아스팔트 온도계 - RT8A
Roadstone Thermometer - RT8A  
Today's roadstone plants are facing ever increasing demands for tighter quality control and many have now introduced quality assurance schemes to ensure that material leaving the site is within specification.

The temperature of the material, both during production and prior to leaving the site is measured as part of this quality requirement.

Roadstone Plant   Temperature measurement of the material during production can improve the control of the process and give significant savings in energy costs.

Temperature measurement using thermocouples are not recommended because the slow response time introduces lags in the system, which ultimately results in poor control. Damage and wear caused by being in contact with the product means that thermocouples are unreliable and have constantly to be replaced.

Land developed non contact infrared thermometers for this application and have over 30 years experience in the roadstone industry. The RT8A with its linear, industry standard 4 to 20mA output signal, interfaces with all types of low cost indicators, controllers and recorders.

RT8A thermometer features and benefits:
Faster response.
No interference with the material or process, or damage to the measuring system.
Accurate, reliable and stable temperature measurement to aid product quality control.
Saves energy and heating costs.
Maximizes production rates.

The Roadstone Thermometer can be used on all roadstone applications:
Drier exit chute for measurement and control of aggregate temperature.
Mixed material temperature in the mixer.
Coated roadstone mixer/storage bin exit.
Drum mix plant, coated material temperature at the collector box (drum exit).
