The STRATCO® Modified Asphalt Contactor™ reactor (MAC) Patent No. 8,388,215 provides improved and faster manufacturing process.
The MAC reduces energy costs because of its heat transfer effectiveness.
The unit’s superior design allows manufacturers to increase throughput maximizing production by controlling & maintaining the binder temperature.
The MAC provides better dispersion of higher concentration of mineral fillers than conventional equipment (even up to 80-85%). This is the key in reducing raw material costs.
Equipment performance also controls and minimizes air entrainment, which could be detrimental to finished product quality, including uniformity and aging.
Any kind of polymer modification can be achieved by incorporating a colloid mill to the MAC production process of:
• Elastomer (e.g. SBS) modified asphalts,
• Plastomer (e.g. APP) modified asphalts.
The MAC could be pressurized as well in order to produce solvent based adhesives. It minimizes hydrocarbon vapor loss.
The MAC is also capable of producing either anionic or cationic asphalt/bitumen emulsions.
