A speciality asphalt manufacturer in California has purchased three high-temperature viscometers from Cambridge Viscosity to monitor and control asphalt viscosity in real time.

The company chose the high-temperature viscometers because of their ability to measure asphalt at process temperatures between 400F and 500F.

Technically advanced high-temperature inline viscometers were installed in a bypass line directly off the main asphalt processing line.

The impact of real-time viscosity control was immediate, resulting in savings in material, processing time and labour.

Robert Kasameyer, chief executive officer of Cambridge Viscosity, said: ‘Accurate, real-time viscosity measurement and control is enabling this refiner to minimise its additive requirements to meet customer specifications, while speeding throughput by hitting customer requirements the first time.

‘In addition to meeting the customer’s need for high-temperature viscosity measurement and real-time data collection, the viscometer system’s self-cleaning design enables the asphalt manufacturer to maintain the systems more efficiently, without constant maintenance and re-calibration,’ he added.

Patented oscillating piston technology from Cambridge Viscosity ensures accurate results across a range of laboratory and inline applications, including oil and gas, petroleum and bio-fuels, coatings, paints and inks, pharmaceuticals and other substances.

The company’s sensors and viscometer systems conform to ASTM, DIN, JIS and ISO standards, with a range of models designed to meet specific industry and application needs.

Certifications include Atex, CE and FM.
