Model 4640 B Thin Layer Density Gauge
Model 4640 B Thin Layer Density Gauge
Model 4640-B features patented technology to measure the density of thin asphalt and concrete layers from 2.5 to 10 cm thick (1 to 4 inches) without influence from underlying material. The 4640-B is specified by many state DOTs, government agencies and contractors as the best test method for determining the density of bituminous overlays.
Eliminates the need for nomographs and manual corrections: Variations in the density or composition of the base material do not affect the test results. No field calculations or charts are needed.
Operator selected depth of measurement: Enter the thickness of the overlay into the gauge memory and then accurately measure the overlay density (compaction) without influence from the underlying material.
Data storage is computer compatible: Store up to 750 readings by location and project number. Transfer stored readings to a printer or computer via RS232 interface. Additional site information can also be stored with each test.
The 4640-B meets or exceeds all applicable ASTM Standards.
Calibration: The Troxler 4640-B calibration process is unique. Your test results will improve and job penalties can be eliminated. For special materials, up to 11 field calibrations can be performed and stored.
User friendly: The operator will find the 4640-B very easy to use. It is a menu driven gauge, prompting the operator through the test procedure.
