Bitumen emulsion plant.
For outdoor operation the equipment can be manufactured in containers with rolling doors or anti-vandal protection.
For indoor operation or operation under canopy the equipment can be manufactured in an open container.
The 1 m3/hour and 2 m3/hour UVB-1 bitumen emulsion systems are built in open containers and containers with rolling doors. The 8 m3/hour UVB-1 bitumen emulsion plants are are built in open container, containers with rolling doors and anti-vandal containers.

Bitumen emulsion unit
Quality – the ability to ensure high quality without the need to heat mineral material and binding. This alone saves up to 40% energy in comparison with regular “hot” process.
Environmental considerations. Bitumen emulsion does not cause harmful emissions in the atmosphere, there is no risk of explosion or burns during transportation or bitumen solution processing.
Transportation of bitumen emulsion
Bitumen emulsions are transported in special tanks, bitumen carrier, cubic vessels and metal barrels.
Bitumen emulsions are stored in special tanks or other cylindrical vessels. The vessels must be clean: must not contain residual emulsions, bitumen, POL or other acidic or alkaline materials.
Emulsion of different composition must not be mixed in one vessel. Tanks must be tightly closed to prevent ingress of foreign objects and evaporation of water. The temperature of storage must be at least 5°С. If the volume of the emulsion is more than 1m3, the tanks should be equipped with special stirring agitators.
Our company offers special vertical emulsion storage tanks SBE and SMB to store emulsion and polymer modified bitumen respectively. These tanks are equipped with heating and circulation systems and can easily integrate into the existing production process of a facility.
