General description
General description
These ovens are used for measuring the effect of heat and air on a moving film of semi-solid bituminous materials. The internal chamber is made from stainless steel, insulated with fiberglass or similar, with an external frame made from engine-turned stainless steel and a door with a centrally located window.
Special attention has been given to the safety features which conform to CE requirements. 
The oven is supplied complete with flow meter, ASTM 13C thermometer and 8 heat resistant glass containers (64 m high x 140 mm diameter).
The oven must be connected to a compressed air source supplying 2 bar minimum presure. If not available in the laboratory we recommend to order Diphgram pump (see accessories).
 
Two versions are available:
  • 81-PV1612 conforming to ASTM/AASHTO standards
  • 81-PV1622 conforming to EN standard
The ASTM and EN versions are basically identical, except for a small difference of the internal dimensions of the testing chamber.
