Anton Paar Products Applications
Application CLA 5: Preventing Bitumen Surface Skin
ASTM D92 Appendix X1 describes a technique to prevent the surface skin formation when testing the flash point of asphalts with an open cup flash point tester like CLA 5.
Application PNR 12: Penetration of Bitumen
The Penetrometer PNR 12 is suitable for the determination of the consistency of highly viscous material like bitumen. Customized with various test kits it will perform tests according to different standards, with manual or automatic surface detection.
Improve Digestion Quality and Save Money – Microwave Digestion rules out Open Digestion
Reliable elemental analysis results need robust sample preparation to destroy sample matrices or to separate matrix from analytes. The sample preparation step is by far the most error-prone and critical step of the analytical procedure.
Microwave-assisted Solvent Extraction (MAE) of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons from Bitumen Samples
The determination of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) in bitumen samples is a typical task in the petroleum industry. With Monowave 450, which is specially designed for MAE, this process can be shortened from more than 12 hours to about 10 minutes.
Petrochemicals - Viscosity Measurement of Asphalt Binder and Bitumen with RheolabQC
The RheolabQC with the unique air-cooled Peltier temperature device C-PTD 180/AIR/QC is perfectly suited to determine the apparent viscosity of asphalt binders, bitumen and asphalts according to ASTM D4402, AASHTO T316 and DIN EN 13302 up to +180 °C
