ABA Asphalt Binder Analyzer

Product Code

UTAS-0039         ABA Asphalt Binder Analyzer, 380 V

Standards

EN 12697-39; AASHTO TP53; ASTM D6307

The UTEST ABA Asphalt Binder Analyzer is used to determine the asphalt 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.
