New Nuclear Gauge is Ideal for Road Construction Industry
Summary of the press release:
- Designed to read accurately both asphalt and soil
- Provides backscatter measurements on asphalt and direct transmission measurements on floors
- Meets standards for density testing such as ASTM D2950 for asphalt and ASTM D8167 for floors

Troxler Electronics is rewriting the rules for core density meters
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC, March 4, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Troxler Electronic Labs, Inc., the original maker and global leader in nuclear density meters, today announced that it has launched its newest nuclear meter, called the EGauge Combo Model 4540 brought. This transform meter is the first nuclear exempt meter that can accurately read both asphalt and soil while freeing it from the additional costs, hassles, and cumbersome procedures required with radioactive materials licenses.
Core densitometers play an important role in the road construction industry, enabling smoother and longer lasting roads. Troxler has been a leader since 1962 and its Model 3440 density meter is the industry standard for approved nuclear meters and the most widely used nuclear meter in the world. “The readings from the EGauge Combo are very similar to our nuclear gauges,” said Lance Johnson, quality assurance manager at Superior Paving in Virginia. “It’s nice not having to use standard blocks, and the best part is that we can own them without a license, radiation badge, or certification.”
The EGauge Combo can do everything a Troxler 3440 can, such as backscatter measurements on asphalt and direct transmission measurements on floors. The low-radiation design is so small and secure that the NRC has granted exemption from traditional nuclear licenses. This means that anyone can own the EGauge Combo to run density tests!
Billy Troxler, President and CEO of Troxler Electronic Laboratories, stated, “My father founded this company 63 years ago based on the input of thought leaders in the industry to meet an urgent need. We pride ourselves on continuously innovating, to meet and exceed the requirements of. ” the developing industry. “Troxler continues:” By working closely with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), standards organizations such as ASTM and AASHTO and many customers, we have been able to create another unique and effective product. “
The EGauge follows the current standards for density tests such as ASTM D2950 for asphalt and ASTM D8167 for floors. All states accept the use of this gauge as well as current nuclear gauges that meet these standards.
“This measuring device will be cross-generational. In 20 years, most construction companies will no longer remember the days when RSOs (radiation protection officers) had to keep inspection books and every operator had to wear TLD badges,” explained Finch Troxler. “I am delighted to be able to offer a product like the EGauge Combo and to maintain the tradition of innovation over generations.”
Troxler Electronic Laboratories offers a range of laboratory and field products for road construction, from centrifugal compressors and igniters to gauges and traditional nuclear weapons. All of the company’s products are designed and manufactured at Troxler’s headquarters in RTP, NC, USA. This vertical integration gives Troxler an edge over its competitors by controlling the manufacturing process, resulting in on-time delivery of the highest quality equipment.
