Gyrotronic Superpave Gyratory Compactor
Description of Gyrotronic Superpave Gyratory Compactor
This Gyratory Compactor, entirely developed and is used to simulate and reproduce the real compaction conditions under actual road paving operations, hence determining the compaction properties of the asphalt. Such compaction is achieved in a fully automatic way, by combining the rotary action and the vertical resultant force applied by a mechanical head. The Compactor comprises a highly rigid steel frame ensuring excellent angle control. Load is applied by an electro-pneumatic cylinder, servo-controlled by a precision pressure regulator; the height is measured by a linear transducer. Gyratory motion is generated by an eccentric high precision system allowing an easy set up with precision and constant angle of gyration. The rotation speed is controlled by an inverter through on board computer control. Using the proper perforated mould, the Compactor is able to run tests also on cold emulsified asphalt mix. The acquired results are also employed in the investigation of volumetric and mechanical characteristics of the asphalt mix.
