The original ATS Pressure Aging Vessel (PAV) was designed to simulate in-service oxidative aging of asphalt binder by exposure to elevated temperatures in a pressurized environment. The improved PAV removes the complications from running and documenting asphalt binder aging operations.We are thrilled to introduce the NEXT generation of our Pressure Aging Vessel, the PAV3.

We’ve kept the same great features this PAV had previously and incorporated some new ones to enable the user even more freedom. Designed to meet AASHTO R28, ASTM D6521, and EN 14769 test standards.
