Can we help you?

The PAV's consist of an ASME-Code stainless steel pressure vessel, in a stainless steel cabinet with encased band heaters. This PAV system meets the demands of busy labs with high test volumes.

This state-of-the-art system meets all ASTM and AASHTO requirements and includes a platinum RTD device to ensure accurate temperature values to ±0.1°C. A pressure relief valve and high-temperature thermal shut-down are included as standard safety features.

The Pressure Aging Vessel uses a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) for complete control and monitoring of all test processes. This easy-to-use system completes a test in three easy steps: press the heat button, insert specimens when prompted, and press the age button. The stainless steel cabinet measures 30 x 20 x 24 in. (760 x 508 x 610 mm),WxDxH. The ATS PAV includes a set of ten TFOT specimen pans, a sample holder with a lifting handle, and a specimen handling tool. Additional MOA-2 TFOT pans can be ordered as necessary. Bottled compressed air with a pressure of at least 325psi (2.24mPa) and a regulator must be user-provided. Inquire for units equipped with a modem to enable remote control and data access. Est.
