BBR – Bending Beam Rheometer

STANDARDS: ASTM D6648 / AASHTO T313

Bending Beam Rheometer is engineered to perform flexural tests on asphalt binder and similar specimens. These tests consist of a constant

force being applied to a specimen in a chilled bath in order to derive specific rates of deformation at various temperatures.

TEST FRAME:

– Three-point bend test apparatus

– Integral stainless steel frictionless construction

– Load cell 500 g with mechanical overload protection

– Linear Variable Displacement Transducer (LVDT) 0.25 in (6,35 mm)

– Two independent platinum RTD for precise temperature control

– Liquid bath:

stainless steel construction

temperature range: -40 to 25°C

mechanical refrigeration system

cooling coil located within the test bath

no pumping required. Cools Ethylene Glycol – water – methanol

mix (recommended for safety) to -40°C.

– Compressed air: 0.34 MPa clean, dry air supply required

– CE certified model

SOFTWARE:

– Control, acquisition and analysis software

– BBR Software version 4.16W

– Computer interface card

– Menu driven program, mouse compatible

– Daily calibration routines

– Displays and graphs real time load, displacement and bath temperature

The BBR System includes: complete calibration kit with carrying

case, 5 specimen moulds with accessories, PC, accessories.

Power supply: 230V 1ph 50/60Hz

Weight: 110 kg approx.
