Ignition method reduces testing time and costs.
Samples up to 5000 g.
No exposure to harmful solvents.
Patented ceramic filter reducing emissions by 95%.
Automatic and manual mode.
Automatic weight compensation for each sample
This unique furnace automatically detects endpoint within
.01% of the sample weight. In the automatic mode, the
endpoint automatically is detected; the software ends the
test, prints out the results and beeps. In the manual
mode, the unit begins to beep but will continue to test
until the user presses “stop” to end it. Once the “stop”
button has been pressed, the door will unlock and the
results will be printed.

The unit provides asphalt content of bituminous paving mixtures
accurate to 0.11%, with a fast, environmentally friendly, and cost
effective method of determining asphalt content.
A 1200-1800 g sample of asphalt can be tested in 30-45 minutes
using this Content Furnace.
MATEST Furnace has an internal scale, which automatically
monitors the sample weight throughout the ignition process, saving
valuable technician time and increasing productivity in the lab.
The ignition method replaces the costly and time consuming solvent
The automatic door-lock feature prevents opening the chamber door
during the critical test time for operator safety and testing integrity.
Our System has the capability to accept positive or negative
correction factors for use with mixes containing hydrated lime.
