Product Details

Model: BBR-500

Standards: ASTM D6648;AASHTOT3143-09;JTGE20;T0627-2011


The bending beam rheometer is used for testing of the bending creep stiffness of asphalt binders under low temperature as per SHRP methods, which is used to evaluate the low temperature fracture characteristics of asphalt binders. The test results including low temperature creep stiffness S(t) and creep stiffness change rate m(t). 

The temperature is lowered from room temperature to -36°C by Peltier technology / compressor, and stirred by magnetic force, the temperature control accuracy is within 0.03°C. The deformation test accuracy of specimen is up to 0.155 microns, the loading force accuracy can reach up to 0.147 millinewtons (0.015 grams), and the load range can be continuously adjusted from 0-450 grams. RS232/IP/USB communication way available between computer and BBR, and the test reports can be output.
