The UVB-6P bitumen emulsion unit is designed for production of either anionic or cationic bitumen emulsions used in road construction for the following purposes:
- preparation coating for old road top before application of asphalt concrete;
- preparation of cold asphalt concrete mix;
- road top surface treatment;
- thin protective coat preparation;
- patch repairs of roads etc.
The unit will benefit asphalt concrete production facilities.
The unit may be operated either indoors or outdoors under canopy.
Ambient temperature range for operation is from +5oС to +400С.

UVB-20 bitumen emulsion unit is semi-automatic and consists of components mounted on a single frame and interconnected by pipelines.
The unit requires an external source of compressed air (6 – 8 bar) for operation of pneumatically operated components.
The following components are mounted on the frame:
- bitumen reverse pump;
- flux supply pump;
- emulsion mill;
- blend pump;
- water pump;
- bitumen supply valve;
- flux supply valve;
- water phase supply valve;
- blend supply valve;
- water flow meter;
- blend flow meter;
- flux flow meter;
- bitumen and flux mixer;
- bitumen and water phase mixer;
- emulsion and latex mixer;
- water phase mixer;
- blend mixer;
- flux safety valve;
- emulsion safety valve;
- flux regulation valve;
- blend regulation valve;
- water regulation valve;
- acid consumption tanks;
- emulsifier consumption tanks;
- additive consumption tanks;
- air preparation assembly.
Water pipeline is equipped with a mesh filter.
Flux pipelines is equipped with a mesh filter.
Pipelines are also equipped with manually operated valves.
The heating system is equipped with the following valves:
The unit is equipped with temperature and pressure sensors.
Temperature is measures at the following points:
- water supply;
- flux supply;
- bitumen input;
- bitumen to mixer;
- emulsion output;
Pressure is measured at the following points:
- before the unit;
- after bitumen pump.
The unit is supplied with emulsion tank heater.
The heater is a welded flat platform. A 200 liter emulsifier barrel is placed on the platform. A heating agent circulates through pipes in the platform.
The control cabinet is an air-tight metal case containing «Schneider zelio» controller, Autonics measuring regulators, protection and start equipment
