On 7 February 2015, GlobeCore‘s employees finished the start up the UVB-1 unit (capacity 2 m³/hour) in Baku, Azerbaijan.
Units designed for production of bitumen emulsion are in demand due to their competitive price and high quality characteristics of the final bitumen emusion product they produce. It is worth noting the following benefits of bitumen emulsions:
- no warm up necessary; Application of bitumen emulsion allows the workers to save energy and reduce the time required to conduct construction projects since there is no need to warm up bitumen to 150-160°C. Additionally, road construction projects are safe since the risk of thermal burns is greatly reduced when using GlobeCore bitumen emulsion equipment.
- possibility to apply bitumen emulsion to the road surface with residual moisture. In such a way, the road construction season may be significantly extended.
- application of adhesive additives and special diluents gives the possibility to make bitumen emulsion more efficient when there are surface irregularities, pores, and cracks.
Cationic bitumen emulsions provide better adhesion to the surface due to the electric force between positive and negative charges.
Taking everything into consideration, it should be noted that the most undeniable benefits of bitumen emulsion are increased productivity and high quality of completed road construction projects.
UVB-1 units range in capacity (1,2,6, or 8 m³
/h) and are designed to produce both cationic and anionic bitumen emulsions that fully comply with international quality standards of the road construction industry.
