Asphalt Binder Analyser

Clear

The ABA Asphalt Binder Analyzer is used to determine the binder content of hot mix asphalt/bituminous mixtures by the method of loss on ignition. The system combines a sophisticated furnace and weighing system to continuously measure the weight loss of a bituminous mixture during combustion and automatically calculates its binder content at the end of the test.

Supplied complete with 2 specimen baskets with a safety cover and a carrying tray, a fork to catch the tray, a cooling cage and 3m metal exhaust pipe. The Metal Stand for TAS-0060 should be ordered separately.
