There are two versions of this piece of equipment—the Standard WheelTracker and the Premium WheelTracker. (The Premium WheelTracker is shown above.) For more information, please contact us at 1-877-TROXLER.
The WheelTracker is manufactured out of about 93 percent stainless steel and it is used to test the wearability and water damage potential of asphalt mixes.
By simulating roadway conditions in a controlled environment and using a Linear Value Displacement Transducer to measure deformation of a sample over 11 equally spaced points at 158 lbs. of pressure (adjustable).
The testing environment temperature can be set between 15°C-70°C and cannot be set less than room temperature. The machine has three testing modes: wet, dry, and an optional air heat. The whole system is controlled by a PC & PLC system with easy-to-use, custom-designed software on a Windows computer.
