Asphalt/Aggregate Testing -> Stripscan StripScan
StripScan™ an advanced device for measurement of liquid anti-strip additives in asphalt binder or asphalt mixtures. The device is fully automatic and the measurements are based on determination of pH levels by scanning the color index using a spectro photometer. The StripScan is equipped with heater and accurate controls. Once the unit reaches the correct temperature, an automatic five minute sampling process will measure and display the results on a large easy to read touch screen monitor.
How does it work?
An asphalt sample is heated to 280° F and placed in an automatic, microprocessor controlled sample chamber. A special pH test strip is automatically placed over the sample and the unit initiates the measurement. The test strip is then read by a Spectro-photometer scanner and analyzed for the existence and percentage of anti-strip liquid additive in the sample.
Smart innovative algorithms will detect contamination from external materials and
unauthorized tampering with the sample. The process is simple and requires very
little operator involvement.
