Stansteel and Hotmix Parts Engineer Asphalt Safe-T Station
BY AsphaltPro Staff
Asphalt plant safety is the No. 1 priority for every asphalt producer. It is vital to take steps to keep everyone on the asphalt plant safe from harm. The largest number of asphalt plant injuries comes from hot liquid asphalt cement. With the ever-changing governmental regulations of having to sample liquid AC more frequently, it is time to remove the person from the process. Stansteel and Hotmix Parts, Louisville, Kentucky, engineered the asphalt Safe-T Station to do just that.
The Safe-T Station is an in-line liquid AC sample port that encloses the sample container, immediately removing any harm of burn or injury. The Safe-T Station is large enough to fit a one-gallon sample container but also provides the safety of taking a quart size sample. The door of the enclosed collection container includes a viewing glass so the person collecting the sample can get the amount needed. The Safe-T Station takes safety another step further by not allowing the plug valve to release AC unless the door is securely closed. There is also a safety latch for the plug valve handle when not in use. This ensures the plug valve is never accidently activated when no one is present.
The Safe-T Station is versatile to your plant setup. The Safe-T Station can be incorporated into all brands and manufactures of asphalt plants. The AC line is fully jacketed and comes in 3-inch or 4-inch lines and can also be horizontal or vertical. Many have even begun using the Safe-T Station after the unloading pump to ensure they are receiving the correct AC from the refinery for total quality assurance.
