The Epoxy HOG

March 4, 2022

HOG Technologies has continued to innovate in the pavement marking industry. After their revolutionary Thermo HOG longline striping struck hit the market, they looked to expand their product offerings beyond thermoplastic.

By applying their same innovative technology, they have branched into the plural components with their brand-new Epoxy HOG, but how is the Epoxy HOG different?

First off, the Epoxy HOG uses tight temperature control with just one glycol pump, not four to six that you would find on competitive trucks. In addition, it uses just one 12v burner and not three or four Wavastos. It also uses HOG Speed Control with no modification to the truck’s driveline.

The Epoxy HOG has great extremity heat with no glycol-jacketed lines and no nozzle restriction in the return lines. Because of this, there is never a risk of a contaminated glycol circuit. 

HOG’s air-operated pumps provide an incredibly simple pumping system with no hydraulics.  The in-line HOG Pumps are far easier to access for maintenance. The HOG Pump is about 75% smaller and 75% lighter than other competitive pumps on the market and were built to specifically pump plural components. Air also adds a layer of safety protection as pressures cannot exceed hose ratings.

All aluminum HOG Pumps provide loading and recirculation which ensures your high-pressure pumps are mostly used for spraying lines on the road and not for the heating of that material. HOG Charge Pumps feed the high-pressure pumps with consistent inlet pressure regardless of tank levels.

The Epoxy HOG uses all stainless steel material tanks and heat exchangers with no interior moving components. 

All of these innovations come together in one brand-new truck that looks to do what its thermoplastic version did: redefine the way epoxy trucks heat, pump, and lay material by providing excellent results at peak efficiency. The Epoxy HOG along with all of HOG Technologies’ other products are built and innovated with three goals in mind for their customers: to maximize productivity, minimize costs, and optimize results.

Needless to say, with the results produced so far, the Epoxy HOG looks to do just that!
