Multiple Testing Options

The equipment can handle different types of samples (cylindrical, beam, gyratory, Marshall, Hveem, and roadway cores) and offers additional options like the Cold Plate for low-temperature testing and a Chiller for fatigue testing. This makes it a highly adaptable solution for various testing needs.

Temperature Control and Submersion System

The temperature-controlled water submersion system and the ability to perform tests from -5°C to 80°C ensure that the APA Jr. can simulate a wide range of climatic conditions to evaluate the performance of asphalt mixes under different weather scenarios.

Precision Measurements

The APA Jr. boasts high precision in its measurements, with the capability to measure up to .00001 of a millimeter, using systems like the Linear Position Transducer and LVDT’s for rut depth measurement. This precision is vital for accurate assessment and quality control.

Ease of Operation and Data Management

The integration with laptops and output to Microsoft Excel facilitates easy operation and management of test data, which is crucial for documentation and further analysis.

Comprehensive Calibration and Customization

The system’s capacity to be calibrated with high precision and its booster regulator for high-pressure testing allow customization to specific project needs, enhancing its utility in a professional setting.

These features make the APA Jr. a robust and flexible tool for an asphalt QC manager, ensuring that they can meet a broad spectrum of testing requirements while maintaining high standards of accuracy and reliability in asphalt quality control.
