Pumps for Asphalt / Bitumen - Automobile & Ground Transport
DESMI has a full range of different pumps and matching equipment supporting the handing of bitumen products. Including unique features suited for today’s needs and new polymer based formulations, we have the solution. For certain applications, we can offer proven sealing options, available is also a patented zero-leakage pump with a state of the art magnetic coupling. This pump offers a total protection against spillage and vapour, which may create environmental hazards. Electrical heating is an alternative to heating by liquid or steam. Applications tend to fall into four categories: Production (refining), distribution (terminals), hot mix (paving mixtures), and roofing (filled asphalts). Refineries and terminals often use steel pumps, while hot mix asphalt plants use mainly cast iron pumps with heating jacketed, and either packing or mechanical seals. Roofing plants are generally pumping highly abrasive, filled asphalts for shingle manufacturing.
