There is no better way to complement the quality of the Troxler Superpave™ compactor than by using the best quality laboratory heating oven. Ovens from Despatch Industries will meet or exceed your expectations for a busy asphalt design and testing lab.
Since 1902, Despatch Industries has produced heat process equipment for a variety of industries, including ovens for asphalt testing. The LBB series from Despatch is designed specifically for Superpave™ mixtures and is now available through Troxler.
The Troxler I-FIT (Illinois - Flexibility Index Tester) machine is completely contained on a rolling portable test frame that is approximately 31.5" L x 20" D x 34" H. The fixture is designed to apply load to a Semi-Circular Beam (SCB) specimen through a pivoting head and roller bearing pins. The system is designed to meet the most current standard for TP105 Illinois.
Servo Hydraulic Actuator
The system includes a 4500lbf actuator with low friction seals. It utilizes closed loop feedback from the load cell and magneto restrictive position sensors for stroke and load line displacement (LLD).
Load Line Displacement Measurement
The LLD position sensor utilizes a non-contacting method to measures displacement of SCB specimen at the loading head.
Controls and Software
It includes a custom program for I-FIT test operation. Every test has a text data file created for easy to use post processing as well as printouts from the test during operation. In addition, a Multi-Test Language (MTL) compiler is provided to allow the user to create custom programs or modify custom programs and store as a callable application.
The Troxler Disk-shaped Compact Tension and Texas Overlay Test Machine (DCT - OT) offers the following features.
The IDEAL Plus offers precise rate control for testing.
Load Line Displacement (LLD) Measurement
Customized for quick and accurate sample cutting!
The Testquip Tile Saw is customized with a 16" blade for 6" cuts. Once the specimen is inserted, simply slide the table left or right in the preconfigured thickness offsets (50mm and 62 mm default).
The Testquip Brick Saw features a 0.050" thick 10" blade to meet test standard notch cut thickness requirements. A custom spring clamp fixture is mounted to the back of the table for quick and secure sample loading. It includes spacer block to allow cutting SCB (15mm default) and DCT specimen notch cuts without adjusting the blade.
