Bitumen Content Furnace by Ignition Method



EN 12697-39 | ASTM D6307 | AASHTO TP53 | AASHTO T308 | NCAT (National Centre for Asphalt Technology) | BS (DD)



  • Ignition method reduces testing time and costs.
  • Samples up to 5000 g.
  • No exposure to harmful solvents.
  • Patented ceramic filter reducing emissions by 95%.
  • Automatic and manual mode.
  • Automatic weight compensation for each sample
  • Load tested.


This unique furnace automatically detects endpoint within .01% of the sample weight. In the automatic mode, the endpoint automatically is detected; the software ends the test, prints out the results and beeps. In the manual mode, the unit begins to beep but will continue to test until the user presses “stop” to end it. Once the “stop” button has been pressed, the door will unlock, and the results will be printed.


Supplied complete with 4 baskets, 2 trays, 2 covers, handle, cooling cage, insulated plate, gloves, face shield, 4 rolls of printer tape.

The unit provides asphalt content of bituminous paving mixtures accurate to 0.11%, with a fast, environmentally friendly, and cost-effective method of determining asphalt content. A 1200-1800 g sample of asphalt can be tested in 30-45 minutes using this Content Furnace.


The Furnace has an internal scale, which automatically monitors the sample weight throughout the ignition process, saving valuable technician time and increasing productivity in the lab. The ignition method replaces the costly and time-consuming solvent extraction method. The automatic door-lock feature prevents opening the chamber door during the critical test time for operator safety and testing integrity.


The system has the capability to accept positive or negative correction factors for use with mixes containing hydrated lime.
