Highway pavements are essential for the safe, comfortable and rapid transportation of people & goods. Today, the increase of heavy vehicle traffic, loads and the evolution of asphalt (bitumen) mixtures have resulted in significant changes to asphalt mixture and pavement performance. IPC Global is launching a new Education Series about SuperPave or Performance-based testing, that was developed to understand and predict how mixes will perform within a pavement structure under an infinite combination of environmental and traffic conditions.

Understanding SuperPave type performance-based testing — IPC Global | CONTROLS Group (Spanish version)

Los pavimentos de las carreteras son esenciales para el transporte seguro, cómodo y rápido de personas y bienes. Hoy en día, el aumento del tráfico de vehículos pesados, las cargas y la evolución de las mezclas de asfalto (betún) han dado lugar a cambios significativos en la mezcla de asfalto y el rendimiento del pavimento. IPC Global está lanzando una nueva serie de educación sobre ensayo SuperPave basadas en el rendimiento, que fue desarrollada para comprender y predecir cómo se realizarán las mezclas dentro de una estructura de pavimento bajo una combinación infinita de condiciones ambientales y de tráfico.

Galileo — A Gyratory Compaction Revolution — IPC Global | CONTROLS Group

IPC Global has once again raised the bar for innovation, performance and design with the introduction of the radically innovative Galileo Gyratory Compactors.   Featuring Electromechanical Servoactuation (EmS) Technology, these next-generation systems are fully electromechanical, making them quick and easy to install. With no compressed air or hydraulic oil required, they are clean to operate, environmentally friendly and low maintenance.

Galileo & Galileo Research range of accessories — IPC Global | CONTROLS Group

Galileo and Galileo Research can be further enhanced with a wide range of useful accessories including the patented Internal Angle Measurement (ILS) device as well as cylinders, molds and distance plates compatible with all CONTROLS gyratory compactors.

DIscover the range

This video is a comprehensive overview of IPC Global's widest and most unique range including static and dynamic testing machines that cover all the applications needed by the most demanding laboratories.

PAVELAB Automatic closed-loop asphalt analyzer

Binder extraction and recovery is important for both determining the binder content and recovering a representative sample which can be used to perform other tests such as penetration, softening point, etc. The machine used is a Pavelab Systems product, by Controls.  

PAVELAB double wheel tracker - test in AIR to EN 12697-22, Procedure B

The wheel tracking test is used for determining the susceptibility of Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) to deform under load by measuring the rut depth formed by repeated passes of a loaded wheel at a fixed temperature.

Asphalt Mixture Performance Tester AMPT

IPC Global's AMPT was designed to perform, and has been approved for, the three asphalt tests of Superpave Projects 9-19 and 9-29 of the National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP). The AMPT complies with AASHTO TP79 Determining the Dynamic Modulus and Flow Number for Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA).

Shear Box Compactor PReSBOX

JliWJkJdo1E&t=2s PReSBOX compactor, developed collaboratively between IPC Global and Pioneer Road Services, provides the latest in asphalt specimen preparation and mix evaluation technology. It produces asphalt beams and cylinders with excellent homogeneity and particle orientation. The unique shearing action of the PReSBOX closely replicates the conditions under which asphalt is placed in the field and gives a good measure of workability.

Pneumatic Four Point Bend apparatus

Four Point Bend Apparatus is a stand-alone system for four-point fatigue life testing of asphalt beams subjected to repeated flexural bending.  Designed and Engineered specifically to meet EN12697-24D, EN12697-26B, AASHTO T321 and AG:PT/T233 (AST 03:2000) IPC Global's Pneumatic Four Point Bend Apparatus is the choice of leading asphalt researchers world wide.

Automatic triaxial cell

This triaxial cell is suitable for a range of materials including asphalt, soils and unbound granular materials. The Automatic Triaxial Cell allows for quick, simple and easy operation and has been developed to minimise disturbance to the sample and reduce heavy lifting. IPC Global have incorporated innovative pneumatic lift cylinders into the design. These are computer controlled and automatically raise and lower the cell wall to give you complete 360° access to the specimen.

PAVELAB Pivot automatic bitumen penetrometer

The penetration test is used as a measure of consistency. Higher values of penetration indicate softer consistency. PAVELAB SYSTEMS Pivot is able to perform this test automatically and it features a very accurate zero point determination to eliminate any operator error.
