Heatec asphalt emulsion storage tanks are available with electric heating or hot oil heating. Vertical or horizonal configurations are available.
Asphalt emulsion is a combination of three basic ingredients, asphalt, water, and small amount of an emulsifying agent. In the same process, these components are introduced into a mechanism known as a colloid mill, which shears the asphalt into tiny droplets.
Formulation of asphalt emulsions constitutes a complex task. Formulator must evaluate a series of parameters related to the emulsion properties and its application.
Cold Mix Paving is the process of mixing aggregate with asphalt emulsion and applying the mix to the roadway using a specialized paver. With the proper mix design, Cold Mix Paving can be used as a flexible top course, binder course, base course and shoulder backup.
Handling Asphalt Emulsions - DO's & Don'ts DO's:. Set the clearance on pumps for emulsions to prevent binding and to prevent breaking of the emulsion. Clear lines, valves, and pumps of emulsion.
Ensure the quality of your hot asphalt and emulsions with Etnyre storage tanks. The electric heat and agitation systems keep material stable and suspended for extended periods.
Here is a method for breaking emulsions that Jack Jones stumbled upon in late 2004. This method uses biodiesel glycerine by-product as the emulsion breaking ingredient, a readily available ingredient for anybody that makes biodiesel.
Many factors can contribute to emulsion breaking prior to use on the road surface, but when an emulsion breaks, the asphalt component bonds to the nearest surfaces. In pavement preservation, the break needs to occur after the application of the emulsion to ensure a strong chemical bond with the road surface and aggregate.

Bitumen emulsions are available in many different forms, either cationic or anionic, with varying breaking or setting rates and binder types and contents. The two most common basic emulsion types are designated by the letter 'C' for cationic emulsions, as in CRS (cationic rapid setting), and by the letter 'A' in anionic emulsions, as in ASS ...
Used for determining the breaking point of solid and semi-solid bitumens. The Fraas Breaking Point is the temperature at which bitumen first becomes brittle, as indicated by the appearance of cracks when a thin-film of the bitumen on a metal plaque is cooled and flexed in accordance with specified conditions.

An asphalt emulsion consists of three basic components, asphalt, water and an emulsifying agent. An asphalt emulsion is a stable dispersion of asphalt cement droplets in water, which can be pumped, stored and mixed with aggregates.
Asphalt-solids adhesion and emulsion breaking process When asphalt emulsions are used in cold mixes, the formulator must consider chemical properties of surfactants and aggregates.
Asphalt Emulsion Mills . ... It also directly influences the emulsion viscosity and breaking behavior. In high asphalt content emulsions, like those used in pavement preservation applications, the asphalt ratio can be optimized for a given viscosity specification.
