A Highly Advanced Non-Nuclear Asphalt Density Gauge
AASHTO T343 and ASTM D7113
The InstroTek NoNuke is a highly advanced dielectric asphalt density gauge specifically designed to increase accuracy and dependability. The NoNuke’s unique algorithm automatically corrects and alerts the operator of issues like surface-roughness, temperature, and presence of moisture that can negatively affect the accuracy and repeatability of test results.
The NoNuke’s multiple innovative sensors can automatically correct for surface-roughness by varying signal depth along the asphalt layer. Unique placed internal and external temperature sensors measure gauge and pavement temperatures to ensure the gauge is within the operating temperature and advanced temperature corrections are applied to density measurements. Moisture presence warning also will alert the operator of high moisture content in the asphalt pavement while the non-contact warning assures the gauge is positioned correctly and making proper contact with the asphalt pavement. These unique and innovative system checks are built into the NoNuke to continually monitor its environment and produce the best and most accurate test results.
The NoNuke requires NO license, special transportation requirements or radioactive certifications.

PaveScan Mix Design Module (MDM), is an innovative system used to create a correlation between the dielectric value of the mix and the asphalt density at different percent air voids. This correlation can then be entered into the PaveScan, Non-nuclear Rolling Density Measurement System (RDM), and used as a powerful QC/QA tool for accurate density measurements of the entire asphalt pavement. Quality process control using PaveScan MDM and RDM means all pavements and longitudinal joints can be compacted to specification in real-time.
The InstroTek PaveScan Powered by GSSI Technology is the first non-nuclear rolling density system that provides real-time compaction and density data for the entire paving project. Proper compaction is the most important factor in producing long-lasting pavements. The PaveScan uses multiple sensors to continuously scan the entire pavement and provide a density profile of the entire paving project. The operator pushes the cart along the lane and gathers density data behind the asphalt rollers. The onboard computer displays density, compaction, a line graph, and a contour map of the measurements. This information is used by contractors and pavement engineers to assess the quality of the pavement.
The Smart-Jig is a completely independent testing jig with the first integrated load cell, electronics, and Bluetooth connectivity that makes capturing, reporting, and sharing data seamlessly.
InstroTek’s SmartLoader is a variable speed universal load frame that can perform a multitude of monotonic loading tests. The SmartLoader is perfect for Balanced Mix Design (BMD) testing and comes preprogrammed with a number of BMD tests, including IDEAL-CT (Cracking Test), IDEAL-RT (Rutting Test), IFIT, and LSU SCB test.
The Ignition Panel™ is a front panel upgrade for the NCAT Asphalt Content furnace. The NCAT Furnace is widely used in the asphalt industry for accurate determination of asphalt content and quality control of pavements. The Ignition Panel upgrades the current units with advanced electronic components and improves the functionality and efficiency of the furnace while preserving its accuracy, reliability, and user experience.
The InstroTek HWT-Pro is a comprehensive verification and diagnostic device for the Hamburg Wheel Tracker. The HWT-Pro can measure and report your machine's deviation from AASHTO T-324 calibration requirements. The HWT-Pro also follows the recommendations of NCHRP Project 20-07 Task 361 conducted at Louisiana State University.
The NEW eDry Upgrade Kit for the InstroTek CoreDry™ is the quickest and most effective method for drying asphalt emulsions. In less than 30 minutes, the CoreDry eDry Emulsion Kit can be used to dry up to 5 grams of asphalt emulsions. CoreDry’s patented vacuum technology allows pavement engineers to quickly determine the appropriate binder content and application rates while retaining the rheological properties of the binder.
The Asphalt Roller Compactor (ARC), now available through InstroTek, Inc., is the first unit developed based entirely on an electro-mechanical system. The compactor does not require hydraulic fluids or air pressure, which allows the users to produce repeatable and consistent samples. The asphalt slab produced with this compactor is much more representative; with aggregate orientation similar to samples compacted in the field.
The Asphalt Compatibility Tester (ACT) is a fast, straightforward method to evaluate the adhesion properties of asphalt binder and aggregates in the mixture. This test uses LED light and detection system to measure the color change that may occur as a result of ASTM D 3625 (Boil Test Method).
