AQUABlack Foaming GunSize matters. Large bubbles that are formed when water is mixed with liquid asphalt quickly dissipate and leave an unmodified binder. Microbubbles are the key because they stay in the mix until it’s compacted. MAXAM’s MicroBubble™ technology uses 1,000 psi to far out-perform all other systems in microbubble formation to produce the highest quality WMA.

The AQUABlack® System costs significantly less than most of the WMA systems currently available. In some cases, half the price.

AQUABlack® retrofits any asphalt plant quickly and easily. It installs in just two days – you can get it done over the weekend with a two man crew. You can do it yourself, or have us do the installation for you. The unit comes completely assembled. Simply attach it to your A/C line, hook it up to a water source, install the control panel, and you’re ready to go.

The touch-screen Control Panel is mounted in the control house and easily connected to the metering system using multi-conductor cable. When the operator sets max tons on the control panel, the system automatically calculates the correct amount of water to be injected into the warm mix asphalt, and sets the water pump drive to the proper output rate. A mass flow meter monitors flow rate and sounds a warning if it goes out of the optimum range.

The AQUABlack® all stainless Foaming Gun comes with all required water hose and hot oil jumpers for installation. It is inserted into the existing a/c line just prior to entering the
drum. Access nozzle service ports means that no disassembly is required for inspection of your system.

The center convergence nozzle design provides more efficient foaming. It reduces the number of nozzles and the maintenance related to each. The high-pressure system enables low water-to-liquid-asphalt ratio during foaming. There are no moving parts in the foaming gun. We do not give each nozzle its own solenoid because fewer solenoids means fewer maintenance issues.
