Pressure Aging Vessel (Prentex)
Model   BTAG-2
Price   $18,549.00
Condition   New
Warranty   Yes
Availability   Inquire

The Superpave Pressure Aging Vessel (PAV) uses pressurized heated air to simulate long-term oxidative aging of asphalt binders. The complete and fully integrated device meets ASME pressure vessel code.

System Controller provides automatic timing of the aging run and end-of-test shutdown. Displays critical data, and provides for faster stabilization of temperature after pressurization. Stores temperature and pressure data for later downloading to a Windows equipped PC computer; can share computer with other laboratory equipment. Year 2000 compliant, the controller is available separately to upgrade older PAV Systems.

PAV temperature is maintained +/- 0.3 C; pressure is maintained +/- 0.03 MPa during the aging period following stabilization within the allowable time following pressurization

Hinged, bolted PAV cover and compact stainless steel cabinet --easy to maintain, fits against the wall or in a corner on your laboratory table -- even fits under overhead shelves.

The Model 9300 PAV System is sold complete and ready-to-use with one exception -- due to the varying international safety requirements for this item, the required pressure regulator for the air supply system is not provided.

NOTE: The PAV System requires clean, dry compressed air supplied at 2.2 to 2.4 MPa [21-24 bar], higher pressure than any laboratory compressor system I have known of or can supply. It is customary to use commercially supplied compressed industrial or breathing grade air [breathable grade is sometime preferred due to its guaranteed low humidity], usually supplied in portable cylinders about 1.5 m high X 0.25 to 0.33 m in diameter and with the air compressed to approximately 13-18 MPa [ 130-180 bar], requiring a pressure regulator to reduce the delivery pressure to the required 2.2-2.4 MPa.
