The bitumen melter is designed to decant bitumen from drums and heat the melted bitumen to pumping temperature for transfer to adjacent tanks for further processing or also to act as a hot box for storage of bitumen.
The top cover is removed from the bitumen drums with a drum cutter and inverted and placed on the trays in the trolley for drums. Up to a maximum of 32 drums can be pushed inside the hot box at a time. The temperature inside the hot box melts the bitumen and the drums are decanted.
