bitumen

Iran bitumen has high quality in the  world.  It  is  famous  to  NIOC bitumen and available in different grades, packing  between 10000MT to 12000MT monthly.

Available packing is new steel drum, poly bag, Bulk bitumen, Bitutank.

Bitumen Standards:
Bitumen 30/40,   Bitumen 40/50,   Bitumen 50/70,   Bitumen 60/70,   Bitumen 80/100,   Bitumen 85/100,   Bitumen R85/25,   Bitumen R90/15,   Bitumen R95/25,   Bitumen 100/120,   Bitumen 100/200,   Bitumen MC250 or cutback.
other grades of bitumen will produce according to order.

Bitumen?
Bitumen is produced from selected crude oils through a process of fractional distillation. The crude oil is heated to temperatures of between 300 and 350 degrees Celsius and fed into a distillation column allowing the lightest fractions of the crude to separate, through vaporization, from the heavier fractions, which remain liquid.

The higher boiling  point  fractions are then drawn - off via a heat exchanger and enter a vacuum distillation column. This process produces a "short residue" that is used to  manufacture  several  grades of  bitumen.  The  pressure and temperature conditions  within  the vacuum  process  will  determine the hardness of the short residue, and as  such  the  grade  of  bitumen produced. The short residue may be further modified by   'air blowing'  in which  air is  passed  through the residue at temperatures of 250 - 300 degrees Celsius.

The above are the typical Penetration or Paving Grades of bitumen. Additional processing provides other grades of bitumen products such as:
Oxidized bitumens - produced by more vigorous air blowing; they are more 'rubber like' and less temperature susceptible than the paving grades.
Hard Grade bitumens - harder paving grades.
Cutback bitumens - blends of penetration bitumens with solvent such as kerosene.
Emulsions - stabilized suspensions of bitumen in water.
Polymer Modified Bitumens - mixtures of selected bitumens with polymers such as thermoplastics or elastomers.

Bitumen Packing
Over the years, through investment in the most up-to-date handling systems and purpose-built packing, we have now developed systems, which helps us to help our customers.
A key approach has been to focus on New Steel Drum supply over Polybags-Packed, or Bulk Shipments, since, as the table above shows, this results in saving time, the consistency of quality, costs and our respect for the environment of mother earth.
