Solvent Extraction of Asphalt. This is a less efficient method of determining oil content in asphalt than burning it, but it is more accurate. Solvent is placed inside this glass cylinder over a hot plate. A condensation plate is placed at the top with cold water running through it.
Vacuum Extractors use suction to pull the asphalt solvent/slurry through a filtration bed to make the separation. Reflux Extractors heat the solvent to a vapor, which rises to condense on a cooling coil then drips down on the HMA sample. The solvent percolates through the sample and drips to the bottom of the chamber to be reheated again.

As the oil extractor has strong heating capacity, the asphalt therein can reach the oil-extracting temperature in a short time, and at the same time, the asphalt in the preheating zone reach es into flow state, so as to replenish the fast oil extractor with asphalt and achieve fast and continuous extraction and dispensing of oil. 4.
The present invention is a separation method and system in which granulation of coupled post-extraction asphalt residue is used to achieve deep separation of heavy oil. A dispersion solvent is introduced into the asphalt phase after separation by solvent extraction and the asphalt phase undergoes rapid phase change in a gas-solid separator and is dispersed into solid particles while the ...
The asphalt content and gradation test can be used for HMA quality control, acceptance testing or forensic analysis. The three major test methods, solvent extraction, nuclear asphalt content gauge and ignition furnace are discussed here. Each method offers a way to determine asphalt content and aggregate gradation from an HMA sample.. Solvent Extraction
Centrifuge Extractor, Filterless. The continuous-flow filterless centrifuge extractor is ideally suited for use in the extraction of mineral fines from bitumen-laden solvents obtained from standard asphalt extraction tests. In operation, the solvent suspension is fed through the top funnel into a special aluminum beaker, (2) H-1857.5 supplied).
The system is equipped with a contactless sensor, the easyTEMP, that controls the temperature inside all vessels across the entire extraction process, providing higher safety and reproducibility. The use of a noninvasive sensor, in combination with the vessels design, simplify the user's operation while delivering accurate temperature control.
In order to avoid exposure to Trichloroethylene, mineral substances extracted in the asphalt analyzer must remain within the fume cabinet until they are cooled. Additional drying can also be undertaken in a heated dry box, which must be operated in the same fume cabinet as the extraction system.
