emulsifier tank er

MODENA MACCHINE COSTRUZIONI STRADALI SRL ‘SERIE ER/CR’ emulsion tanks are systems fixed directly onto the vehicle chassis, for transporting bitumen emulsion from the plant to the construction site, and then spreading the material by means of an injection bar.



The tank ensures the maintenance or heating of the emulsion by means of burners fuelled by LPG or diesel.

The tank can be insulated to prevent heat loss. There are different tank capacities, so that they can be adapted in size and weight to the vehicle chosen for transport.

The ER/CR series tanks are equipped with various automatic systems controlled from the truck cab.

Various accessories can be fitted to the spraying system, such as computers for ground metering of the bitumen emulsion, a water transport tank, systems for cleaning the system with non-dispersing recovery of the washing liquid, and others to facilitate work.

These series of emulsion tanks are the ultimate in evolution applied to the application of bitumen emulsion

Bitumen emulsion sprayer with heated tank for mounting on chassis truck, with capacity of 1,000 to 10,000 litres of emulsion. Consisting of:

  • Water-cooled three-cylinder diesel engine with electric start.
  • Emulsion pump coupling, boom lifting and widening, operated via hydraulic system with control in electric panel in vehicle cab.
  • Engine-hydraulic power unit, housed on base frame, positioned between vehicle cab and tanker (to be verified with truck bodywork).
  • Emulsion pump, gear-driven with a capacity of 100 litres/min, self-priming with BY-PASS pressure control valve, with reversibility of direction of rotation.
  • Bar applied to support rails for lifting from the ground and height adjustment, positioned under the vehicle.
  • Hydraulically expandable spray bar with 4.00 m ground clearance with 10 nozzles type ES32 5 mm hole with 400 mm pitch. The nozzle drive controls are positioned on a fixed console in the cab of the vehicle.
  • Bar consisting of:
    – Fixed central part with 6 nozzles, each open and closed by air control, with total ground clearance of 2.40 m, the nozzles opening and closing will be simultaneous. The nozzles can each be excluded manually by means of a ball valve located on the nozzle itself, for reduced-width passes.
    – Two nozzles on each side of the fixed boom. The nozzles open or close automatically when the spinner is actuated.
    – Recirculation of the emulsion within the boom and system with return of the emulsion to the tank automatically activated when the nozzles close.
  • Spray lance.
  • Hose reel for the hand lance hose
  • Tank for cleaning the emulsion circuit without spilling the cleaning agent outside, with cleaning fluid reuse system.
  • Pneumatic cleaning/working selection.
    Diesel burner.
  • Cylindrical emulsion containment tank with steel top hatch for emulsion loading, rear inspection and cleaning opening, side cap for emptying, splash guards.
  • Emulsion capacity 1,000 up to 10,000 litres. The tank is placed directly on the truck chassis.
  • Emulsion quantity control inside the emulsion tank by float with external index.
  • Dimensions: Truck dimensions to be checked.


  • Insulation of the emulsion tank.
