Bitumen Safety

Hycontrol offers customised bitumen safety systems tailored to meet the specific requirements of your site.

As the number one supplier in the UK for complete bitumen monitoring systems, Hycontrol has supplied every major quarry company and bitumen tank manufacturer in the UK. Hycontrol has won numerous industry awards for designing and manufacturing systems to improve site health & safety, reduce waste and improve efficiency.

Hycontrol has designed its systems in accordance with safety guidelines and codes of practice issued by Eurobitume, formerly known as the Refined Bitumen Association (RBA). The system design is centred on achieving maximum safety. Working to this standard is essential if bitumen overspill and incident numbers are to be reduced and eventually eliminated. Hycontrol has extensively promoted RBA safety guidelines in the quarry industry; since the introduction of RBA guidance, bitumen accident numbers have decreased significantly over the last decade. 

Typical system features include level gauges, high-level and ultimate high-level alarms, LED traffic lights and ground-level test facilities. Systems deploy group alarms for ultimate high (red) and high-level (amber) alarms. These work independently of each other, activated by either a high-temperature-proof TDR or RF probe. Each beacon has its siren also with different tones to differentiate between them. As well as being compliant with current RBA standards, ATEX options are also available if required.

Hycontrol not only manufactures their systems but also install, support and service them, providing a turn-key solution for the lifetime of the product. Few other suppliers can offer this level of full service. All Hycontrol sales and service personnel are bitumen safety trained and carry quarry safety passports.
