- Compact design
- Easy usage
- Fine finish
- Generally the test is applicable to hot mix designs using bitumen and aggregates upto a maximum size of 25mm.
- In this method, the resistance to plastic deformation of cylindrical specimen of bituminous mixture is measured when the same is loaded at periphery at 5cm per min.
- This test procedure is used in designing and evaluating bituminous paving mixes.
- The test procedure is extensively used in routine test programmers for paving jobs.
- There are two major features of the Marshall method of designing mixes namely. a) densityvoids analysis, b) Stability-flow tests.
- The Marshall stability of mix is defined as a maximum load carried by a 0 compacted specimen.

- Integrated designs
- Auto open ventilation to control exhaust more efficiently
- Teflon coated inside for easy cleaning and corrosion resistant usage
- Digital display of smoke optical transmittance and density
- Pre-heated apparatus for quick start up and accurate data acquiring
- Safe blowout panel for safety
- Weighing sensor for enabling mass loss rate accurately
Ductility Testing Apparatus
|Temperature Range||5 to 30 deg C|
|Rate||50 mm/minute -2.5 mm per minute|
|Range||23 C to 27 C|
|Movement Speed||5,0.2 RPM|
- Tough construction
- Minimal maintenance cost
- Easy to use
- In flexible pavement construction, bitumen binders are used. It is important that bituminous material forms ductile thin film around the aggregates, which serves as a binder
- The binder material not of sufficient ductility renders previous pavement surface and leads to development of cracks
- Therefore it is important to carry out the ductility tests on bituminous material. Ductility is defined as distance in cms
- The apparatus consists of a Water bath with a thermostatic heater, and a circulating pump to maintain uniform water temperature.
- One half of the briquette moulds in fixed on a fixed plate in the water bath, the other half of the briquette mould is fixed to a carrier which slides over a rotating threaded shaft with a clutch.
- The motor and gears to rotate the shaft are housed in a cabinet fixed above the other and of the bath.
- Control switches for motor, stirrer, heater and indicator lamps are fixed at a convenient place on the water bath.
