Asphalt Testing Equipment
Asphalt testing equipment from Karol-Warner is used for evaluating aggregate/bituminous mixtures, compacted Marshall and Superpave® specimens, and cores obtained from asphalt pavement.
Because of its durability and versatility, asphalt is the most widely used material in highway construction. Characteristics such as strength, theoretical specific gravity, air void content, density, and permeability help predict the performance and endurance of asphalt. Karol-Warner offers the following asphalt testing supplies:
- Mix Design Testing evaluates compacted asphalt specimens to measure load and flow rate (stress and strain) to predict the performance of the asphalt mix design.
- Specific Gravity Testing determines the theoretical maximum specific gravity so that air voids, absorption, and compaction target values can be calculated.
- Asphalt Permeameters use the falling head method to assess the permeability of asphalt cores and laboratory compacted samples.
- Wheel Tracker Sample Trimming Jig mounts to most core saws and secures an asphalt sample for cutting samples used in the Loaded Wheel Tracking (LWT) test.
