Using the high volume blower, the Jetpatcher© easily blows all loose debris and even water from the pothole; cleaning it, and preparing the hole for an effective patch.
The Jetpatcher™ now coats the pothole with an asphalt emulsion which seals the pothole and prevents further damage from occurring, due to moisture.
The remote control switch, on the conveyor, is now activated by the operator to put aggregate into the jet air stream. As the aggregate passes through the nozzle, it is coated with emulsion and sprayed into the hole or broken road edge. The Jetpatcher™ asphalt mix is sprayed at speeds of up to 100 kilometers per hour, compaction from the bottom up is achieved; denser than rolled asphalt.
The wet top of the repaired area can now be protected from traffic flow, using either dry aggregate sprayed from the Jetpatcher™, or, for inner city work, (where loose chip is a potential hazard), sand from optional sand hopper. The hopper can be built into the Jetpatcher™ unit.
FASTER, MORE COST-EFFECTIVE
The Jetpatcher™ Road Repair System has been proven to reduce costs by up to 40% when compared to traditional pothole repair methods.
At approximately half the repair time of other methods, the system can significantly reduce your pothole backlog, while minimising disruption to road users and the public.
The inherent speed and efficiency of the process ensures it uses significantly less energy than conventional alternatives.
Recurring defects are costly and time-consuming, which is why Jetpatcher™ has a ‘right first time’ philosophy.
