Bergkamp Laboratory Research Plants

Laboratory Research Plants are designed and built to have all the capabilities of production-scale plants with more control. This enables the operator to experiment, investigate, and troubleshoot many different variables of the product as well as the production process. These plants can be customized to meet special requirements.

BK-03R

  • A true small-scale emulsion production process for the laboratory
  • Mill geometry is the same as production-scale colloid mills
  • Capable of making any asphalt emulsion, even under extreme conditions
  • Independently thermostatic control for soap and asphalt tanks
  • Heat-exchange system for high-temperature emulsion production
  • The asphalt lines are all located in a “hot side” oven compartment, eliminating the need for heat trace and insulation and making easy access and servicing to components
  • Production process is computer controlled for high accuracy and repeatability
  • Continuously variable production rates through flowrate control of soap and asphalt
  • The plant is controlled by an intuitive touch-screen controllerv
  • All sensor data can be displayed and graphed in real time
  • Data can be logged and exported to excel or spreadsheet
  • Dimensions without packaging 1580 mm X 620 mm X 1570 mm (62’’ X 24.5” X 62’’)
  • Weight without packaging is approximately 300 kg (660 lbs)

BK-P03R

  • Same emulsion capabilities as the BK-03R with the ability to also make polymer modified asphalt (PMA
  • Includes higher horsepower asphalt pump motor
  • Includes pre-mix tank with top mixer
  • Incorporates SBS polymer pellets or similar materials
  • Dimensions without packaging 1580 mm X 620 mm X 1570 mm (62’’ X 24.5” X 62’’)
  • Weight without packaging is approximately 300 kg (660 lbs)

BK-P03R-M

  • For Modified Asphalt Only (no emulsion production)
  • Mill will incorporate SBS or other similar polymer into binder quickly and efficiently
  • Dimensions without packaging 1580 mm X 620 mm X 1570 mm (62’’ X 24.5” X 62’’)
  • Weight without packaging is approximately 300 kg (660 lbs)
