The SBE bitumen emulsion1 collection and storage tank is designed for storage of bitumen emulsion produced with the UVB-1 bitumen emulsion unit. It can be supplied with an agitator2 or with a circulation pump. The system is equipped with Dinel and Wika temperature and level sensors, as well as overflow sensors.
The bitumen3 collection vessel consists of the following components:
Bitumen emulsion collection tank
Unit general view: 1 – vessel in frame; 2- service ladder; 3- control cabinet; 4- agitators with drives; 5- heat carrier circulation system (heat exchanger); 6- level sensor; 7- emergency overflow sensor; 8- overflow connector; 9- loading connector; 10- circulation connector; 11- reserve connector; 12-output connector; 13- drain connector; 14- temperature sensors; 15- view hatch
A horizontal insulated vessel pos. 1, made of structural-grade steel, with heat carrier circulation system pos.5. In the lower part of the tank is an output connector pos.12, through which bitumen is discharged to consumers, and a drain connector pos. 13.
Inside the tank there are vane agitators, pos. 4, with drives on the roof of the vessel.
For control of bitumen level in the vessel, a level sensor pos. 6 is installed. To further improve reliability of the vessel, a reserve level sensor (emergency sensor), pos. 7, is installed, which stops the input pump automatically when this level is reached. An overflow connector is installed in the back wall of the vessel, pos. 8.
Control cabinet pos. 3 facilitates control of the unit.
A service ladder is installed on the side of the vessel, pos. 2.
