Main Features

Structure of this Equipment is a closed chamber with spring doors on both ends. Bitumen barrels are elevated by a small gantry crane and then pushed into the heating chamber by hydraulic propulsion unit. The Equipment is of nice shape, compact and neat design, high production efficiency, stable and reliable performance, no bitumen waste or pollution; and it is able to operate under all kinds of working conditions.

Fast barrel removal. The heat radiation area of the coiled heat transfer oil pipelines in the Equipment is very large; it takes very short time to melt bitumen and improves production efficiency to a large degree. The heating coils (heat transfer oil pipelines) are divided into small sections and each section is independently controlled; heat can be properly allocated between upper compartment and lower compartment so as to ensure synchronization between barrel removing and asphalt liquefying. Hot emission air from diesel burner is also recycled to heating bitumen; thus diesel energy is utilized to a maximum degree. Built-in boiler ensures direct heat transference and reduces heat loss. The whole heating chamber is enclosed by thickened premium rock wool heat insulation panels; so the heat preservation is excellent.

Completely bitumen removal from barrel. Temperature in heating chamber is quite high, and each barrel can be heated by hot emission air and heating coils closed to it; thus bitumen get melt and drop down very quickly and completely from barrels, and there is no bitumen adhere to barrel and there is almost no waste.

Automatic impurity removal. This Equipment has a function of automatic impurity removal. Filtration devices are installed in bitumen pipelines, and impurities in the barrelled bitumen can be removed by such filtration devices.

Automatic temperature control:The start /stop of diesel burner are controlled by the temperature of bitumen and heat transfer oil.

Customization: The Equipment can be customized according to the dimension of bitumen barrel.

Easy operation: Humanization design, convenient and easy to operate, low labor intensity.

Environment-friendly: enclosed structure, no pollution.

Easy mobilization:Easy and convenient to install, low transportation cost. The Equipment is integrated structure and can be load on one flat truck.

Patent Technology

This Equipment is a perfect integration of heat transfer oil boiler and decanting device, saving land coverage and transportation cost of heat transfer oil boiler. The Equipment recycles the emission air and adopts built-in boiler which heats asphalt directly, thus heat loss is reduced greatly and heat utilization efficiency is improved.

After remove the upper cover of bitumen barrels, the former bitumen decanting machine require a worker to bottom up barrels; in addition, bitumen drop down to ground when moving the bottom-up barrels to rail. BDM bitumen decanting machine overcome the aforesaid troubles, saving labor and getting rid of bitumen waste and pollution.

By placing each bitumen barrel on one tray and then moving them on rails, BDM bitumen decanting machine overcome the shortcomings of former decanting machine, e.g. heavy frictional force, clogged moving and deformation of rail and asphalt barrels when pushing barrels forward directly by hydraulic propulsion device.
