The GCTS Direct Shear Testing Systems can perform both constant normal stress and constant normal stiffness direct shear tests on either asphalt or soil specimens.
The GCTS Gyratory Compactor offers a high level of accuracy while maintaining ease of use. The GRC-20 is a fully automated servo-controlled compactor that provides a high productivity rate.
The Pressure Aging Vessel (PAV) is used to simulate in service oxidative aging of asphalt binder according to procedures developed by the Strategic Highway Research Program (SHRP).
The Rolling Thin Film Oven is used to measure the effect of heat and air on a moving film of semi-solid asphaltic material. The results of this treatment are determined from measurements of the asphalt properties before and after the test.
Resilient Modulus Testing System features a modular design that allows for various tests to be performed using a single machine.
The GCTS Asphalt Mixture Performance Tester (AMPT-15) was designed to easily and efficiently perform a large range of asphalt performance tests. This self-contained system is capable of performing dynamic modulus, flow time, and flow number tests as well as other tests using optional fixtures.
The static cone penetrometers can be used to evaluate soil consistency by determining the soil’s level of compaction and/ or the bearing capacity.
Measures the shear strength of soil with a CBR
Direct-reading instrument for precision penetration measurements of bituminous materials, cement, petroleum and waxes, as well as food, cosmetics and pharmaceutical products.
Asphalt pavement density tester (Non Nuclear)For quick non-destructive testing of density, assessment of uniformity and degree of compaction.
Combines the universal penetrometer and a grease cone, which has a hardened steel tip with a special plunger.
The Automatic Asphalt Content tester uses the ignition method to provide highly accurate measurements of bitumen content in asphalt mix using Ignition method. Complies with all standards : ASTM D 6307 & AASHTO T 308. Now also accredited by Indian Road Congress.
