B005N Bitumen content furnace by ignition method

( Asphalt )

  • AASHTO T308-10
  • ASTM D6307-10
  • BSEN 12697-39:2012

The binder content of bituminous mixtures is one of the major properties related to pavement performance. In particular it affects the pavement's tendency to permanent deformation, fatigue life and susceptibility to moisture damage. Therefore, the measurement of this property is fundamentally important for quality control (QC), quality assurance (QA) and research purposes. In this context the ignition method can determine the binder content with high precision, offering a valid alternative to the solvent extraction methods.

It's a unit with:

  • An indipendently controlled afterburner with exhaust fan and vent reduces emissions.
  • Safety systems to ensure that the furnace door is kept closed during the test and that the heating elements are deactivated any time if the door is opened.
  • Cyber Plus Progress - 7'' colour touch-screen with smart interface.

Analysis can be made on a sample weighing maximum 5 kg and most tests are completed in 20 to 45 minutes (depending on the size of aggregates).

Supplied complete with 2 sample baskets with stands, hot sample safety guard, sample basket loading handle, printer paper rolls, calibration plate and protective mask. Gloves to be ordered separately.

Outer dimensions: 635x825x1214 mm
Inner dimensions: 350x445x260 mm
Power supply: 400V 3ph 50/60Hz 8500W
Max Temperature: 750 °C
Weight: 215 kg approx.

B005NI Same model as B005N but with 208V 60Hz
