The 4qt Asphalt Dispenser Melting Pot has an 880 Watt heating element. The footprint is 10x15in (254x381mm) and maximum height is 18in (457mm). Maximum clearance below dispensing valve is about 7in (178mm).
This timesaving melting pot simplifies dispensing of asphalt binder for laboratory testing and mix-design applications. it is useful for dispensing waxes, adhesives, and other compounds. A heavy pipe single-column support mounts easily to a bench top. Height and angle are quickly adjusted with set screws on the sliding boss attached to the column. A manual dispensing lever operates a needle valve that is adjusted to obtain desired flow rate. The dial thermostat controls heating range from 150°-550°F (66°-288°C).
The heavy painted-steel housing is insulated from the cast-aluminum inner pot by thick thermal insulation. Blanket-type heating element uniformly heats the pot across the bottom and for 75% of the wall height. An aluminum cover is provided to retain heat and control fumes.
