A high quality machine for indentation test with advanced auto data logging software to record and present the results via real time charts
The Indentation Testing Machine CRT-IND for determining the resistance to penetration of road and mastic asphalt by loading a cylindrical pin and measuring the indentation in a sample over a given time.
The CRT-IND comprises of a frame incorporating a stainless steel water bath with drain facility, method of applying the 500 Newton load and means of recording the test results.
* Immersion heater is not included but can be offered as additional equipment.
The apparatus conforms to the requirements of EN 12697-20.The maximum nominal size of the aggregates should be less or equal to 16 mm.
It comes with optional auto data logging software which saves test data files, shows a graphical representation of the test in real time, reduces operator involvement and thus eliminates chances of error.
CRT-INSOFT, A Cooper Research Technology designed and developed software package that allows for the automatic capture to pc of test data from the indent test at the two test temperatures* and over the four time durations. The software shows a graphical representation of the test in real time, storing the data in text files that can subsequently be opened in Excel.
*Additional function allows the user to input a temperature between 5°C (or ambient if higher) and 95°C.
