General description
General description
The PAVELAB asphalt binder analyzer consists essentially of a high precision apparatus combining a ignition oven to a continuous weighing system to monitor the weight decrease of the asphalt sample and, automatically, to determine, at the test end, the binder content and percentage. An auxiliary afterburner chamber, independently controlled, significantly reduces the furnace emissions.
 
The PAVELAB Analyzer is supplied complete with double sample basket/safety cover, extraction fork and 3 meters of metal exhaust pipe.
