Automatic Mechanical Compactor

Supports the following standards :

ASTM D1557, ASTM D1883, ASTM D5102, ASTM D558, ASTM D560, ASTM D698, ASTM 5102, ASTM D559, AASHTO T99, AASHTO T134, AASHTO T135, AASHTO T180

The mechanical compactor automatically compacts and rotates mold after each blow while keeping track of the number of hammer blows and shutting off once a preset number of blows is reached. The start/stop function of the compactor is independent of the counter. The unit can be used to perform standard or modified compaction tests using a 5.5 lb. (2.5kg) hammer with 12" (305mm) height of drop or a 10 lb. (4.5kg) hammer with 18" (457mm) drop. Hammer lift compensates the height of the drop for soil thickness in the mold during compaction. Hammer weight is concentrated at the foot, allowing free fall of the hammer. Hammer changes are made from in front of the compactor, making maintenance/adjustments easier without moving machine away from mounted location.

Included with the compactor are : (1) 5.5 lb (2.5kg) hammer; (1) 10 lb. (4.5kg) pie-shaped hammer; (1) hammer surcharge weight to convert hammers to 10lb (4.5kg); (1) hammer safety device; (1) 4" (102mm) mold, and (1) 6" (152mm) mold. Overall dimensions: 56"H x 16.5"W x 30"D (1422 x 419 x 762mm). Max. height in operation: 66" (1677mm).
