The running costs associated with the storage of bitumen and bituminous products has always been of concern.
Benninghoven have for many years laid great emphasis on research and development in this area resulting in a range of bitumen storage tanks and associated equipment which minimizes energy usage and heat loss, thereby reducing running costs.
Bitumen tanks with different volume capacities, electrically heated and insulated, are used for storing the hot bitumen or one of the main components of the asphalt. These are available as single-chamber or multiple-chamber tanks. For storing polymer modified bitumen, the tanks can be equipped with an additional agitator or mixing nozzle.
The tanks are developed, designed and manufactured in-house at BENNINGHOVEN.
The bitumen system, i.e. tanks and piping, are adapted to the optimum supply for the asphalt mixing plant, whether through the convenient central control from the control cabin or the completely separate additional dosing of special bitumen, such as clear bitumen. Our technological leadership for asphalt mixing plants comprises the complete know-how, including the area of bitumen systems.
