Stansteel Hotmix Parts & Service Offers the Stansteel Automatic A.C. Calibration System
To ensure the accuracy of your plant’s liquid asphalt metering system, hot mix producers should periodically run a calibration check. Liquid asphalt cement (AC) can be calibrated and weighed by a separate holding vessel, which is supported on multiple load cells and calibrated with a known weight. The team at Stansteel Hotmix Parts & Service®, Louisville, Kentucky, offers the Stansteel Automatic A.C. Calibration System.
With the Stansteel Automatic A.C. Calibration System, AC can be diverted from the run line on the plant directly to the calibration tank (using the proper piping and valving). The tank is loaded with a specific amount of material and then stopped with a weight registered on the electronic digitizer located in the control house. After the material is weighed, the process can be reversed and pumped back to the AC storage tank so that no waste occurs.
According to the manufacturer, this offers the benefits of:
- Reduced man hours;
• Accurate calibration;
- Quick and easy installation to the current system;
• Vertical, horizontal and portable options; and
• Prompt delivery of units in stock and ready to ship.
