GSSI highlights PaveScan RDM Asphalt Density Assessment Tool at World of Asphalt 2019
GSSI, the world’s leading manufacturer of ground penetrating radar (GPR) equipment, announces that it will feature its industry-leading PaveScan® RDM asphalt density assessment tool at the World of Asphalt 2019 Show and Conference, to be held Feb 12-14, 2019 at the Indiana Convention Center, in Indianapolis, IN. Drop by Booth #19143 to see a demonstration of PaveScan RDM, which provides accurate real-time measurements to ensure pavement life and quality.
Since its introduction in 2016, GSSI’s PaveScan RDM system has been a valued addition to the toolbox of solutions for uncovering problems that occur during the paving process, including poor uniformity and significant variations in density. By avoiding these problems, PaveScan RDM helps avoid such premature failures as road ravelling, cracking, and deterioration along joints.
PaveScan RDM automatically measures the dielectric value to identify anomalies in real-time. In addition, the dielectric values can be used to correlate percent voids and density in new pavement. The innovative technology enables users to obtain critical density data for quality assurance/quality control of new pavements. Unlike other options, like nuclear density gauges or radioactive alternatives, PaveScan RDM does not result in any site hazards or require closing off work areas.
Seamlessly integrating with GPS systems, PaveScan RDM features a flexible, modular design that facilitates easy and efficient operation and data collection. It is available as a small, portable single sensor cart-based system or a three-sensor configuration using an extended cart. The entire system is composed of a cart, one to three sensors, a customized Panasonic G1 ToughBook, a concentrator box and a variety of system accessories.
Geophysical Survey Systems, Inc., is a world leader in the development, manufacture, and sale of ground penetrating radar (GPR) equipment, primarily for the concrete inspection, utility mapping and locating, road and bridge deck evaluation, geophysics, and archaeology markets.
Their equipment is used all over the world to explore the subsurface of the earth and to inspect infrastructure systems non-destructively. GSSI created the first commercial GPR system nearly 50 years ago and continues to provide the widest range and highest quality GPR equipment available today.
