The HDE Asphalt Hot Box Reclaimer is capable of both maintaining the temperature of virgin asphalt and reheating cold material to workable temperature. The HDE Asphalt Hot Box Reclaimer can be used 365 days a year whether it is using material from the local asphalt plant or recycling left- over material to create a hot patching material in the middle of the winter. Reheating left over materials eliminates the need of disposal and can drastically reduce the amount of cold patch material needed to repair problem areas. The reheating process can take 8-12 hours depending on the ambient temperatures and the amount of asphalt that is being heated. By using a digital temperature controller we are able to heat the asphalt safely until it has reached the desired temperature. The controller prevents any burning of the asphalt by turning the heaters of at a preset temperature (i.e. 300°F ).
The HDE hot box reclaimer will maintain proper working temperature of the asphalt for up to 48 hours. The hopper is heated by two 25,000 BTU infrared heaters. The temperature of the hopper is monitered by a 24 volt digital temperature controller that will turn the power the ignition systems as it cals for heat. The automatic spark ignition has a built in safety that will shut the gas off if the flame goes out.
The HDE infrared heaters allow for uniform heat without overheating the asphalt. Ventalation in the box allows the hot air to move evenly around the box. Vents inside the hopper allow hot air from the heating chamber to heat the top portion of the hopper.
The dual hopper allows for better heat distribution when being used as a hot box and assists in the reclaiming of cold asphalt.
The loading doors open to form a chute for easy loading of virgin hot mix at the plant of chunks of cold asphalt for reclaiming. Unloading doors lock in the up position to prevent accidental closing during the unloading. The sloped dual hopper allows easy removal of hot mix.
All controls are mounted NEMA 12 rated enclosure to ensure maximum protection against the elements.
Equipped with a digital temperature controller we are able to heat the asphalt safely until it has reached the desired temperature. The controller prevents any burning of the asphalt by turning the heaters of at a pre-set temperature (i.e. 300°F).
Heating Chamber | details coming soon.
The heat is fuelled by one 100lb vapor drawn LPG tank with a quick fill multi-valve. This eliminates the need to switch tanks and allows the operator to fill up at any propane depot. A 2 ton hot box reclaimer will operate for up to 3 days before requiring a re-fill.
All HDE trailers are equipped with rubber torsion axles.
The double hopper allows for more efficient heat distribution and easy unloading.
