Smarter Roller Compactor
ASTM Standard D8079-16
The Asphalt Roller Compactor (ARC), now available through InstroTek, Inc., is the first unit developed based entirely on an electro-mechanical system. The compactor does not require hydraulic fluids or air pressure, which allows the users to produce repeatable and consistent samples. The asphalt slab produced with this compactor is much more representative; with aggregate orientation similar to samples compacted in the field.
This fully automatic and user-friendly system compacts using a segmented roller with alternating rotation, simulating the action of large rollers used for the compaction of asphalt pavements. The compacted slabs can be used for rut testing, cored for standard laboratory tests, or cut to obtain beam samples for beam fatigue testing.
