Description

Need a quality built melter for filling cracks in parking lots, streets, roads, or highways?

The A210CT is an air-jacketed, compact, and light-weight melter that is perfect for parking lots for small city or county maintenance departments who want to own their own crack sealing trailer machine, without paying the big bucks of the slightly larger alternatives.  If 200-gallon capacity isn't enough and you have the big bucks, you can upgrade to a 380 gallon or 500-gallon kettle.

Included is a 25' flexible, 110v electric heated, jacketed hose that is attached to a 360º swivel boom for full coverage around the machine and a heated applicator wand.  (Longer option hose available)

The 110v electric hose system is powered from an included gas-powered generator that is also attached to the trailer.

The A-210CT is run off of a Honda 5.5HP gas engine that powers a 1-1/2" VIKING material pump which includes the pully's, belts, and guards.

The kettle is heated using a propane burner system with an included automatic temperature control system.  The flame is sent through 4" SCH-80 stainless steel fire tubes which heat the kettle fast and will add years to the overall durability of this crack sealing trailer.

The trailer is made with heavy-duty, 4” channel steel with 14” tires/rims and includes wheel fenders, lights, 2” ball-hitch, and trailer jack.

With an overall efficiency of 78.9%, the A-210 only takes around 35 minutes to fully heat 100 gallons and can heat approximately 136 gallons per hour.

Build & Delivery Note: These systems are built from scratch upon ordering.  Please allow 5-7 weeks for build time and 7-10 business days for shipping.

Air Jacketed vs Oil Jacketed

If you've been searching for trailer mounted crack sealing machines, chances are you've run across units that are advertised as being oil-jacketed units.

The main difference between an air-jacketed kettle and an oil-jacketed kettle is the medium that is heated and transfers heat into the kettle.  Both types of melters usually are constructed as a double-wall kettle, but that doesn't always apply to air-jacketed melters.

Air-Jacketed melters heat the surrounding air which moves up through the double walls of the kettle or through flame pipes positioned below the kettle.  As the air heats up, it rises through the double wall and escapes out vent holes or a vent chimney.  The hot air as it passes through the double walls, heats up the metal which in turn, heats the rubber.  Most air-jacketed melters are heated from a fire type of heat source that is usually fueled by either propane or diesel.  Air-jacketed melters are super simple to maintain and rarely have problems with any of the heating system, outside of the burners or fuel regulators.  One downside to many air-jacketed melters is the lack of maintaining a consistent temperature.  If a unit isn't designed well and doesn't have a really good thermostat system, keeping the temp locked in can be difficult.  This is usually only a problem with inexpensive push melters or stationary melters.  That said, high-end stationary melters do sometimes come with a thermostat like the KM55 stationary crack melter or KMPP55 stationary mastic melter.

Oil-Jacketed melters, however, are sealed with a heating oil in-between the double walls.  The oil is usually heated with either a flame source or an electric heat source.  Oil-Jacketed melters take a little more time to heat up from our experience, however, they stay hot longer than air-jacketed melters.  This makes oil-jacketed a bit more fuel-efficient at the cost of maintaining the oil or dealing with potential leaks caused by age or poor overall craftsmanship.  Many oil-jacketed manufacturers refuse to sell-direct to customers and only sell through distributors because: "Customers need to know where to go if it breaks".  Oil-jacketed melters are generally more complex and requires someone with extensive knowledge on troubleshooting and fixing these types of units.  In comparison, Air-jacketed propane melters are by far the easiest to operate and maintain, making them the best overall option if you need a system that "just works".

When it comes to the crack rubber materials used, the rubber manufacturers have two types of rubbers they sell.  One is designed for direct fire melters and the other for oil-jacketed melters.  Oil-Jacketed material flows at a slightly lower temperature, but that temperature must be maintained constantly in order to keep from damaging the rubber.  Excessive heat makes the rubber go bad.  On the flip-side, direct fire rubber usually requires a higher temperature to flow, but it is extremely forgiving with temperatures.  While air-jacketed rubbers do have a max temp that will damage it, the range between flow and ruining it is a lot higher.

So, can you use either rubber in either type of machine?  Yes.  The rubber doesn't care about the type of melter it's in, it only cares about the maintained temperature.  Do we recommend swapping one for the other for a given machine?  Nope.  Stick with what you need and don't take the risk.  We have to say that to cover ourselves ;-)

Propane vs Diesel

The A-Line of crack melting trailers are made with two main fuel options: Propane or Diesel

Which should you buy?  The decision comes down to two factors.

Fuel Availability

If propane is easier to get ahold of, go with the propane.  If diesel is easier, go with diesel.  As far as fuel availability goes, it's that simple.

Complexity

If fuel is easy to get ahold of, the next decision to consider is the complexity of the system.

Propane: The propane system is very straight forward with very little that can go wrong.  Outside of needing a new burner or a few other minor items, the propane fuel system is the easiest and cheapest to maintain.

Diesel: The diesel system, in contrast, is a lot more complex of a system.  If you need diesel and don't mind knowing that there is a little more to it, then diesel is a fantastic route.  That said, there is a lot less maintenance with the A-series diesel units when compared oil-jacketed melters.
