Asphalt storage tanks from Heatec are designed for storing liquid asphalt cement and polymer modified bitumen. They are used at hot mix asphalt plants, asphalt terminals, and asphalt roofing plants.
Heatec asphalt tanks are available in a wide variety of sizes, from 10,000 gallon capacity to 35,000 gallon capacity. Larger models are also available.
Heatec offers tanks in vertical, portableand horizontal stationary configurations. Many options are available, including mixers for polymer modified asphalt (polymer modified bitumen), radar level gauges and power-actuated valves.
Most Heatec asphalt tanks are heated by serpentine heating coils. Heated thermal fluid from a hot oil heater circulates through the coils, transferring heat to asphalt stored inside the tank. We also offer direct-fired tanks that are heated by a burner that fires directly into a fire tube that is mounted inside the tank.
Safety features include overflow protection and low-level controls that prevent heating a tank if asphalt level drops below the heating coils or fire tube.
