Bitumen & SurfacingBitumen Handling & Road Surfacing Products
A range of equipment for road surface dressing, bitumen and bitumen-emulsion storage and transportation.
Regulatory compliance and health and safety considerations are given paramount importance throughout a product range designed for the storage and handling of a variety of hazardous materials.
Through its Cartem brand, Parker Plant is the foremost specialist manufacturer of Bitumen Handling Systems in the United Kingdom and overseas, servicing numerous industries. Established in 1949, Cartem is synonymous with quality, safety and reliability. Its pedigree of innovation and development is most recently illustrated by the Spreadmaster Chipspreader and High Efficiency Vertical Storage Systems.
Parker's range of towed and demountable sprayers is perfectly suited for smaller contracts including bond coat and surface dressing works. Available in a range of tank sizes they are self contained units which come complete with a hand lance and can also be offered with a spray bar.
Parker supplies a comprehensive range of binder distributors which cover all aspects of bitumen emulsion application such as surface dressing and bond coat application. The available range of spray bars enables customers to carry out a comprehensive range of contract types.
The new ‘SpreadMaster’ chipping spreader has been designed as the ultimate solution for surface dressing works. With a variable width twin section front aggregate hopper which is continuously expandable and a series of cut off gates the chipper is capable of spread widths of 300mm to 4.4 metres.
The Parker High Efficiency Vertical Bitumen tanks have been designed and developed to be used on sites where space is at a premium. Designed to minimise heat loss and energy usage, thus reducing energy costs.
The Parker Fast Mover Bitumen Storage Tank is the ideal solution for mobile plants such as those used for asphalt, recycling and foamed bitumen applications. Designed to the highest standards for safe and efficient operation the tank is fully self-contained, and comes mounted on a semi chassis for rapid deployment.
Bitumen Emulsion Storage
Self contained bulk storage tanks, designed to modern operational safety standards, fully insulated and mounted on a semi-trailer chassis they can be positioned close to the work site to maximise output.
In response to the need for compliance with increasing environmental standards Parker has developed a range of Self Bunded Tanks for the storage of bitumen emulsions. With an integral 110% capacity bund, the units are easily transportable and only require a suitable hard standing and electrical supply for siting.
Heat and Melt
The Cartemixer Range of heavy duty, stirred mixing tanks is designed to heat mix and blend materials which, due to their composition and mix proportions require handling in a purpose built machine.
Parker thermal oil heat exchangers are designed to provide an alternative heating system for bitumen storage tanks on remote construction sites where electrical supply load is limited or where thermal oil heating is a preferred option.
