NCAT Asphalt Content Furnace



Asphalt Technology

In collaboration with the National Centre for Asphalt Technology, Thermo Scientific developed a fast, accurate, environmentally-friendly, and cost-effective method for determining asphalt content.

For research, quality assurance or quality control, the Thermo Scientific asphalt content furnace is the ideal solution.

A 12-lab round robin field test has been conducted exclusively with the Thermolyne® NCAT asphalt content furnace by NCAT.

Results and proven performance are documented by NCAT. The Thermolyne NCAT asphalt content furnace has set the standard for the industry in the determination of asphalt content by the ignition method.

This system was an integral part of the drafting and eventual passage of the ignition method standard ASTM D6307, as well as AASHTO T308.

The Thermolyne NCAT asphalt content furnace provides asphalt content of bituminous paving mixtures, accurate to 0.11%.
