  • Temperature accuracy of 0.2%
  • 15 kN static axial load capacity
  • 13.5 kN dynamic axial load capacity
  • 50 mm (± 25 mm) stroke
  • 250 kPa confining pressure capacity
  • Frequencies up to 70 Hz
  • Modular design with accurate and easy to use software and electronics
  • Meets the NCHRP 9-19, 9-29, AASHTO TP79, AASHTO T342/TP62
  • Optional fixtures for range of Asphalt tests, including dynamic complex modulus, flow time, flow number, indirect tension, beam flexural fatigue, and direct tension tests

The AMPT-15 is servo-hydraulic Asphalt Mixture Performance Tester designed to perform dynamic modulus, flow number and flow time tests as specified by NCHRP, AASHTO and other relevant standards.  The AMPT-15 is designed to maximize the test efficiency through intuitive design and innovative software.

 

The tests are performed at a range of temperatures and frequencies to simulate the traffic loading and environmental conditions. The test results are used as design inputs in the mechanistic pavement mix design. The AMPT-15 automatically performs the specified standard tests with minimal user intervention. 

 

GCTS offers a remote test monitoring package allowing the user to check the status of any test via a smartphone app.
