Tar Kettle

Tar Kettle – Veritech Consulting Engineering, LLC.

Tar Kettles are useful pieces of equipment but must also be handled with care and respect.  Temperatures heating the tar (to allow for flow through the system) can reach in excess of 500 degrees.  If not handled properly, this system can result in  fires or severe burns to the operators.  Although the system is based on a relatively simple concept, the maintenance, operation and design of the tar kettle plays a key role in safe operation.

Veritech engineers have experience in evaluating the design and operation of tar kettles to determine the root cause of an accident.  Contact the experts at Veritech to help you evaluate the design, operation and maintenance of your tar kettle.
