Automatic Quality Control for Asphalt Plants.
The Automatic Quality Control System for Asphalt Plants utilizes the Remote Truck Sampling Device (RTSD) to safely capture a representative sample from a haul vehicle.
The sample is deposited into a Field Ignition Oven (FIO) where the sample is weighed, burned, and re-weighed.
A test report produces the asphalt content of the sample.
The burned sample is deposited into the Field Gradation Unit which perform a complete sieve analysis of the sample.
All test data is displayed on an excel spread sheet and sent to the Asphalt Plant Control House.
