Fly ash and lime are typically mixed with calcium silicate to make construction cement. Depending on their capacity to float in water, they are classified as hydraulic or non-hydraulic.
High-quality Cement is required to create concrete and mortar that adhere to the appropriate building industry standards.
Tube Sampler for packaged Cement
It is a brass tube with a diameter of around 28 mm that is used for sampling cement from bags. Wooden handle and bevel on the sides are present in this equipment. Near the handle, there is an air hole. The sampling tube has a capacity of around 750g of Cement each operation and has a volume of about 300cc.
Bulk Cement Sampler with Slotted Tubes
These samplers are employed to take cement samples from wagons and ship holds. Two telescoping brass tubes with slots running their length make up the sampler. The conical end of the tube makes penetration simple. These samplers can be utilized up to a depth of 2 meters and are 1.5 to 1.8 m long with an approximate 35 mm O.D. for sampling from ship holds.
These are used to cast Cement concrete test specimens so that I.S. 516-compliant compressive strength testing can be done. These molds were created in accordance with I.S. requirements. The interior dimensions are exact to within 0.2 mm, and the faces are flattened to within a tolerance of 0.02 mm. A base plate is included with each mold. The HEICO 70.6 mm and 150 mm cube molds have I.S.I. stamped on them.
Compression Testing Machines
It’s critical to evaluate the cement concrete work’s quality. Testing of the raw material, freshly-poured concrete, and cured concrete are all required components of any concrete quality control program. This helps increase the material’s effectiveness and provides more confidence in the concrete’s performance in strength and durability.
This Cement Testing Equipment is used to mold cylinder-shaped cement concrete samples for compressive strength tests. Cast iron was used to make these molds. They are simple to divide into two pieces. Internal diameter and height are finished to a tolerance of 0.2 and 1 mm, respectively. Equipped with a base plate that has been flattened to a tolerance of 0.02 mm.
The Machine Manufacturer Matters
It costs a lot of money to purchase material testing equipment. Consequently, it’s crucial to buy from recognized cement testing machine manufacturers. When shopping for a machine, check to see if the seller guarantees the following characteristics:
- Repeatable and precise results
To guarantee ongoing and reproducible outcomes over years of operation, the machine’s frame integrity must surpass specifications, and the design and manufacturing of the machine must be of the highest caliber.
- Safety of technicians and machines
The security of service workers and lab technicians is crucial. Regardless of skill level, machines should be built with the operator in mind.
- Ease of use
Even for novice technicians, testing should be simple.
Finding the machine that best suits your requirements can be challenging because there are many testing criteria, materials, specimen geometries, and regulatory regulations to consider.
