTRAIT DANS LA SUBSURFACE D'UN CHAMP NOUVELLEMENT INSTALLÉ
Abstract:
(EN) Particulate infill from a worn down infilled artificial turf, particularly a sand/rubber mixture which includes crumb rubber from vehicle tires, is extracted from a prior field and then thereafter incorporated into the top surf ace of the compacted base at the same site, thereby to assure better drainage conditions in the compacted base for the subsequently installed field. The extracted and incorporated infill helps to maintain open drainage channels throughout the top of the compacted base, particularly in areas where limestone is prevalent. Otherwise, the limestone "fines" are susceptible to compacting and creating a cement-like crust at the top of the base. An existing infill extractor/collector device is modified to operate in a second mode, so that instead of merely performing the conventional bagging of the already-used infill, the already-used infill is laterally diverted back on to the base at the same site, and thereafter, distributed and tilled into the base.
(FR) Selon l'invention, un remblai particulaire provenant d'un gazon artificiel remblayé usé, en particulier un mélange de sable et de caoutchouc qui comprend des granulés de caoutchouc provenant de pneumatiques de véhicule, est extrait d'un champ précédent puis incorporé dans la surface supérieure de la base compactée sur le même site, ce qui assure de meilleures conditions de drainage dans la base compactée pour le champ installé ultérieurement. Le remblai extrait et incorporé contribue à maintenir des canaux de drainage ouverts dans toute la partie supérieure de la base compactée, en particulier dans des zones où les roches calcaires sont prévalentes. Sinon les « fines » de calcaire sont susceptibles de se compacter et de créer une croûte ressemblant à du ciment sur le dessus de la base. Un dispositif extracteur/collecteur de remblai existant est modifié pour fonctionner dans un deuxième mode, de sorte qu'au lieu de réaliser uniquement la mise en sacs classique du remblai déjà utilisé, le remblai déjà utilisé est dévié latéralement et renvoyé sur la base du même site, puis distribué et labouré dans la base.
