Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) October 24, 2011
Phoenix Industries, a leading equipment and technology provider for the paving industry, has announced they will be exhibiting their eco-friendly PelletPATCH™ material at two up-coming trade expos. The Southeastern Asphalt User Producer Group conference in Savannah, Georgia and the New Jersey State League of Municipalities (NJSLOM ) conference in Atlantic City, both expos run from November 14th to the 17th.
This revolutionary new patented material is a matrix of asphalt cement, crumb rubber made from recycled waste tires and other modifiers produced in a pelleted free-flowing form that is transported and stored at ambient temperature until needed for use. This environmentally friendly design saves huge amounts of energy normally expended to keep asphalt cement hot around the clock. The unique form of this material lets pothole patching and RAP units have a safe and easy way to carry a modified asphalt binder.
To complement the introduction of the PelletPATCH material, Phoenix Industries will also be exhibiting their Model MP 300 mobile pothole patching unit at the NJSLOM conference. This is a truck or trailer assembly that is designed to fit a standard cab & chassis type truck. The MP 300 is a PLC controlled, self contained unit supplied with a diesel generator, air compressor, heated tack tank, PelletPATCH feeder and a complete aggregate feed, drying and mixing system. Everything a road agency or contractor needs to produce true modified hot mix asphalt right at a repair site.
Kelly Sockwell, Director of Operations for Phoenix Industries stated: "We are very excited to be exhibiting at both of these major expos. We know state and local budgets are tight and road maintenance agencies are being required to do more with less, so we feel the increased efficiency our system offers for pothole repairs will be well received. They will be quick to see the benefits of being able to produce modified hot mix asphalt on demand, right at the repair site, 365 days a year, even in the middle of winter so no more need to use a temporary cold patch."
With these latest environmental friendly introductions, Phoenix Industries is continuing as a leading innovator for providing solutions for the fast growing green movement in the road construction industry.
