Accelerated polishing machine(PSV)

Acceleration polishing machine

Model: APM-3


The accelerated polishing machine(PSV) is used to simulate the car wheel abrasion to the pavement surface, by accelerated grinding on the aggregate thus to get the aggregate polishing value, and estimate the aggregate abrasion resistance, thus to select suitable aggregate for different road construction requirements, it’s designed and made by complies to the JTG E42-2005 standard, and also absorb the foreign made advantages. It features compact structure, intelligent control. 

The accelerated polishing machine (PSV)polishes the coarse aggregates then use pendulum skid resistance tester to test the friction coefficient, that’s called as the PSV. The machine comprised of transmission mechanism, road wheel, rubber wheel, abrasion material feeding system, water supply system, weights, molds, loading adjusting device, control panel. The road wheel is used to install 14pcs specimen,
