Asphalt Moisture Measurement

Moisture measurement is critical for asphalt manufacturers as they need to control material dosing to get the correct mix of materials and optimise surfactant additions when using Recycled Asphalt Pavement (RAP).

With increasing costs in energy, it is also essential to measure moisture before drying processes. Online moisture measurement in asphalt production is a cost-effective method of reducing costs without affecting quality.

Typical Materials

  • Recycled asphalt pavement (RAP)
  • Aggregates
  • Sand
  • Stones
