Asphalt Analysators

Polymer- and rubber modified binders. The modification of bitumen binders with rubber, additives or polymer in a state of art technology to improve lifetime, resistance against high traffic loads and many other quality requirements of asphalt and pavement constructions.

Extraction and separation of these mixtures so far was more or less difficult. The new Asphaltanalysator PG is our answer to these difficulties. The machine is equipped with a special mixing and collecting tool which allows as well as the extraction of rubber modified bituminous mixtures and standard asphalt material in one machine.

Solvents

The chemical liquid Trichloroethylene, which is in use for the separation and extraction of bituminous mixtures, is according to the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA) classified as Substance of very high concern (SVHC). The use of this solvent in the future will only be allowed under special handling conditions. The team of infraTest engineers is already working on this problem for the last five years. On the one hand we designed a concept in which we can easily adjust existing Asphaltanalysators to different kinds of solvents which are not classified as SVHC’s. On the other hand we developed the concept machine VERTE which can perform extractions with solvents made of renewable resources.

New options and upgrades of Asphaltanalysator Touchscreen

• Programming and storage of extraction of all extraction procedures

• Visuable on line test procedure

• Storage of all test parameters on hard drive and USB

• Trouble shooting via Internet

• Connection of other devices like balances

• Machine update / Solvent change via USB

Renewable resources made solvents

Our newest development is the Asphaltanalysator VERTE, which is currently under design for serial production. Based on the successful technology of the Asphaltanalysator ECOTEST this machine can be operated with non dangerous and renewable solvents like Methyloctanoate.

Equipped with a second solvent circle the device allows the extraction of all kind

of rubber materials using the new designed automatic decantation system. The

bituminous material will be separated through continuously mixing, washing and

solving. The rubber parts will be separated from the minerals and float due to their

lower density to the solvent surface. There they can easily be collected by the

special PG tool. The aggregates are stored in the washing chamber, filler material is

separated in the centrifuge. Bitumen and solvent will be divided from each other in

the solvent recovery as usual. All parts of the bituminous mixtures are dried during

the test procedure. The machine is equipped with the special collection tray PG

and the mixing tool. Centrifuge cups 20-0330, washing chamber 20-1112 or closing

lid 20-1106 have to be ordered separately.
