Bitumen is a key component in road construction.
Bitumen is a mixture of organic liquids that are highly viscous, black, sticky, and entirely soluble in carbon disulfide. Bitumen or asphalt melters are primarily used with asphalt mixing plants in territories where bitumen is not available in bulk, regular supplies are unreliable, or bitumen stored in drums is used as an alternative. Naturally occurring or crude bitumen is a sticky, tar-like form of petroleum which is very thick and heavy requiring heating or dilution before it will flow. For the bitumen to be applied, it needs to be heated first and LPG is used to heat bitumen for the best construction experience.
LPG bitumen melters (bitumen tanks/kettles) are designed to reheat and melt bitumen packed in drums. They can be fitted to installations such as coating plants or bitumen binder production plants. These melters can also be mounted on road trailers or semi-trailers for easy, fast transportation.
