FOR ASPHALT SURFACING DIVISION 40 INDEX ... B. Pressure Distributor The bitumen distributor shall be pneumatictired, selfpropelled, and shall have a capacity of not less than eight hundred (800) gallons. ... equipped with a tachometer calibrated in revolutions per minute.
The emulsion distributor is the most important piece of equipment on a prime treatment project. Its purpose is to uniformly apply A EP to a surface at a specified rate and to maintain this appliion rate regardless of changes in grade or direction of movement. Calibration and adjustment of the asphalt distributor are described in ASTM D2995.
B. Equipment Calibration Before placing slurry seal, furnish the Engineer with a calibration of the slurry mixing equipment. Materials Ensure that the materials to be used meet the following specifiions: A. Aggregate Ensure that the aggregate used in emulsified asphalt slurry .

temperature of the asphalt emulsion in the distributor, a calibrated dipstick to enable liters (gallons) of asphalt binder per millimeter (inch) of depth to be read at any time, and a bitumeter that has been calibrated to accurately measure the distance traveled and the speed in m/min (ft/min) when spraying. Emulsion Scrub Broom
Asphalt emulsion bond coats glue layers of pavement together, give pavements durability by helping them resist shear forces. Here we'll talk about why you need to tack before paving. By Tom Kuennen Asphalt emulsion bond coats stop delamination and movement of conventional or thin asphalt overlays when they are placed over bituminous, Portland cement concrete [.]
When using a computerized asphalt distributor for strip/spot seal coat, the asphalt quantity can be obtained from the gauges on the equipment and strapping is only necessary for calibration purposes. If payment is by volume, it is necessary to strap the distributor to keep an accurate record of the amount of asphalt that is used on the project.
Proper maintenance and calibration of the nuclear density device are essential to acquiring reliable measurements of the inplace density of compacted asphalt concrete. This part of the test method adds specific minimum requirements to the standardization and calibration procedures suggested and/or recommended by the device manufacturer.
Liquid asphalt can be calibrated and weighed by a separate holding vessel that is supported on multiple load cells and calibrated with a known weight. In order to ensure the accuracy of the liquid asphalt metering system, it is mandatory that the hot mix producer runs a calibration check on their asphalt metering on a periodic basis.
asphalt compactors, DWT, digital load measurement on a wide range of products; Calibration Services – Italy. Our Headquarters in Italy offers a wide range of calibration services and we have a dedied team trained to perform verifiions of many different types of measurement:
Know the temperature of asphalt cement being used for Tack coat. Measuring tack levels. Stick the distributor before and after spraying tack Use calibration chart for Distributor to determine amount of asphalt in truck before and after spraying. Formula for finding the length of a tacked road.
· Asphalt used for calibration purposes must be tested to ensure specifiion compliance. Both calibration samples shall be mixed at design bitumen ratio and at the design mineral filler content using the specified method. Calculate the amount of mineral filler based on actual bin percentages.
Alloys, Brokerage, Calibration and Asphalt
An asphalt emulsion is a combination of asphalt binder (asphalt cement), water, and a very small amount of emulsifying agent (normally less than 1 percent). Typical asphalt emulsions consist of 55 to 70 percent asphalt binder, depending on the grade of the emulsion. Most grades of asphalt emulsion used for tack coat appliions contain ...
calibration testing is to be completed at an asphalt content of % based on the dry weight of aggregate (% asphalt content based on a total mix basis). Three samples are to be prepared separately by adding grams of asphalt to the aggregate in order to obtain the desired asphalt content of % based on the dry weight of the aggregate.
Calibrate equipment such as asphalt distributors, scales, batching equipment, spreaders and similar equipment within 12 months of their use. If the calibration expires during project, recalibrate the equipment before work can continue. Bituminous Distributor Provide a self propelled distributor with pneumatic tires of such size and
Asphalt Technology (NCAT) Pavement Test Track, typically undergo inhouse calibration before being sent to customers; however, this process allows the gauges to have some variability. These gauges have calibration factors associated to them by hanging a known weight along their central axis.
If emulsified asphalt is used for prime, tack or flush coat, the Contractor shall dilute the emulsified asphalt with water if required by the Engineer. CONSTRUCTION Distributor The Contractor shall supply a selfpowered pressure asphalt distributor in accordance with the following requirements:

Asphalt Distributor Performance Features: • 8' to 16' ( to m) Fully Circulating Extending Spraybar • Automatic InCab Controls • Internal Spraybar Valves • 400 gallons per minute (1,514 lpm), Viking Asphalt Pump • EnviroFlush Clean Out System • StraightLine Start and Stop • Accurate Appliion Regardless of Spraybar
· This paper describes the development of a bench calibration testing procedure that uses a digital image correlation system to determine system gauge factors (SGFs) for two types of asphalt strain transducers. The calibration results clearly show that each transducer has a unique SGF that should be used when transforming collected strain data.
