Improvements on the most popular Garlock Kettle result in higher asphalt production and improved operator safety. The double-burner flue with quarter-inch thick steel tubing provides maximum heat transfer and comes with a two-year limited warranty. Torsion axle technology provides superior trailering stability and creates more heating surface within the kettle vat. For added safety in road transport, electric brakes are standard.
Genesis Kettles maximize heat retention by insulating all sides and the bottom of the tank with a full 2 1/2 inches of 1,000 degree insulation, keeping the heat centered on the material and creating a tremendous “R” value of 11.5. Surrounded by this shield of insulation, Genesis Kettles can cut fuel costs and melt more asphalt with less LP gas.
All Genesis Kettles feature a standard 60 gallon per minute flange pump which delivers a tighter pump end clearance between the rotor and end plate, allowing for pumping heights of close to 200 feet versus 125 feet on conventional deck mounted pumps. The flange mounted pump system also allows you to perform quick pump maintenance, as all vital components are accessible from the outside of the kettle. This model comes without the ATECS temperature control system.
