Pilot plant developed for the design and production of modified bitumens in the laboratory. It is a very compact unit designed to occupy as little space as possible. It allows modifying bitumen with different polymers to obtain material with specific requirements.
The basic principle of modified bitumen of design and production is to mix bitumen with different polymers through a special mixer mill to homogenize the final product. The plant also has a second maturation tank to equip the equipment with a continuous production cycle.
The bitumen circuit starts from a controlled heating tank where bitumen and aggregates are introduced. Depending on the type of mixture, the entire assembly can be recirculated through a gear pump, or only through the mill that will homogenize the mixture. The entire bitumen circuit has a system of forced heating by insulated heat resistors.
