Pine Instrument’s Aggregate Imaging System and Superpave AFG2 Gyratory Compactor
February 5, 2009

Pine Instrument Company offers laboratory material testing products: the Aggregate Imaging System and the Superpave AFG2 Gyratory Compactor. Pine’s new Aggregate Imaging System is an automated aggregate analysis system that offers three tests in one: Image-based particle characterization that provides a unified way to measure angularity, shape and surface texture. The system’s light table accommodates up to 50 coarse aggregate particles or literally hundreds of fine aggregate particles at once. Automatic camera movement scans the entire surface, individually characterizing each aggregate particle.  Pine’s new AFG2 is its third generation gyratory compactor which incorporates the newest technology that laboratory technicians need in a gyratory compactor. With built-in angle measurement capabilities, it can operate using either an internal or external mold angle. Throughout the entire compaction process, the angle is displayed on the screen along with the consolidation pressure, gyration number and specimen height.
