The ABA 7/35B is designed to measure the asphalt binder content of hot mix asphalt (HMA) using loss on ignition, in accordance with AASHTO T 308-10, ASTM D6307-10 & BSEN 12697-39:2012.
The integral microprocessor controlled weighing and calculation system is configurable to allow variations to the standard asphalt binder test method. Test result reports are available in both printed and software format. The high temperature afterburner minimises the production of noxious waste fumes. The asphalt binder analyzer is supplied complete with 2 sets of sample baskets.
