Bitumen is a natural hydrocarbon mixture of hydrocarbons heavier than pentane. It is a general term for naturally occurring mixtures of solid, liquid, and gaseous hydrocarbons that exist in the earth’s crust.
Bitumen packages are used to transport bitumen from the point of extraction to the destination. They are usually made from steel drums, Bulk, Felxitank or jumbo bags.
In the packing process, to solve these problems and make the cost lower, it’s necessary to change some technological methods. It will do good for the environment too. It’s so wasteful to use a lot of material and energy in order to make drums or bulk containers. If jumbo bags or drums are not good enough, consider making bulk containers instead of drums.

The penetration grade is an important parameter in the production of bitumen. It is a measure of the ease with which the bitumen can be penetrated by a given solvent, such as water. The penetration grade is measured as a percentage and it ranges from 0 to 100%. Bitumen with high penetration grade will penetrate solvents more easily than bitumen with low penetration grade.
