Astec Industries Heatec Asphalt Storage Tanks
August 28, 2008

Astec Industries’ Heatec Asphalt storage tanks 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, portable and 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.
