How to Maintain Your Infrared Asphalt Repair Equipment

Infrared asphalt repair equipment is designed to need little maintenance. Like all equipment, however, it does require some attention. This article describes some of the components of infrared repair equipment and what contractors must to do keep them in top shape. There are two critical components to this equipment: an infrared heater used to resoften the pavement and an asphalt reclaimer/storage unit where new material to be used in the repair is stored and heated. Contractors should visually inspect the ceramic blankets of the heating system, the fuel lines and the electrical system to ensure that there are no leaks. Batteries will need to be checked for acid and water levels and also recharged regularly.
