A variety of building products use continuous manufacturing equipment because of the many benefits they offer. Some of the equipment that applications in this industry use include the Continuous Processor (CP), Self-Contained Processor (SCP), and Continuous Hybrid Reactor (CHR). This equipment offers a highly efficient method of mixing doughs and pastes of high viscosity levels. Additionally, continuous manufacturing systems allow for efficient solvent and moisture removal and inert gas blanketing to protect your oxygen sensitive products.

Asphalt Roofing Material Case
One of our customers in the building products industry required a system to meet their individual application requirements. Specifically, this customer needed equipment that would allow for the dispersal and dissolution of fillers and additives into asphalt with fast residence process speeds. They also required dual processors to help reduce or eliminate the need for heating large mix and storage tanks for long periods of time.
Although asphalt benefits from the introduction of certain additives such as oil and rubber pellets, the traditional process for incorporating them is often time-consuming. In addition, the process needs to hold the temperature of the material at over 300° F, which consumes a lot of energy.
