What is the alternative to gas?
ITE has developed a series of electrically powered equipment comprising hot melt boilers, hot air torch and dryer with the aim of replacing some of the oldest equipment used on construction sites today.
Epot - electrically heated compound boiler - for melting bituminous based compounds.
Etorch - electrically powered torch with detail nozzles - for sealing laps and detail work. The Etorch also has drying function.
Ebucket - electrically insulated bucket - for keeping compound at temperature when melted.
The concept uses 3-phase power to drive the Epot and Etorch.
Our Ebucket is 110v.
Successful field trials with our Epots, carried out in conjunction with main contractors, have resulted in impressive endorsements for these products.
The benefits of using electricity instead of LPG speak for themselves:-
No LPG purchases
No gas transportation
No logistical issues such as gas storage and gas trolleys
No protracted gas related site protocols to consider
Fire and burn risks drastically reduced
Less labour involved in the management of the equipment
Less damage to integrity of materials due to constant and controlled temperature
