Description

The ASD13 Asphalt Crack Melter holds 13 gallons of hot melted crackfill and will save you time and money because you can offer asphalt crack repair while your on the job site.

This Asphalt Crack Melter is a "Melting Kettle On Wheels".

This crack melter kettle design was first introduced more than twenty years ago and was used as a smaller capacity portable asphalt crack melter. Over time several additions have been added to the design to create what is today the most efficient way to fill cracks in asphalt using hot pour rubberized crackfill.

This is because this asphalt crack melter kettle design uses a tubular valve assembly that is attached to a spring loaded handle allowing the operator full control of the valve.

This system offers the latest valve assembly which allows the operator to completely stop the flow of melted asphalt crack fill material and eliminating puddles of melted material. Raising the screed completely closes the valve tube.

1/8" thick rear steel wheels are used instead of rubber wheels to allow for easy rolling and won't pick-up hot tar like a rubber wheel would, and when the wheels get crackfiller on them, simply melt it off using the torch burner which is included with the crack melter applicator.

Agitation of the hot rubberized rubber is very important because the plastic wrapper on the rubber blocks can plug the valve if not completely dissolved. Manual Agitation is standard equipment with this Asphalt Crack Melter.

This asphalt crack melter applicator will save you time by applying Hot Rubberized Melted Crack Sealer directly into the asphalt crack. All you need to do is keep it full of direct fire sealer and push it!

Our 13 gallon Asphalt Crack Melter applicator has a durable finish, and uses an "In-shot" burner design to allow for fast heat up.

Dear Brad, Thank you for sending the ASD13 hot pot and sealer, it works great. It was easier than I thought it would be and it does such a good job, that it looks like a professional company did it!

Our ASD13 crack melter applicators come complete with 6' hose, burner, POL bottle connector, regulator and thermometer. All you need is a bottle of propane and you're off and going!

We use the only the highest quality of material possible as you can tell, including the steel thermometer.

The inner and outer box are both made from 14 GA steel and will not warp, why pay more for a push melter when you can buy the "Original" and have access to replacement parts and service when you need it?

Just fill this crack melter applicator with up to thirteen gallons of asphalt crack filler and stay on the crack much longer. Our ASD13 is capable of applying and melting 6000 linear feet of 1/2" width crack, approximately 1" in depth when used in conjunction with our 30 gallon stationary melter. See our Asphalt Crack Filling guide to determine the amount of sealer required.

Why pay hundreds of dollars more for this melter applicator, buy it here and save!

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to melt rubber in a direct fire melter?

The answer to this question has a few variables that makes it difficult to give a direct answer. The one consistent answer we can give is that you can generally "begin using" the melter within 25 - 35 minutes of firing it up from a cold start.

The two biggest variables to consider are outside temperature and wind. The colder or windier it is, the longer it will take to melt rubber. The size of the melter and amount of rubber will also be factors. Just make sure you maintain the melter temperature at the recommended temperature (usually 375ºF - 400ºF) and always keep a new block of rubber on the already melted rubber to maintain best performance. Exceeding the rubbers melting temperature can burn the rubber and alter its properties. Double check your rubber instructions for proper operating temperatures.

Without going into a lot of detail about the process, it generally takes between 1 - 2.5 hours depending on melter size and volume of rubber to fully melt the blocks from a cold start. This is true on pretty much any direct fire melter regardless of brand and design. The thing to note though, is that you can most certainly use the melter before the blocks of rubber have fully melted.

How do you clean a direct fire melter?

Short Answer: You Don't - Direct fire melters generally don't need to be emptied or cleaned between use. If you're on the job and only use half of the material, simply shut the burner off and allow the remaining rubber to cool back to a solid state. The next time you need to use the melter, ignite the burner and allow the existing rubber to re-melt. On the push melters, you'll find that the wheels will build up rubber as you roll over filled cracks and this can become quite annoying. Simply grab a plumbers torch (sold at any hardware store) and burn off any rubber that has accumulated. This same method can be used anywhere on the melter where you feel it needs minor cleanup.
