The Automatic Marshall Stability Test Machine is used to determine the maximum load and ﬂow values of bituminous mixtures. Capacity is 50 kN. The machine comprises compact two column frame with adjustable upper cross beam.
Platen speed is 50.8 mm/min. For safety, the up and down travel of the lower platen is limited the use of limit switches. Rapid adjustment of the platen is controlled using the up and down buttons on the front panel of the machine.
The measuring system consists of a 50 kN capacity strain gauge load cell ﬁtted to the upper cross beam to read stability values and the 25 x 0.001 mm linear potentiometric displacement transducer ﬁtted to the breaking head.
The machine is supplied complete with marshall breaking head.

NMST-304 LCD Graphic Display Data Acquisition and Control Unit
NMST-304 LCD Graphic Display Data Acquisition and Control Unit is produced to control the machine and processing of data from load-cells, pressure transducers or displacement transducers which are ﬁtted
to the machine.
NMST-304 LCD Graphic Display are controlled from the front panel consisting of a 240x120 pixel LCD display and function keys. One analog channel for load cell and one analog channel for displacement transducer exists.
NMST-304 LCD Graphic Display are controlled with function keys on the front panel. One analog channel for load cell and one analog channel for displacement transducer exists.
NMST-304 has easy to use menu options. It displays all menu option listings simultaneously, allowing the operator to access the required option in a seamless manner to activate the option or enter a numeric value to set the test parameters. The NTKAS-304 digital graphic display is able to draw real-time
"Load vs. Time", "Load vs. Displacement" or "Stress vs. Time" graphics.
NMST-304 can save 256 test results in its internal memory. At the end of the test cycle, the results can be stored in the large memory or downloaded to a PC in NTKAS-304 software format. Dedicated software package is available for further online data processing data base management and certiﬁcate printing.

Data Acquisition & PC Software
Marshall Test Software is developed for both EN 12697-34 and ASTM D5581 Marshall Tests. Marshall Test Software includes control of machine, acquisition of load and displacement data, saving them and reports. The Marshall Test Software accepts specimen diameter and height as an input parameter.
It automatically calculates correction factor coming from the standarts respect to specimen size. The stability value is calculated regarding to this factor. The software continously updates load and displacement until the end of test. When the test is completed, the sharpest slope of the graph is calculated. The point that this line crosses displacement axis is commented as an oﬀset. This oﬀset is subtracted from the displacement value at peak point and called as ﬂow. Graphical outputs and reports can be saved as a MS Excel worksheet.
