BITUMAX Pro is a high-precision ignition oven that can determine, in full automatic mode, the binder content of asphalt mixes in full conformance with the most common international standards. It combines an ignition oven with a continuous weighing system that monitors the loss of weight of the asphalt sample and automatically determines, at the end of the test, the binder content and percentage. An independently controlled auxiliary afterburner chamber significantly reduces the furnace emissions.

Efficient and maintenance-free

Ignition ovens offer an effective alternative to the traditional solvent extraction method. 

Fast, it takes less than 40 minutes to automatically calculate the binder content both on the mix and on the aggregate mix. And this, safely, without any need for solvents. 

BITUMAX Pro can run uninterrupted as it is almost maintenance free, whether at the end of a single test or of the test day.
