The InstroTek, Inc. M.i.S.T. ™ is a cyclic conditioning system
that is designed to simulate the stripping mechanisms that occur in
H.M.A pavement layers. The M.i.S.T ™is a stand alone unit that consists
of a pressurized chamber that pushes and pulls water through a compacted
asphalt sample, simulating the action of an automobile tire on the
road. The tests can be performed at different pressures and temperatures
to replicate different traffic and environmental conditions. The unit
is completely automatic and results are ready in as little as four
hours. Simply place your asphalt core sample in the M.i.S.T ™ testing
chamber, select your test parameters, press start and the unit does the
Designed to simulate H.M.A pavement stripping mechanisms.Shorter test times than current moisture sensitivity tests. Results in less than one day.Tests can be performed at realistic pressures similar to pressures produced by vehicle tires.Testing is automatic and monitored by sensors.Data can be stored and transferred to a PC for evaluation and archiving.Weight: 159kg / 350lbs – Height: 1.35m / 53″ – Foot Print: 0.53 x 0.53m / 21 x 21″
