Schematic view of gyratory compaction

Main Features

  • Ideal for mix design of the various types of No-Slump Concrete mixtures requested for production of: paving blocks, concrete paving slabs, rolled compaction concrete, masonry blocks, curbstones, roofing tiles, sewage pipes, hollow core slabs, structural members, extruded fresh concrete elements, concrete road construction with slip form paving finishers, in general directly stripped products.
  • Conform to Scandinavian standard NT BUILD 427 - Concrete, fresh: Compactability with IC-tester (intensive compaction tester).
  • Load cell fitted directly on the vertical actuator for accurate load measurement and feedback control
  • User defined axial stress and speed of rotation
    Easy control using the integrated 7" colour touch-screen control panel or connected PC.
  • Real-time direct shear and torque resistance measurement.  Automatic calculation of the compaction energy, an important parameter for Research (optional).
  • Automatic weight acquisition and density calculation with the integrated balance (optional).
  • tecnical specifications
    • Scroll the table
