Boston, MA-A specialty asphalt manufacturer based in California has purchased three high temperature viscometers from Cambridge Viscosity to monitor and control asphalt viscosity in real-time to more accurately and efficiently meet customer specifications.
The company chose Cambridge Viscosity's high temperature viscometer because of the sensor's ability to measure asphalt at process temperature between 400 and 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Technically advanced high temperature in-line 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 significant savings in material, processing time and labor.
"Accurate, real time viscosity measurement and control is enabling this refiner to minimize their additive requirements to meet customer specifications, while speeding throughput by hitting customer requirements the first time. In addition, they have saved labor costs and lab time," says Cambridge Viscosity CEO Robert Kasameyer. "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."
