Since a Falcon is engineered to have even hopper temperatures, every model is built standard with an air-jacketed hopper. Falcon also builds an oil-jacketed model for those that prefer to heat asphalt via heat transfer oil instead of air. The oil-jacketed hopper is quadruple wall construction with with seal welded inner walls. Since heat transfer oil expands when heated, there is an oil expansion tank above the hopper. With a 24-hour timer option, the hopper oil can be preheated to hold hot mix or warm cold patch prior to the work shift.
Like all Falcon models, a full line of options is available at the time of purchase or aftermarket.
Note: An air-jacketed unit is recommended for an asphalt recycling program.
