The Vulcan burner and our new touch screen heater panel that monitors our customers’ complete tank farm is an innovation our company has brought to the asphalt industry that is bringing great momentum to our customers. Our new Vulcan burner and heater panel technology are assisting customers with fuel efficiency and diagnostic information to help them meet the competitive demands of the industry.
In addition to these environmentally friendly products, Reliable is in the late stages of research and development of a patented reclaimed asphalt dryer known as RAP Saver. Over the past 15 years, Reliable has been steadily working with the industry in developing an environmentally friendly system for extracting moisture from reclaimed asphalt. Reclaimed asphalt moisture causes severe production issues for an asphalt plant. As usage of reclaimed asphalt increases, fuel efficiency and production decrease in a conventional asphalt plant arrangement. Reliable’s efforts have focused on removing a portion of that moisture prior to injecting the reclaimed asphalt into the plant, thereby increasing plant production while decreasing fuel usage. Although Reliable has not brought this product to market yet, it is in the late stages of development and testing. Reliable Asphalt plans to make this product another industry standard in the near future.
Sustainability with Asphalt
Over the years, the asphalt industry has become increasingly more environmentally conscious, and Reliable Asphalt Products has developed many products to meet these eco-friendly improvements. Reliable is an industry leader in supplying and repurposing used and reconditioned asphalt plant equipment. Obviously, this reduces the need for new manufactured equipment.
Asphalt is the world’s most recycled product, and Reliable offers a full line of equipment and innovations to increase usage of reclaimed asphalt into the final mix. Vulcan burners improve production and efficiency of existing plants. Due to the precise calibrations of MINDS plant automation, waste in the process is minimized. The patented Vulcan burner is already an industry leader as a low NOx burner. The Vulcan burner typically requires less horsepower than the competition and is designed to efficiently burn multiple fuels. Reliable has developed a water injection system to work in conjunction with the Vulcan burner to further reduce NOx emissions to help in meeting EPA requirements for our customers.
We’re assisting in our customers’ stewardship of the environment and their ability to meet upcoming net-zero goals because the revolutionary Vulcan burner is highly efficient.
Replacing older burner technology with a new Vulcan burner will increase our customers’ fuel efficiency while reducing gaseous emissions, thereby making our customers better environmental stewards.
