Material Testing Equipment
The concrete slump test is an empirical test that measures the workability of fresh concrete. More specifically, it measures the consistency of the concrete in that specific batch. This test is performed to check the consistency of freshly made concrete. Consistency is a term very closely related to workability.
Cube moulds are used in the preparation of concrete cube specimens of high strength materials for compression testing. These concrete moulds are employed to examine the strength of the Concrete, cement and some classes of lime. Cube mould are made in cast iron. Machined surface finished by flat grinding machine.
Sieve analysis is generally used for monitoring and analysing the grain-size distribution of a prepared sample. The particle size distribution is critical to the way a material performs in use. Sieve analysis can be carried out on all types of organic and non-organic granular materials such as sands, clays, coals, crushed rock, granite, soil, as well as many different manufactured powders, seeds and grain.
Cylinder moulds are used in making concrete testing specimen. They are constructed of Glavanized steel or cast iron are dimensionally stable under severe use. Moulds are split along one side with 2 quick-acting clamps welded the mould. When open, mould springs apart slightly to allow specimen removal. It includes a detachable base plate.
