Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) July 20, 2011
Phoenix Industries is pleased to announce the successful completion of their 15 state, 14,000 mile demonstration tour to introduce the PelletPATCH™ pothole patching system.
As an innovative leader in the development of equipment and products for the asphalt paving and road repair industry, Phoenix Industries has recently added another revolutionary product to its line of environmentally friendly materials. This new product, PelletPATCH is an all in one blend of high quality asphalt cement, rubber made from recycled waste tires and other special modifiers that are processed into an easy to use pelletized form that is stored and transported at ambient temperature until needed. PelletPATCH, when utilized in the Model MP 200 mobile patching unit, is designed to let an agency or contractor permanently repair small utility cuts and potholes with true, modified hot mix material right at the road repair location, even in the middle of winter in a very cost effective way. No more need to do temporary repairs with cold patch.
Kelly Sockwell, Director of Operations for Phoenix Industries stated: "With our system being so unique we thought the best way to launch it was to take it directly to the agencies that do the work. With state and local budgets so tight, road maintenance agencies are being required to do more with less, so we knew the increased efficiency our system offers for pothole repairs would be well received. During our three months on the road with our demo unit we received overwhelmingly positive feedback from agency engineers and maintenance crew personnel. They were quick to see the benefits of being able to supply hot mix asphalt on demand 365 days a year, even in the middle of winter so no more need to use cold patch."
The MP 200 mobile patch unit is a truck or trailer mounted, 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 two man crew needs to produce the hot mix material for a typical pothole repair in 5 -7 minutes.
The Director of Research & Development for Phoenix Industries, Dr. Serji Amirkhanian commented: "Besides the efficiency our patch system offers, one of the biggest benefits realized is the durability of the material. In recent independent testing we have found that hot mix produced with PelletPATCH not only performs better than other patching materials in the market, but it meets or exceeds most requirements for state highway paving for modified mixes."
By combining the unique properties of PelletPATCH material and the cutting edge technology of the MP 200 mobile patch unit, Phoenix Industries has created a cost efficient solution to road repairs for municipalities, government agencies and maintenance contractors worldwide.
