Asphalt Analyzer YOU for extraction and binder determination of bituminous materials within a closed system using non-inflammable solvents. Bituminous materials (up to 3.5 kg) is weighed into a washing drum, placed into the washing chamber and then automatically washed by means of solvents and ultrasonic. The number of washing cycles can be preselected depending on the type of material. Minerals are left in the sieve drum whereas binder, solvents and fillers are washed out and separated in the connected centrifuge. Filler is retained in the centrifuge cup 20-0330 resp. 20-0335 whereas binder and solvent are separated in the connected recovery still by distillation. Solvents are reused. Two windows allow a visual check of the recovery process. After washing out, the minerals and fillers are dried automatically, and after completion of the program the process can be continued with sieve analysis. Main advantages of this machine are the quick extraction time of approx. 35 to 45 minutes including drying and the considerably reduced ecological damage because of solvent loss < 20 ml per extraction. For operation washing drums and covers 20-1106.. as well as centrifuge cups 20-0330.. are required in addition.
KIT Recycling (RC-AsphalT): Two windows in the recovery cover allow an observation of the current recovery process on the clean and dirty side. A sieve inlet keep the massless asphalt components, which has not been collected in the centrifuge. Two temperature limiter with LED maintain a easy access for heating and operation of distillation processes. The new design of the vertical chiller allow a quick recovery of solvent, including a direct connection for bituminous medium into a rotary evaporation apparatus.
