Asphalt - bitumen - rheology - shear rate - dynamic shear rate




The Kinexus DSR-III is a dynamic shear rheometer that meets the demanding needs of research, product development, comparative benchmarking, quality control and assurance required by the global Asphalt / Bitumen Industry with true "plug and play" functionality for all measuring systems and environmental control units.

The Kinexus DSR-III performs all tests based on Standard Operating Procedure AASHTO, EN, ASTM while offering access to a full range of rheological tests with complete flexibility of design and configuration of tests and protocols and for generation of master curves.

- Grade testing to industry standards such as ASTM, AASHTO and EN specifications with Time-Temperature Superposition for master curve generation.
- Wide variety of measurement geometries optimized for rheological characterization of liquid binders through to solid asphalt cores.
- All modes of rheological operation stress control, shear rate control and direct strain controlled oscillation at demand strain amplitude for accurate control of sample strain history.
- Unique rSpace software interface that offers total flexibility of test set-up - from sequence-driven Standard Operating Procedure (SOP)-type functionality to fully customizable test design.
- Intelligent geometry recognition with full auto-configuration and user feedback on system status to guarantee robust data for all measurements.
- Complete sample history from the point of loading onto the rheometer available in data file as standard because ensuring reliable rheology data for complex materials like asphalt actually starts before a measurement takes place.
