Upgrade your Model 3411 or 3401 Troxler nuclear gauge with the Advanced Control Unit. The ACU will transform an older gauge into a more modern gauge, very similar to the current Model 3430. Special functions are available at the press of a button. Offsets are applied with a simple series of keypresses - no more knobs and switches. Upgrade your Troxler gauge today with this authentic Troxler Advanced Control Unit to be sure to get only the best and most reliable parts, service and support.
A critical factor with the Superpave™ Gyratory Compactor (SGC) is the angle of gyration during the compaction cycle. The DAV II with Hot Mixed Simulator (HMS) is making the process of checking and adjusting the angle much easier and more reliable. Several years ago, the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) determined that a key factor in agreement between gyratory compactors was the internal mold angle of gyration.
Tom Brovold of Test Quip, Inc. worked with FHWA and invented the DAV specifically for this purpose. Now, the concept has been improved with the development of DAV II – HMS. Troxler has joined with Mr. Brovold to make this new device available for all compactor owners.
The DAV II with HMS works without mix (simulating mix properties). The DAV II can also be used with hot mixed asphalt. The Hot Mixed Simulator (HMS) replaces hot mixed asphalt to simulate the forces applied directly inside the compaction mold. An asphalt mix has a shear factor that is different for the type and size of aggregate being used.
The HMS measured angle needs to be compared to the angle measured with the actual hot mixed asphalt that will be produced to ensure the compactor is set with the appropriate angle of gyration. The DAV II is the only internal angle measuring device that gives you the option of measuring angle with or without hot mixed asphalt.
A single replaceable battery that will give the user years of service life powers the DAV II. Circuitry and mechanical parts are designed for the elevated temperatures encountered with hot mixed asphalt. The DAV II with HMS can be used in a cold gyratory mold or, preferably, in a hot mold. You do not use a cold mold when you compact specimens, so why use a cold mold during the angle check? Go ahead and use a hot mold, DAV II can take it!
Troxler gauge case wheels attach to the Troxler nuclear gauge shipping case (ALL 3400 series yellow molded cases) to allow for easy transport. Now you can easily move the gauge from the storage site to the vehicle and on the job site.
Now the simplest, fastest way to extrude your gyratory or Marshall specimen is available from Troxler. No electricity or hydraulics needed — the force of gravity and pressing down can extrude any specimen.
The Troxler Gravity Asphalt Specimen Extruder™ is designed to extrude specimens quickly, as fast as you can press down on the mold flange or delayed over any time needed to allow the specimen to cool. Extrude one quarter, one third, one half, or any portion of the specimen to allow for maximum cooling.
The Gravity Extruder works with any brand of gyratory compactor. Now you can use your compactor for what it was intended for — compacting specimens. Be more efficient by using the Troxler Gravity Extruder to extrude the last gyro specimen while you compact the next one.
Troxler now offers a truck box specifically designed for the safe transportation of nuclear density gauges. This transportation box mounts in the bed of a pickup truck near the tailgate. It is bolted down to prevent the case from falling out in case of an accident and to deter any would-be thieves. The aluminum box blends in with other toolboxes so as not to attract attention to the gauge shipping case while in transport. In addition to these benefits, this box tilts upright to allow the gauge user easy access to the gauge at the job site. No more climbing into the truck and bending to lift the gauge out of the case!
The TroxAlertTM Radiation Survey Meter serves as an inexpensive way to fulfill survey requirements for an ALARA (As Low As Reasonably Achievable) program. TroxAlertTM provides the basic tool to survey both storage areas and work sites to ensure your employees have a safe working environment.
TroxAlertTM detects alpha, beta, gamma, and X-ray radiation with a calibration based on the gamma emissions from a Cesium-137 source, traceable to NIST. Neutron sources can also be located with the TroxAlertTM by detecting the photon radiation given off from these sources. The TroxAlertTM meets guidelines established by the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission.

Windows® based companion to the Model 4140 and 4141 Gyratory Compactors.
GyroPave™ is the software companion to Troxler's Model 4140 and 4141 Gyratory Compactors. GyroPave provides a flexible and powerful tool to collect and process densification data from the gyratory compactor.
To request a copy of GyroPave software, please send your email request to John Kadwell at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you need assistance please call Troxler at 1-877-TROXLER.
Pave-IR Scan is the latest technology to provide the asphalt contractor a method for detecting thermal segregation in real time. This allows quick determination of any thermal segregation issues to ensure a high quality pavement. Pave-IR is a paver mounted scanning system consisting of a thermal temperature scanner which is mounted to the paver, but is out of the way of the crew. Real time data is displayed for the operator as well as stored project files which can be transferred to the office for reviewing and data processing using MOBA Pave Project Manager software.
Provides full coverage of entire paved surface.
Ensures compliance with most existing DOT temperature specification requirements.
Data is logged automatically and can be stored permanently.
View the paving program from a remote location on your computer when using eRoutes software.
More cost effective than infrared cameras.
System also records important information including paving speed and paver stops.
System can be moved from one machine to another.
Provides proof that material quality meets specifications.
