Asphalt Laying Machine and Thermal Imaging is a method of using infrared radiation to gather information about objects to create thermal images of them, even in low visibility environments. An IR camera measures thousands of temperature points and provides a temperature profile over a large scene. This allows the operators to locate any extremely low or high temperature areas which can cause future asphalt problems such as cracking surfaces and delamination.
The high precision infrared camera, Model PSC-X400LT, is the key component as it scans the asphalt pavement behind the screed,viewing the entire area. An outdoor enclosure for the infrared camera can also accommodate a customer supplied, high precision GPS receiver. It then can record the exact position of the temperature data. In addition to the position, the external influencing parameters are also documented. A pyrometer mounted in front of the under-carriage measures the base temperature before paving.
