Designed to simulate HMA pavement stripping mechanisms
Shorter test times than current moisture sensitivity tests
Results in less than one day
Tests can be performed at realistic pressures similar to pressures produced by vehicle tyres
Testing is automatic and monitored by sensors
Data can be stored and transferred to a PC for evaluation and archiving
Fast, Accurate, Innovative
The M.i.S.T. is a standalone unit that consists of a pressurized chamber that pushes and pulls water through a compacted asphalt sample, simulating the action of an automobile tyre on the road.
The tests can be performed at different pressures and temperatures to replicate different traffic and environmental conditions. The unit is completely automatic and results are ready in as little as four hours.
Simply place your asphalt core sample in the M.i.S.T. testing chamber, select your test parameters, press start and the unit does the rest. Upon completion of the test, the asphalt core is taken out of the testing chamber and evaluated for susceptibility to moisture damage.
