PaveScan RDM 2.0

PaveScan RDM 2.0

Non-destructive Asphalt Density Testing Equipment

The PaveScan RDM 2.0 is our second-generation asphalt density assessment tool that is ideal for uncovering inconsistencies that occur during the paving process, including poor uniformity and significant variations in density. By detecting these problems, PaveScan RDM 2.0 helps to avoid premature failures such as road raveling, cracking and deterioration along joints.

04/24/2019: This pavement density measurement technology is now an accepted AASHTO spec, #PP 98-19.

Modern technology to determine new pavement quality
The PaveScan RDM 2.0 uses the dielectric measurements of new pavement to determine pavement quality and uniformity, a world’s first.
  • Innovative Technology

    PaveScan RDM 2.0 offers an easy and affordable assessment tool to non-destructively determine asphalt dielectric during application. This system is ideal for uncovering inconsistencies that occur during the paving process, including poor uniformity and significant variations in density.

  • Groundbreaking Solutions

    PaveScan RDM 2.0 is the premier asphalt test method to identify areas of non-conformity in new pavement. It can be deployed with two different survey methods; utilizing the dielectric values or percent voids. There are no site hazards or need to close off work areas as is the case with nuclear gauges/radioactive alternatives.

  • Data Visualization

    From technician to engineer, the PaveScan RDM 2.0 is easy to operate. With seamless GPS integration, real-time onscreen data output, and export options, this system is ideal for government transportation agencies and paving contractors alike.
