Crack-sealing melter/ applicator

With an oil-jacketed tank and recirculation feature, the Matrix 1500 melter/ applicator provides quick heat-up and even sealant temperatures. The 150-gallon machine offers user-friendly digital controls, which permit the user to start the 22-hp engine and step away while it warms up. The electronic ignition burner is diesel-fired, with an angled burner chamber providing 250,000 BTU. In addition, a direct-drive agitator in the tank helps maintain temperature and prevents scalding.

Tandem vibratory roller

Powered by a 33.8-hp, three-cylinder diesel engine, the BW120AD-4 has an operating weight of 5732 pounds and drum width of 47.2 inches. Maximum centrifugal force is 10,125 pounds, 6% more than the previous model. Choose from two vibration frequencies—3300 and 4200 vpm—for improved compaction on a range of materials. Maximum working speed in high-frequency mode is 4 mph. Other features include a 10.6-gallon fuel tank, 58.1-gallon water tank, standard crab-walk capability, and bolt-on oscillating articulation joint. BOMAG Americas. www.bomag-americas.com..

Infrared asphalt recycler

The KM 4-48 infrared asphalt recycler comes in a folding trailer design. Four independent heating zones allow the operator to recycle areas of 8 to 48 square feet at a time. Its four swivel casters allow a high degree of maneuverability in working position—simply fold the trailer unit out and position it over the area to be reheated. The infrared technology lets the user warm asphalt without destroying the pavement's physical properties. Keizer-Morris International Inc. www.kminfrared.com..

High-temperature filter

ThermoPleat filter elements are designed to withstand the high temperatures in asphalt plant baghouses. They offer up to three times more filtration area than traditional bags, lower operating differential pressure, increase total air flow, reduce installation time, and require less compressed air to clean.
