These tests methods are used for quantitative determinations of bitumen in hot-mixed paving mixtures and paving samples for specification acceptance, service evaluation, control and research. They prescribe the solvent or solvents that can be used for the binder extraction and recovery.

The representative bitumen sample can be used to perform other tests such as penetration, softening point, etc.. Aggregates, including filler, are also separated and remain available for sample grading.

PAVELAB50 PRO Automatic Closed-system Asphalt Analyzer

IPC Global Product Overview

Operating principle

The asphalt sample (maximum 3.5 kg) is placed in a washing drum lined with a sinthered multilayer mesh with openings 0.063, 0.075 or 0.090 mm wide and it is fitted into the washing chamber. Bitumen and filler are separated from the sample by washing with solvent and ultrasonic motion. The mixture of filler / bitumen / solvent is then centrifuged and the filler is separated.

The aggregates and filler are dried by forced air circulation and the residue of solvent recovered by condensation.The remaining bitumen/solvent solution is distilled and separated in two different tanks. Part of the bitumen/solvent solution can be drained off before distillation and connected to a flask for use with a rotary evaporator to recover a bitumen sample for other tests. The clean distilled solvent is recycled for other extractions.

The Analyzer shall be connected to a suitable water cooling unit to feed the three different cooling coils of the apparatus (see Accessories).
