The DTS-30 Dynamic Testing System is a servo-hydraulic testing machine utilizing digital control of a high performance servo valve to provide
accurate loading wave shapes up to 100 Hz. The DTS-30 can be operated in tension, compression dynamic loading and is suited to testing
a diverse range of materials such as asphalt, soil, unbound granular materials, fibres and plastics. The DTS-30 is underpinned by Pavetest’s
leading edge CDAS digital controller, TestLab software and a full complement of accessories, hardware and software in perfect unison.
The DTS-30 Dynamic Testing System is compact, fully integrated, user and environmentally friendly.

The DTS-30 fatigue rated, servo-hydraulic actuator utilizes metal labyrinth bearings and seals.
The labyrinth bearings and seals are designed to reduce friction and maintain low operating temperatures.
The bearings experience little-to-no wear, operate at high speeds and offer a long service life.
A bottom loading machine. Before this current crop of universal testing machines, many dynamic testing machines were bottom loading.
More recently, the Asphalt Mixture Performance Tester (AMPT) changed the mindset of the testing community by highlighting the benefits of a
bottom loading machine.
Portable temperature control unit. The temperature control unit attaches to the test chamber using a magnetic seal and can be wheeled
away when not required or for servicing. It can be removed without dismantling the machine or disrupting the testing program.
