Vacuum Pycnometer Set

4.34L for Rice Test

ASTM D2041, AASHTO T209, AASHTO T283


Used in rice testing to determine the maximum specific gravity of bituminous paving mixtures with maximum aggregate size up to 19.1mm (.75").

The H-1750 provides a 4.34L volume with a 2.9L max. sample volume and typically a 2500g required sample size and a 7.5" ID x 6" depth. Set includes aluminum volumetric canister; volumetric lid; flat, vinyl vacuum lid with O-ring and a metal water vacuum aspirator with 3/8" IPT and 6' hose with release valve and fittings. Unit achieves vacuum using an aspirator or optional vacuum pump.

This set is also available in stainless steel, order H-1750SS. For those who want to use smaller test samples, the H-1751 is available. The H-1751 provides a 2.9L volume with a 1.9L maximum sample volume for a typical sample size of 1500g. It measures 7.5" ID x 4" depth, but the H-1751 does not comply with ASTM specs.

A larger volume model pycnometer is also available. It provides a 5.8L volume with a 3.9L maximum sample volume and a 4000g typical sample size. It measures 7.5" ID x 8" depth.

All models can be used with H-1756A vibrating apparatus or H-1782 de-airing device, and H-1754D manometer, sold separately. See page 165 for vacuum pumps. Replacement parts are available, please inquire.
