AFGB Superpave Gyratory Compactor

The AFGB is a completely self-contained SGC that weighs only 304 pounds. Just roll it into the bed of a pickup or into a minivan and take it anywhere. Ideal for on-site testing and mobile labs, this SGC can handle design and QC/QA work with equal ease.

The AFGB superpave gyratory compactor measures the mold angle during compaction. This angle, along with the consolidation pressure, gyration number, and specimen height is displayed throughout the compaction process. The tubular frame design and patented method of inducing gyratory motion ensures an accurate angle every time.

Designed for ease-of-use the AFGB has an integrated industrial computer control the compaction of the specimen from start to finish. Simply enter the compaction parameters, lower the prepared mold into the compaction chamber, secure the gyratory head, and press Start. The system then applies the consolidation pressure, induces the angle, and gyrates the mold until the specified number of gyrations or specified height is reached. Extrude the specimen after compaction with the same hydraulic ram used to compact the specimen.

The 215mm of internal height available in the AFGB molds is enough for most performance testing specimens. During compaction, the specimen height is sent (once per gyration) to a printer or directly to a computer through the serial port. In addition, the compactor stores the data from last 10 tests, marking each with the date and time. These saved results can be sent to a printer or transferred to a computer as needed.
