Indentation Testing Machine
Meets and exceeds EN12697-20
Temperature controlled water bath
Optional immersion heater and PC data logging software
Digital indicator with digital communications
Determine the depth of indentation
The Indentation Testing Machine CS-IND for determining the resistance to penetration of road and mastic asphalt by loading a cylindrical pin and measuring the indentation in a sample over a given time. The CS-IND comprises of a frame incorporating a stainless steel water bath with drain facility, method of applying the 500N (112lbf) load and means of recording the test results.* Immersion heater is not included but can be offered as additional equipment. The apparatus conforms to the requirements of EN 12697-20.The maximum nominal size of the aggregates should be less or equal to 16 mm (0.6inch).
  • Auto data logging software available which:
    – Reduces operator involvement
    – Eliminates chances of error
    – Generates graphical representation of the test in real time
    – Saves operator data, sample information data, time, and pertinent information relevant to the specific sample on test
    – Reduces test costs significantly
  • Heater element to comply with both temperatures requested by EN standard
  • Stainless steel, temperature controlled water bath with drain facility
  • Digital indicator with digital communications
