UVB-40 Plant For Production of Modified Bitumen. 40 m3/hour capacity

For many years the usual construction materials offered satisfactory quality. But as traffic loads and road durability and reliability requirements grew, along with the need to save resources, the disadvantages of using regular bitumen in construction became apparent. Those are high sensitivity to temperature, bad mechanical properties and low elasticity, as well as aging tendency.

Modification of bitumen with polymers can achieve higher quality:

  • improvement of performance characteristics at high and low temperatures;
  • improvement  of plasticity;
  • raise of material fatigue resistance;
  • increased service life;
  • improved cohesion and adhesion with  filling materials.

GlobeCore offers the companies requiring high volumes of modified bitumen its new UVB-40 unit. This equipment is designed for production of polymer modified bitumen.

The main element of the plant is a colloid mill operating at 40 m3/hour. It ensures blending, grinding and homogenizing of the product, eliminating the need for a separate blending assembly. The yigh quality of modified bitumen is achieved due to control of temperature and pressure of bitumen, plasticizer and polymer in every point of the production line.

Reverse bitumen pipeline can perform gradual heating of separate elements of the UVB-40, as well as flushing with fresh bitumen. Screw conveyer supplies bitumen to plant inlet. Continuous operation of equipment can be achieved by installing an additional polymer discharger.

UVB-40 is produced in a container; the process and process parameters are controlled from a single control panel.

Advantages of the plant:

  1. Components grinding and homogenizing are performed in one pass due to special design of mill blades;
  2. Total power consumption is decreased, since there are no separate blenders;
  3. Simple system of mill gap adjustment.
