New asphalt tester from IPC Glocal division of CONTROLS
The new tester from IPC Global offers improved capabilities
CONTROLS says that the new AMPT Pro Asphalt Mixture Performance Tester from its IPC Global operation in Australia offers increased capabilities and features. This system is said to complement the array of technologies for asphalt and bitumen testing range from the group. The AMPT is a computer–controlled hydraulic testing machine designed to test a compacted asphalt mixture specimen. The system carries out tests using cyclic loading over a range of temperatures and frequencies. The device evaluates asphalt mixture properties to assess potential performance. Transportation agencies can use the AMPT to develop inputs for the structural design of flexible pavements and to obtain helpful information in monitoring mixes and performing quality assurance.
