Automatic Soil Compactor
ASTM D558, D559, D560, D698, D1883
The Automatic Mechanical Compactor is designed to perform fast and accurate compaction of soil samples automatically.
For standard or modified compaction tests with 5.5 lb. hammer with 12” (305 mm) height of drop or 10 lb. hammer with 18” (457 mm) drop. Compactor accommodates 4” (102 mm) or 6” (152 mm) I.D. moulds, 4” (102 mm) round hammer or 6” (152 mm) pie-shaped hammer compensate for sample drop during compaction. The total weight of the hammer is concentrated at the foot in order to provide a free-fall action. Hammers can easily be replaced from the front side of the compactor.
Machine stops automatically after preset number of blows per compaction is completed. Compaction mould is mounted on the round base; the circular base indexes automatically with each blow to ensure uniform sample compaction. A pie-shaped compactor foot is used with 6” (152 mm) dia. moulds to completely cover the surface of the sample.
Supplied complete with 5.5 lb (2.5 kg),10 lb. (4.5 kg) circular-faced and pie-shaped hammers and 4” (102 mm) and 6” (152 mm) moulds. only ASTM, 110 V 60 Hz
