PaveScan MDM (Mix Design Module): Essential for Asphalt Density Quality Control

The PaveScan Mix Design Module (MDM) immediately alerts paving contractors when there is a change in the mix. Since PaveScan MDM detects even minute changes in aggregate, mix and moisture, comparing daily samples against authorized mix designs makes any potential deviations apparent and allows any issues to be addressed before the mix is put in the field.

Users can properly expose faults with a five-minute lab test, eliminating necessity silo dumps or other costly remediation.

The PaveScan RDM system becomes a strong new Quality Control (QC) tool for asphalt density evaluation with PaveScan MDM. PaveScan MDM establishes a relationship between the mix’s dielectric properties at various percent voids.

PaveScan RDM uses this correlation to reveal precise density fluctuation inside the asphalt mat. Bridge decking and longitudinal joints may now be rolled to specification in real-time, thanks to this level of process control.

Powerful New QC Tool for the Lab and the Paving Site

PaveScan technologies used together can help prevent premature road failures such as raveling, cracking and degradation along weakly compacted joints.

Improve Quality — Save Time and Money

Reducing maintenance expenses and repaving cycles can be achieved by improving the durability and lifetime of roadways. If delays or paving train stops cause compaction issues, quality control managers can now address pavement deficiencies before it is too late, resulting in cost savings in the field. PaveScan technology helps the users to avoid costly penalties, rip-ups and repaving.

Improve Safety

PaveScan MDM and RDM provide paving contractors with an efficient and complete view of pavement quality without the cost, risk or inaccuracies associated with spot coring. More significantly, by eliminating the need to core, fewer workers are exposed to the hazards of work zones.

Towards Coreless Compaction

Coring is a damaging process that destroys the road surface’s integrity. Reduced or completely eliminated core requirements result in lower costs, improved safety and reduced potholes per mile.
