Coppers unbalance testing and stand alone 4 point binding system

Manufacturer: COOPER RESEARCH TECHNOLOGY LTD
Model: Crt-Rc-H2 Hydraulic Steel Roll

Hydraulic Standard Roller Compactor-Dual size:The Roller Compactor is considered to be the method of laboratory specimen compaction that results in slabs of asphaltic paving materials with properties that most closely simulate those of materials in the highway. Slabs can be compacted to target mixture densities using loads that are equivalent to those of full-scale compaction equipment.

Key Uses
