SmartPave: Dynamic Shear Rheometer

The dynamic shear rheometers (DSR) SmartPave 92 and SmartPave 102 allow precise measurements on asphalt binder and bitumen. Features such as Toolmaster™, QuickConnect, a Peltier temperature device for dry sample heating, and step-by-step instructions for measuring procedures according to AASHTO T315, AASHTO T350, AASHTO TP101, ASTM D7175, ASTM D7405, and DIN EN 14770 guarantee the most convenient operation. For measurements according to AASHTO T316, ASTM D4402, and DIN EN 13302 both instruments can be equipped with a Peltier-temperature-controlled measurement chamber for concentric cylinder geometries.

Key Features

Two models to cover the whole spectrum of rheological asphalt and bitumen testing

Two models to cover the whole spectrum of rheological asphalt and bitumen testing

The well-established SmartPave dynamic shear rheometers are able to analyze unmodified as well as modified asphalt binder and bitumen in a wide temperature range, either according to standards or with classic rheological methods. While SmartPave 102 is the instrument which meets the highest measurement demands, SmartPave 92 is designed especially for the demands of quality control and routine measurements in asphalt test labs.

The RheoCompass™ software: new paths for asphalt and bitumen testing

The RheoCompass™ software: new paths for asphalt and bitumen testing

RheoCompass™ is a navigation tool that gives you the complete overview as well as the exact insights you require. It contains numerous templates that are tailored specifically to the needs of the asphalt industry. The predefined test procedures contain step-by-step instructions for all test types as defined by AASHTO, ASTM, DIN EN, and FGSV.

Unique accessories for easy handling

Unique accessories for easy handling

SmartPave 92’s and SmartPave 102’s unique temperature control unit is the first Peltier heating system with heating elements above and below the sample. Furthermore, the instruments feature Toolmaster™ – the only completely contact-free automatic tool recognition and configuration system for rheometers. It recognizes measuring systems and temperature control units as soon as they are connected to the rheometer so you don’t need to enter any data manually.

Fully automatic temperature calibration

Fully automatic temperature calibration

Anton Paar offers fully automatic temperature calibration and verification routines in the RheoCompass™ software. Temperature accuracy and stability are crucial in asphalt testing. The unique automatic temperature calibration routine ensures temperature gradients <0.1 °C.
