The HDE Rubber Tire Roller Heater was developed to prevent pick-up during rolling operations. The tires are heated with HDE patented infrared heaters. To eliminate overheating of the tires the system monitors the temperature of the front and rear tires using an infrared sensor that is displayed in the operator control console.The system is programmed to start up and shut down at a pre-set temperature. There is a secondary alarm that will notify the operator if the tires become too hot or cold. The ideal operating temperatures are between 95 degrees C and 115 degrees C. Each heater has its own ignition system with a safeguard that will automatically shut down the system in the event that the heater goes out or does not ignite. An optional third infrared sensor will measures the temperature of the asphalt mat and can provide feedback to the operator for effective compaction time and for documentation
