The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.
The Heatec Barracuda® Colloid Mill is used to make polymer modified asphalt and emulsified asphalt. It has the ability to produce 15,000* gallons of emulsified asphalt per hour in a single pass through the mill. It is powered by a either a 150 or 75 hp electric motor. The mill is designed so the motors are interchangeable without having to change many of the components in the event that you might need to upgrade to the larger motor for higher production.
Mixing in the mill takes place in the gap between the two mill plates. One plate is mounted on an adjustable stator and remains fixed during operation. The other plate is mounted on the rotor and spins at 3600 rpm. The liquids are combined or polymers are sheared by the action of the plates. The gap between the plates can be adjusted to produce the optimum mixture.
The mill comes as a stand alone unit but can be packaged on a skid with additional equipment to give you a complete system. The skid can be fitted with automated controls, metering package, latex pump, piping and more. The skid makes it easy to install the system. You simply need to attach power and tanks.
