Bitumen content furnace by ignition method
- 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).
