Oceana Surface Solutions (OSS) is a small machine manufacturing company located in Shelby, Michigan.
The OSS machine was designed to fill and repair cracks & potholes using the 4 Season Pavement Repair products in bulk application.
Our main goal when building the machine was to make it easy to operate and dispense the materials efficiently. Our secondary goal was to build the machine so that it was reliable and trouble-free. All components and parts placed on the machine were purchased from selected vendors to ensure reliability.
We developed a state of the art computer system allowing the machine operator to easily adjust the material flow depending on weather conditions. Hot & cold conditions can affect the set-up time of the material, which is normally 10 – 40 minutes. If the material placed on the roads does not set-up in a timely manner, the machine operator can easily make adjustments to correct the situation through the computer.
To date, our proto-type machine has dispensed over 500,000 lbs. of material on Michigan state and county roads with no major machine issues.
We also continually strive to improve the performance and efficiency of our machine by listening to the customers’ needs and ideas that help us achieve our goals.
To be successful using the machine and product the pothole/crack must be prepared properly.
Tools required for proper preparation:
Broom, handheld blower, pick, shovel, etc.
This continuous crack clean-out also required an air compressor.
Last step - a primer adhesive is applied to the cleaned out pothole/crack before the blended product is dispensed
