Pave IR

Pave IR

The PAVE IR Scan quality control system offers the possibility for recording the asphalt temperature during paving. It depicts a temperature profile for the entire project. Temperature differences that lead to thermal segregation of the material and, thus, to premature wear and tear of the road can therefore be determined during the job, resulting in countermeasures to be taken. This quality control system records the temperature data, including GNSS position and weather data. The data can then be evaluated with the Pave Project Manager software. Areas with thermal segregation are detected and further analyzed. Using this data, the system allows conclusions to be drawn about the quality of the asphalt, making possible improvements to the process, and the road quality. Contractors can use this data as evidence of a precision job. They can even get bonus payments based on quality, in the United States and Sweden.

“Tools such as the PAVE-IR Scan help achieve better quality of construction, longer lasting pavements, benefiting the traveling public, of which we are all members.” [Stephen Sebesta, Texas Transportation Institute]
