Bitumen pressure distributor is essential machinery for road building. It allows uniform spraying of bitumen before the laying of hot mix asphalt so that the laid asphalt can stick to the surface.
Tar sprayers by Atlas Industries are available in capacities of 4 T, 6 T, 8 T, 10 T and 12 Tons. We have designed them to perform in rough conditions and are fully tried and tested in rough Indian conditions. Designed with precision, our equipment is bound to perform in tough situations.
We are confident of the machine because the quality that we give is unparalleled. All the parts used are highly durable and suited for tough Indian conditions. Operating and maintenance is easy and does not require skilled labour.
All the safety points are very well considered while making bitumen sprayer. However tough and accurate your spraying job may be, this sprayer will surely deliver.
Tank is fabricated by a 5 mm MS sheet and is coated by 50 mm glass wool from all sides. This is done to prevent heat loss. The outer covering is galvanized. Galvanized tank is better as it has long life due to its anti-corrosion properties. Manhole for maintenance or to fill the bitumen tank is of 450 mm diameter.
Manual and electronic temperature gauge is provided for temperature display up to 300 Degrees Celsius. Electronic temperature gauge is given at the drivers cabin. A ladder and platform is provided for ease of access to the top. A cock is given at the bottom of the tank so that full bitumen tank can be drained out when required.
Single high pressure oil burner is provided for adequate heating of viscose binder with the tar sprayer. Burner is compatible with diesel. Burner suitable for heating of bitumen tanks are of capacity 43000 cal or 100000 cal depending upon the sprayer capacity.
Hand torch type burner of capacity 26000 cal is for manually cleaning the pipelines in extreme cold conditions. This burner will be useful to facilitate quick start up of the sprayer in extreme cold. There are two fuel storage tanks provided with the sprayer. One is of 100 liters for burner and other is of 50 liters for engine.
Single stage twin cylinder air cooled diesel engine of 25HP at 2000 RPM “KIRLOSKAR” Engine model HA 294 is fitted with Atlas bitumen sprayer for sale.
Engine powers bitumen pump and air compressor. Fuel consumption is 3-4 liters per hour.
Bitumen pump and air compressor
Both bitumen pumps and air compressor are engine driven. Bitumen pump is connected to the engine by a heavy duty clutch. Just engaging the clutch will activate the pump. Bitumen pump gear type 380 to 450 Liters per minute.
Double cylinder 3HP driven by v-belt through engine. Discharge pressure is 150 PSIG, with piston displacement of 11.25 / 8.70-CFM / FAD @1000 RPM
Return line in spray is designed in such a way that you can set and adjust the spray bar pressure from the gland cock. The gland cock can be adjusted in a way to fasten the heating process during starting up the machine.
Bitumen transfer line
Bitumen can be filled in the bitumen tank through a bitumen transfer line. Filling of bitumen will be easy and by the same pump which is provided with the sprayer. No extra pump is required.
Standard spray bar of bitumen emulsion sprayer is folding type fitted with pressure gauge regulating valve etc. Standard width of the spray bar is from 2.4 mtrs to 4.2 mtrs which can also be re-designed to give a spray of upto 6.0 meters.
Spray bar does adjustment of width by closing nozzles. Adjustment of spray bar height is mechanical
Pre-heating of spray is by full circulation of preheated bitumen.
Spraying pressure can be adjusted from 0-6 bar. One Hand spray pipe SS Corrugated pipe of length 5 meter is provided.
Cleaning is by air pressure and by by diesel oil. Rate of spray application: 0.3-1.0 kg per sq meters, Calibration chart is provided at the operator’s platform.
A pneumatic hand lever valve is provided near the operator's seat. This is important to open and close the spray nozzles.
A cleaning system is provided with the sprayer near the bitumen pump. At the end of day bitumen flow has to be off and entire spray line and spray bar can be cleaned by using air pressure and diesel.
Atlas make bitumen sprayers are available in the capacities of 4 T, 6 T, 8 T, 10 T and 12 T. These sprayers come with 4.5 m spraying width or with 6 meters spraying width. These bitumen pressure distributors come with glass wool covered tank to reduce the heat loss. The sprayer is powered by a Kirloskar or standard make engine with a standard make bitumen pump and air compressor. These tar sprayers are very easy to operate, maintain and clean. These asphalt sprayers are designed to give uniform spraying.
