Asphalt Binder Analyzer by CARBOLITE GERO

The ABA 7/35B has been designed for measuring the asphalt binder content of hot mix asphalt (HMA) using loss on ignition, in accordance with ASTM D6307-10, AASHTO T 308-10 and BSEN 12697-39:2012.

The integral microprocessor controlled weighing and calculation system can be configured in order to allow variations to the standard asphalt binder test method. Test result reports can be obtained in both software and printed formats. The production of noxious waste fumes is minimized by the high temperature afterburner. The asphalt binder analyzer is supplied complete with two sets of sample baskets.
