The patent-pending, most-talked-about innovation in asphalt crack sealer melter design is now available right here at Action Seal! The RY10 Pro rethinks the melter/applicator from a contractor's perspective and brings improved safety, reliability and cost savings to the machine. It's the biggest innovation in melters in 20 years!
Flame-out sensor means you and your crew are always safe.
FASTER: Melts crackfiller 50% faster than traditional torch-fired melters.
TOUGHER: Steel design means virtually no maintenance.
A flame-out sensor turns off fuel flow as soon as your melter blows out - no wasted fuel, and no dangerous propane build-up. The sealed burner is equipped with a CSA / UL approved flameout sensor which detects flameouts commonly caused by wind and prevents fuel from flowing to the burner. And this machine is fully equipped with CSA/UL approved regulator to provide precise control over fuel flow to the kettle.
The direct-fire round burner prevents heat from melting crackfill unevenly - no more crystallisation. And because the heat is spread more evenly, the machine melts crackfill faster and uses less fuel to do it! Save money and save time!
On-the-fly handlebar agitation means you can mix hot pour while you're walking - no need to stop and open the lid. The time savings and convenience factor really make your job easier.
It's good to clean it out completely after 5 uses; otherwise there is a possibility of charring rubber in areas where there may be multiple layers of rubber built up.
To clean it, heat it up and scrape it out with a scraper on a broom handle. Then start fresh with a brand new box of crackfill.
How long can I keep unopened crack sealant?
Our crack filler has a shelf life of 10 years unopened. It's why so many of our customers choose to take advantage our half-pallet and pallet offerings: the savings are so high it is worth storing them until you need them. It can be stored outside; just cover it with weather-resistant pallet wrap and keep it out of the sun.
I have left over tar in my machine. Is it okay to leave it there and reheat it at a later time?
Absolutely! You just have to heat it up again when you are ready to use it.
How soon can you drive on newly filled cracks?
As soon as the crackfiller comes down to ambient temperature - sometimes as soon as 30-45 minutes when it is hot, and more quickly in cooler temperatures. Test with a stick: if you push down on the crackfiller and the crackfill doesn't tack to the stick, you're good to drive on it.
How do I stop the RY10 Pro from getting hotter once the temp hits 380°F (193.33°C)?
You should turn the regulator down. We do not recommend leaving the crackfill material on high heat for long periods of time. The crackfill can be cooled and reheated as needed, but prolonged heating can damage it and disrupt its bonding capability
What does it weigh?
It weighs 159 lbs empty and 281.5 lbs when at full capacity.
How do you assemble the RY10 Pro or RY10 Elite?
This video shows you step by step how to assemble the RY10 Pro or RY10 Elite Crackfill Melter Applicator.
What is a thermocouple? How do I replace it?
Thermocouple is responsible for shutting off the propane to a burner in the unlikely event of a flame out. This prevents unburned gas from flooding into the combustion chamber or a small smart might cause an explosion. It is an essential part of keeping you safe while working. Watch the instructional video on how to re-seat the thermocouple.
When melting the rubberized crack filler, does the whole block with plastic wrapper go into the melter kettle?
Yes, you can put the whole block into the melter kettle along with the plastic cling film. Don't worry because including and melting the plastic film is 100% safe. Plus, it will not affect the adhesion or the performance of the rubberized crack filler.
How do I clean the rubber off the RY10's shoe and wheels?
Use the RY10's torch to soften the crack fill on the shoe and wheels. You can then use a scraper (you can use a flathead screwdriver for this) to remove the softened rubber.
The asphalt comes out too quickly even by barely touching the release valve, is there something I can do to get the flow slower, or the release less touchy?
To make it a little easier to control the flow of the crackfill:
Lower the temperature of the kettle and it will cause the rubber to flow more slowly.
Lengthen the control arm for the valve by adjusting the turnbuckle. That way, you will be able to have the handle closer to the handlebars, and your hand will be more closed, which should provide more control for the valve operation.
