Penetration Grade

Bitumen is viscous, nonvolatile liquid or solid. Bitumen is a complex colloid system the chemical properties of which are dependent on the properties of crude oil from which it is produced. Pure bitumen is a colloid dispersion of microscopic asphalt particles (dispersion phase). The chemical composition of bitumen is a mixture of various hydrocarbons with molecules of oxygen, sulphur, and nitrogen. Hydrocarbons present in bitumen are mostly condensed naphthene and aromatic rings with small number of side paraffin chains.

 

Mass fraction of hydrocarbons is 75-85%, hydrogen 9-10%, oxygen 2-8%, sulphur 5-7%, and nitrogen 0.1-0.5%. Bitumen is partially or completely soluble in various organic solvents. Dissolved fractions of bitumen in solvent are called maltenes or petrolenes, and undissolved fractions are called aspaltenes. The maltenes are a mixture of resins and oil, and they are a disperse agent. For the most part, physical properties of bitumen depend on dispersion degree of asphaltenes in maltenes.

Bitumen

Penetration Grade Bitumen is a standard bitumen usually used as a Paving Grade Bitumen essential for road construction and for the production of asphalt pavements with superior properties, and it’s very important once it bounds the aggregates and creates a unique cohesion and stability to the bituminous mix.

Viscosity Grade Bitumen

Bitumen are also graded and specified by their viscosity at a standard temperature (typically 60°C). Specifications for viscosity graded bitumen normally give the nominal viscosity prefixed by a V, e.g. V1500.

Bitumen Packing Types:-

 

—Bulk Bitumen

Transportation of this kind of Bitumen is done though Bulk vessels or bitumen tankers

 

—Drum Bitumen

Drum is one of the most applicable packaging type of bitumen which are shipped into containers or Barges (180 KG & 150 KG)

 

—Poly Bag

Poly bag is an environmental packaging technology for various grades of bitumen that provides for end users transportable and more use of product (30-40 KG & 1000KG)

PROCESS OIL

Base Oil

Base Stocks, obtained after above listed operations are called Solvent Neutral Base Oil ( SN) which are distinguished with numbers according to their approximate SUS viscosity at 40°c  such as SN 90, SN150, SN350, SN500 etc.

Base oils are used to manufacture products including lubricating greases, motor oil and metal processing fluids. Different products require different compositions and properties in the oil. One of the most important factors is the liquid’s viscosity at various temperatures.
