Specifications of RD-1200

The Road Dryer RD-1200 is a portable self-contained system designed to be towed behind a truck, broom or tractor for the purpose of drying and heating the pavement's surface.

The power and heat for the machine are provided through the burning of #2 Diesel fuel drawn from the on board 100 gallon (371 liter) Diesel storage tank by the 85 HP Kubota Diesel engine and direct spark ignited 2.5 mm btu/hr burner system. Air temperature control and combustion safety are provided by the electronics package which monitors the combustion of the fuel to assure that the pavement is not overheated or contaminated with un-burned fuel.
