Controls Group highlights Servopac and PaveAnalyser
The Servopac is the latest instrument from Controls Group
Controls Group, an Italian testing equipment business specifically for the construction industry, is highlighting two products specifically for the highways sector – a bitumen analyser and a gyratory compactor.
In March last year, Controls bought the Australian business IPC Global and will showcase its new subsidiary’s Servopac 76-PV20A02, a fully automatic, servo-controlled gyratory compactor designed for asphalt mixes.
Users can set the needed axial stress, exceeding the requirements of AASHTO (American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials), ASTM (American Society for Testing and Materials), Europe’s EN standards as well as Australia’s AS standards.
Highlighted also will be products from PaveLab Systems, another Controls Group subsidiary. The PaveAnalyser exractor 75-PV50A15 uses solvents to separate and extract bitumen, filler and aggregates from asphalt. It can determine the binder content or to recover, using a rotary extractor, a representative bitumen sample that can be used for other bitumen tests including penetration and softening points.
