“Insulation” is a fairly recent term in the hauliers’ vocabulary, but it quickly gained great importance in the bitumen transport business. Our insulation is certified by DIN 70001, which defines the technical characteristics of the equipment.
For example, it is mandatory in the northern Italian region to transport asphalt for public contracts.
Few would choose to adopt it for their upfits. We did it, because the insulation certification is extremely strict but guarantees a very high-quality standard. Bitumen loses very few degrees after several hours of transport, even in the middle of winter.
This allows to decrease the loading temperature, resulting in a significant decrease in natural gas consumption.
