Rolling Thin Film Oven Test

Petrolytical RTFOT

The test is used to determine the effect of heat and air on a moving film of semi-solid asphaltic material. The effects of this treatment are determined by measurement of the properties of the asphalt before and after heating in a oven for 75 minutes at 163°C.


The apparatus consists of a forced air circulation oven suitable for temperatures up to 180°C and is equipped with a rotating shelf inside along a coil that preheats the air directed into the sample container.
