Paver Mounted Thermal Profiling (PMTP) is sensor technology mounted on top of a paver that measures and documents the asphalt surface temperature profiles at every longitudinal foot behind a paver to the full paving width. PMTP indicates temperature variation caused by poor mix quality (temperature variations during mixing or aggregate segregation) and/or poor construction practices (segregation during loading/material transfer and paver stops). PMTP is often used in combination with Intelligent Compaction to improve asphalt paving quality thus leading to longer lasting roads with fewer isolated failures from segregation (mix or thermal).
