Asphalt Binder Analyser

The Asphalt Binder Analyser CRT-ABA has user friendly design and is fully compliant with the latest standards

Cooper Technology is proud to offer the Asphalt Binder Analyser CRT-ABA. The ABA Asphalt Binder Analyser is used to determine the asphalt binder content of hot mix asphalt/bituminous mixtures by the method of loss on ignition. The Asphalt Binder Analyser combines a sophisticated furnace and weighing system to continuously measure the weight loss of a bituminous mixture during combustion and automatically calculate its binder content at the end of the test. It comes with an automatic door lock during testing which cannot be disabled by the interruption of the power supply once the test has commenced. Also, the independently controlled afterburner significantly reduces furnace emissions, as specified by the test standards.
