Description

Applying Blacktop Crack Filler Sealer is one of the most important things you can do to maintain your asphalt surface. Regular applications of Blacktop Crack Sealer will ensure that moisture, oil, and dirt does not penetrate the asphalt surface which will cause the asphalt to deteriorate. Our BIG A 15-gallon Blacktop Crack Sealer applicator machine uses any direct fire Blacktop Crack Filler material and easily applies the material in a 3-inch band by melting the material to a 400-degree temperature.

This popular crack filling machine is the larger version of our 10 and 13 gallon Blacktop Crack Filler design and is USA made. It is built tough with 14 gauge steel and 1/4" thick steel wheels. With proper care and maintenance, this crackfilling machine will last you many years.

By simply pushing this machine at walking speed on random asphalt cracks you can easily apply crack fill material to the pavement surface repairing the cracks permanently. The built-in manual hand agitation is designed to keep the material stirred and mixed so that it flows evenly out of the valve, and melt any undissolved material.

It's common for this style of melter applicator to use an in-shot burner design which can create a hotspot on the front of the kettles surface. This can also create uneven heating or slower than normal heating. The BIG A 15 gallon Blacktop Crack Sealer machine utilizes a built-in flame diverter which diverts the flame into a circular motion under the material bin and allows for very even heat distribution. It also allows for faster than normal heat-up time which gets you repairing cracks faster. If your thinking about Crack Filling as a business, or offering it as an addition to your existing business, please read How To Fill Asphalt Cracks.

With its large capacity you can stay on the job longer without refilling, one man can fill up to 6500 Lineal feet of pavement crack up to 1/2" wide and 1" deep per day. This machine is designed to use a 20-pound propane bottle (not included).

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.
