Flameless patcher cuts material waste
Bergkamp Inc. offers the FP5 Flameless Pothole Patcher which drastically reduces material waste with its insulated 5.1 cubic yard electric-heated hopper that keeps asphalt at a constant temperature and pliable for an extended period of time. Potholes repaired using the FP5 have an increased life over the "throw and roll" method. The damaged area is removed and squared off using the pavement breaker. The air and tack wand blows out any remaining debris and applies the tack coating which helps bind the new asphalt to the existing pavement. The material chute delivers the fresh hot asphalt to the prepared area and the compactor then consolidates the material evenly with the existing pavement. The material chute, spoils bins and tools can be easily accessed from the back or curb side. The FP5 was the first flameless pothole patcher on the market. Its electric heat system, powered by an onboard hydraulic-powered AC generator, provides more consistent heat to the material in the hopper.
