Truck-Mounted Asphalt Hot Boxes

Our truck-mounted asphalt hot boxes slide right into the bed of your truck. They excel in tight urban environments where maneuvering larger vehicles or trailers can be challenging. 

They’re ideal for maximizing the use of existing dump trucks in municipal fleets. The hydraulic loading and unloading doors make them suitable for higher trucks.

You can configure the truck-mounted hotbox with a customized sub-frame or self-dumping capability for a:

  • Hook-lift system
  • Slip-in/Roll-off system
  • Chassis-mount

Benefits of Falcon Asphalt Hot Boxes & Recyclers

Falcon hot boxes and recyclers offer a versatile and efficient asphalt repair solution. The temperature control system allows workers to keep hot mix asphalt at the right temperature for up to 72 hours and revitalize cold patch mix quickly. A dual-burner option allows these machines to recycle asphalt chunks, millings, and fresh mix adeptly. 

Running on readily available diesel fuel, these recyclers are more efficient and easier to refuel than their propane counterparts, consuming less than three gallons of fuel over an eight-hour shift. Furthermore, their design boasts a lower shoveling height than dump trucks, reducing worker fatigue and increasing unloading efficiency.

How Do Asphalt Hot Boxes & Recyclers Work?

Falcon asphalt recyclers utilize cutting-edge, patented technology to rejuvenate asphalt efficiently. The process is straightforward: apply a rejuvenator to the old asphalt, load the hopper, and then heat it at a low temperature overnight. Workers will have fresh asphalt material in the morning.

The single or dual burner technology ensures a gentle heating process that maintains the integrity of the asphalt’s oils, a critical component for quality. In contrast, other recycling methods may use a direct flame. This degrades the important oils and leads to substandard and unusable asphalt. 

The unique design of Falcon asphalt reclaimers features cross ducts, an upper burner, and high-density insulation, which distributes heat evenly and retains it effectively within the hopper.  This setup achieves an impressive 92% fuel efficiency, making the recycling process environmentally friendly and highly cost-effective.

Asphalt Dump Box & Recycler FAQs

Q: What is the purpose of a hot box for asphalt?
A:Its primary purpose is transporting and preserving hot mix asphalt from the asphalt plant to the job site. It ensures the asphalt maintains its temperature, which is essential for efficient application and optimal results.
Q: What is an asphalt recycler, and how does it work?
A: An asphalt recycler, also known as a hot box reclaimer, reheats and reuses old asphalt, transforming it into a workable mix suitable for patching roads. It works by heating the old asphalt, reducing its viscosity, and making it easier to apply and compact.
Q: What are the advantages of using an asphalt recycling machine?
A: Asphalt recyclers save money and resources by reusing old asphalt, eliminating the need to purchase new material. They also contribute to environmental sustainability by reducing waste and the demand for new raw materials.
Q: How does an asphalt spreader box maintain the temperature of the asphalt?
A: It utilizes high-density insulation and a heating system to maintain the asphalt’s temperature. The hotbox can hold the heat for extended periods, ensuring the asphalt stays at the optimal temperature for application.
Q: How can a dump box improve the efficiency of workers?
A: The hydraulic dump trailer design utilizes a lowered height and body guides. This innovative design lessens the physical burden on workers and makes unloading the asphalt easier, faster, and more efficient.
