Description

In-Place infrared asphalt recycling heaters are one of the most efficient and permanent ways of repairing cracks, alligator cracks, dips and bird baths in asphalt roads or parking lots. Chances are, you already know this and that's why you're looking at our BIG A KM 4-40. What you get with this in-place infrared recycler heater is a fantastic 40 sq ft of coverage, allowing you to heat almost twice as much area as our BIG A KM 2-18X. In addition, this unit is designed as a unique pull-behind trailer unit weighing in at only 810 lbs so you can pull it with even the most modest of pickup trucks.

Purpose

The main purpose of using an in-place infrared asphalt recycling heater, is to recycle existing asphalt without cutting out the old, by raising it to the temperature that is required for proper hot mix asphalt. (usually around 350º F)

By raising the temperature of the existing asphalt and softening the existing binder, it allows the old asphalt to be re-used, rejuvenated and mixed with new patch to creates a "like new" repairs, without the overhead of cutting out the entire asphalt section and filling it back in with all new hot asphalt patch. In reality, if you have an infrared asphalt heater, the only time a full cut and replacement is necessary is when the sub-grade needs fixing. Why go to the trouble of cutting and removing the old when you can simply just re-use it in place?

Benefit

The benefit to owning a BIG A KM 4-40 In-Place Infrared Asphalt Recycling Heater is the unique trailer design that folds up and allows you to transport it with a regular pick-up truck. Throw a hot box reclaimer ready with hot mix asphalt in the bed of the pickup truck and you ready to do some serious asphalt patch work.

Costing several thousand less than our larger 48 sq ft model, this 40 sq ft in-place infrared recycling heater is perfect for city maintenance and contracting professionals on a very strict budget who need something larger or more convenient than a 22 sq ft model.

Usage

Using a portable infrared asphalt heater isn't hard, but does require steps to ensure the right work is performed.

  1. Heat the existing asphalt
  2. Scarify the existing asphalt
  3. Add rejuvenator asphalt oils
  4. Add new hot asphalt material
  5. Mix everything together
  6. Level the asphalt
  7. Compact with a vibratory machine or roller
  8. Move to the next section

Heat Cycling Technology

The BIG A KM 2-18X heating is controlled by an automatic timed on/off heating cycle, setup to be 53 seconds on and 10 seconds off. This maintains proper temperature within the heating elements and allows a more efficient use of fuel consumption. By alternating the heating cycles on this portable infrared asphalt heater, it minimizes the chance of burning the asphalt. In addition, this unit is built with a one shot timer that will turn off after 10 minutes of heating to eliminate the potential cooking or overheating of the asphalt.
