  • Companies executing asphalt road repairs

Beside the unique FT3 device and container solution, we offer our customers the product - Microwave furnace for mixture heating.

MICROWAVE FURNACE

FUTTEC microwave furnace is intended for asphalt mixture heating by means of the microwave technology, which ensures a uniform heating through of the whole amount of the inserted material without local overheating and related asphalt binder degradation.

Thanks to the technology used, material blending is not necessary, and, therefore suitable asphalt mixture may be inserted, prior to its chilling out, in the form of lumps, blocks or bagged mixture in the pre-coated asphalt mixture production plant for the purpose of a specific repair.

While using 3D inserts or bagged mixtures, it will be possible to heat simultaneously the required amount of various mixtures, e.g. if the pothole is deep and the surface load and wearing course of the roadway is impaired.

The control of the asphalt mixture heating process is ensured using the PLC control system, which provides the correct startup of the microwave radiator and also monitors the heating time, which is defined by the amount of the heated material so that the technological temperature of 120–140°C for asphalt surface patching is reached.

Thanks to its parameters, the FUTTEC microwave furnace is ideal for all year-round minor repairs of asphalt surfaces (potholes) using any asphalt mixture (ACO, SMA, including modified mixtures), namely even in winter period.

It may be used within the FUTTEC system combined with the asphalt surface heating by means of FT3 device, but also independently, when it is necessary to ensure solely the power energy supply including the portable power supply unit option with 230 V outlet, with a rated power starting from 4 kW.

To prepare the required amount of asphalt mixture in time, the heating may be used also, while shifting between individual repairs of asphalt roadways.
