Thermal Mapping for Caterpillar Asphalt Pavers By: Caterpillar – Cat

Thermal Mapping monitors the surface temperatures of the asphalt using an infrared camera and a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) enabled by RTK accuracy, which helps asphalt companies achieve higher quality results and achieve more incentives by exceeding quality targets.

  • By viewing real-time temperatures, contractors can identify anomalies and take action to manage the plant’s delivery process for the paver and optimize paving practices for more uniform placement temperatures
  • Manage the plant’s mixing process to minimize thermal fluctuations for up to 15% better consistency
  • The system consists of no moving parts as the thermal imaging camera is mounted on a mast with a fixed position
