Bitumen Truck Cleaning

The road surfacing industry is a massive business here in Australia.

 

Road resurfacing as well as new pavements is often achieved with the use of “Sprayed Seal”
A sprayed seal is a thin layer of binder sprayed onto a pavement surface with a layer of aggregate incorporated and which is impervious to water. A Sprayed Seal is sometimes referred to as a “Spray Seal”, a “Bitumen Seal” or a “Chip Seal”.

The trucks and equipment used to apply the spray seal can, over time, become heavily contaminated with a build-up of bitumen spray which can be extremely difficult and messy to remove.

Cleaning with dry ice can remove the hardened layers of bitumen without damaging the sensitive and nozzles and control lines.

Dry Ice Blasting offers a relatively fast and less hazardous method of cleaning which can achieve excellent results.
