Asphalt Lab Supplies
There are many forms of asphalt testing equipment used to test various aspects of asphalt mixtures prior to and during road construction and related projects, as well as testing the road surface after work has been done. This is done to asphalt mixes meet industry standards.
Some common asphalt lab supplies used for testing are:
- pH Meters
- Infrared thermometers
- Thermocouple data loggers
What Are Asphalt Lab Supplies Used For?
Various tests are conducted on asphalt to ensure its quality. The most common types of tests are: physical tests, chemical tests and rheological tests.
Beakers, buckets, funnels, graduated cylinders, and sieves are necessary for conducting physical tests such as the particle size distribution test and the gradation test.
pH meters and thermometers are necessary for conducting chemical tests such as the acidity test and the softening point test.
Lastly, rheological tests such as the marshall stability test and the ductility test require a viscometer, a device that measures the viscosity of a fluid.
Thermocouples, infrared thermometers and viscometers are all common asphalt lab supplies. Thermocouples are used to measure the temperature of asphalt samples during testing. Infrared thermometers are used to measure the temperature of asphalt paving machines. Viscometers are used to measure the viscosity of asphalt binders.
Asphalt lab supplies are essential for any laboratory conducting tests on asphalt. Without these supplies, it would be impossible to accurately test the quality of asphalt.
Industries That Need Asphalt Testing Equipment
There are many industries that need asphalt testing equipment.
Paving companies need this equipment to test the quality of their asphalt products.
Construction companies need this equipment to test the quality of the asphalt they are using on construction projects.
Asphalt testing is essential for any industry that uses asphalt products. Without accurate testing, it would be impossible to ensure the quality of these products.
