Fusion hot air blowing system
A Honda Gasoline power unit provides continuous heat of 125 degree Celsius @ 900CFM max through a manually controlled nozzle. The Fusion system is fully portable; at 73”L x 42”W it is small enough that it fits in the back of most pickup trucks, and is a perfect fit in the Tropos Able unit.
The Fusion was designed to heat asphalt for pothole repair year round. It is a VERY effective tool that should be used to prepare for cold mix pothole repairs during the winter. The consistent warm temperature provided by the Fusion efficiently evaporates any moisture and heats the asphalt without causing any damage. This is an improvement to using a torch which can damage surrounding asphalt and reduce a pothole’s effectiveness. Municipalities can effectively cold-mix patch all winter with this unit. Other applications include:
- Melting of Snow and Ice on sidewalks, in front of Businesses or Public Buildings without the use of Salt/Sand, improving safety for the public
- Melting Ice in Frozen Catch Basins
- Thawing Water Valves
- Line Painting Preparation
- Temporary Shelter Heating – the heated air is not mixed with the exhaust
