Small potholes (basketball-sized or less)? Asphalt Seams? Drainage repairs? Alligator cracking? You don't need to replace the asphalt - you can reheat and rejuvenate it! Oil spots eating away at your asphalt surface? Burn them off with the infrared heater and you'll preserve pavement and improve the look, too!
Safely regulate your heat.
Repair 4 sq. feet on under 15 minutes.
No need for large quantities of asphalt to repair small areas. Simply heat, rake, compact, and go.
How does it work?
The RY2X2 Infrared Asphalt Heater is easy to use: simply place it over the distressed asphalt point, light the self-contained burner, and in as little as five to 10 minutes, this heater will have the asphalt brought back to its original mixing temperature. Remove the machine, rake the asphalt into place, compact the asphalt with a vibrating plate or plate compactor, and you're all done!
In the past, you'd have to drive to the asphalt plant, buy new asphalt, dig up the old asphalt, replace it, and then figure out where to dispose of the old asphalt . . . all of those steps are eliminated now! Just wheel it into place, light it, and you're halfway done! The unit weighs just 90lbs and features heat-shielded caster wheels, so you can operate it with just one person - no crew needed to move it.
This unit is built to last: the frame is 11 gauge steel, and the stainless steel and ceramic heater cartridge has an average lifespan of 1,500 hours.
The RY2X2 uses actual infrared heating (not blue flame heating) through a ceramic mesh cartridge. This provides the best heat distribution of any heater in its class.
Like all RynoWorx products, this unit puts safety first. No open torch flame that can blow out or leak propane on the job. And the regulator with a built-in pressure gauge means you always know how much fuel is flowing so you can turn the heater temperature up or down.
How can you make money with this? Watch Judd Burdon live at National Pavement Expo giving you the scoop! Expect your operating costs to be as little as $1.50 an hour - way lower than other units on the market today.
How long can a full propane tank last if I will use my RY2X2 the whole day?
A 20 lb. propane cylinder should last on average between 7 and 11 hours depending on the operating pressure and ambient conditions.
HOW much BTU heat in this product?
The RY2x2 Heater has a 75,000 BTU/hr Infrared burner.
Does the RY2X2 use actual infrared or blue flame?
The RY2X2 infrared heater uses actual infrared through a ceramic mesh cartridge. It provides the best heat distribution of any heater in its class.
Can you use it to heat an area that has previous crack filler (rubber) in it? Can you use it to heat an area that has previous cold patch filling the hole/crack?
Yes. You can use the RY2X2 Infrared Asphalt Heater to any previously filled cracks - whether with the hot pour rubberized crack filler or with the cold patch.
Q Interested in your infrared pothole machine. How does it work if I have an area bigger than 2 feet? Do you simply work in 2foot sections? Is there a recommended overlap? How high does old asphalt need to be to obtain a flush surface after tamping?
A Yes, if you have areas that are larger than 4 sq ft you would have to do multiple presses. Each press takes about 7 minutes and you can overlap 4 inches on each press. You generally add new asphalt or milling and hold it a half-inch higher than the...
