We understand how important reliability is for plant operators utilising pumps in the bitumen industry. We have a proven track record of supplying pumps for this exacting market, not just in the UK but across the world. We know that our customers need to keep their Bitumen plant running smoothly, which is why we have developed a reliable range of pumps, with many options designed to suit every requirement. Our pumps will operate with bitumen at temperatures of up to 300 degrees centigrade.
Having worked in the Bitumen industry for many years, we have found that the majority of our pumps have been used for transfer duties; pumping bitumen from one tank to another, from tank to mixing plant, to and from weigh kettles or for unloading and loading road and rail tankers. Our smaller, non-integral heated versions, are mostly used for applications such as pavement sprayers.
Why use Albany?
Albany’s Bitumen intended pumps are currently used in the world’s finest asphalt plants and many refineries. Our model range of gear pumps and screw pumps can be used externally serving horizontal and vertical tanks or for immersed use in horizontal tanks. We also offer thermal oil, steam or electrically heated pumps which are perfect for use with products such as bitumen, which would otherwise be thick and viscous.
Albany Pumps has also developed a simple leak-free seal cartridge system, which eliminates wasted product and delivering significant environmental benefits. When our seals are correctly maintained, they are even known to have exceeded a five year life span. Spare parts required to maintain your pump can also be manufactured and supplied by Albany, keeping your pump ancillaries and servicing all under one roof.
