ADM offers high-tech asphalt cement tanks

Asphalt Drum Mixers (ADM) offers new high-tech asphalt cement (AC) tanks that provide an economical way to store and monitor liquid AC.

Available in vertical or horizontal/portable configuration, the asphalt tanks are designed with a serpentine oil arrangement to provide a heat exchange area of more than 1,200 feet, ensuring consistent AC temperatures throughout the tank.

The tanks are constructed of heavy-duty steel and offer storage capacities from 10,000 to 35,000 gallons. Fiberglass blanket insulation and a stucco-embossed .016-gauge banded aluminum jacket protect the tanks and prevent heat loss.

The high-efficiency, hot-oil heater includes a fully jacketed firebox, multi-pass fire-tube heat exchanger and 84-gallon thermal expansion tank. The system also incorporates a 1- to 3-million Btu/hr pre-packaged burner assembly. Other standard features include a combustion air fan, fuel oil pump and No. 2 fuel oil manifold with safety shutoff valves.

A tank-mounted, weatherproof control panel comes standard on both the vertical and horizontal/portable tanks. Features include a main power disconnect, motor start relays, circuit breaker protection, burner controls, automatic temperature controller, high temperature limit, flame signal relay, status indication lights and alarm circuitry.

The horizontal/portable tanks feature a heavy-duty I-beam structural frame and landing gear with a manual hand crank. The horizontal tanks are also offered as a direct-fired system with a submersible fire-tube heating system.
