Holding suspension 

Bitumen that is crude or filled with polymer must be stored at a high temperature (120-160° C) to be able to be pumped. An agitator is required to maintain constant temperature throughout the tank.

For this kind of storage, Milton Roy Mixing recommends one of two agitator types depending upon the process:

  • A vertical agitator mounted on top of the vessel
  • A side-entry mixer
Depending upon the volume to be stirred, the following factors must be considered:
 
  • The vertical agitation does not require particular sealing. It allows better heat distribution in the tank resulting from several SABRE® propellers with slow rotation.
  • The side-entry mixer, which is easier to install, must be equipped with reliable sealing at the shaft. Several simple, reliable solutions can be shared based upon Milton Roy Mixing’s vast experiences with other applications.
