This explains the function, components and variations of a polymer blending system.
The polymer pellets are stocked in Super Bags. The bags are hoisted over the polymer hopper where they are unloaded.
A roof protects the polymer hopper from rain. Two mix tanks combine virgin asphalt with polymer pellets.
An auger feeds polymer pellets into the mix tanks through two flexible tubes known as a pants chute.
The system was installed at the plant site by Heatec field technicians.
Because of the arid climate, this system is entirely outdoors.
Key parts of this polymer blending system are easily installed under roof.
