Universal specimen extruder is used to remove 4” (101.6 mm), 6” (152.4 mm), 100 mm, 150 mm diameter specimens from Proctor, CBR and Marshall moulds.
16-T0080: Universal specimen extruder 50 kN cap.
Maximum ram stroke: 197 mm (ram) + 68 mm (screw)
Steel structure with adapters that can be easily fit conforming to the mould diameter.
This hand operated hydraulic soil extruder can accommodate standard U4 tubes and a range of adaptors to extrude soil samples 35, 38, 101.6, 106 and 152.4mm dia.
It can also be used to remove Marshall, Proctor and CBR specimens.
16-T0082/A: Soil extruder, hand operated, 60 kN cap.
Ram travel: 480 mm
Appropriate accessories and adaptors are available and have to be ordered separately.
16-T0082/1: Adaptor for extruding soil samples 35, 38, 101.6, 106 and 152.4 mm dia. Total length 280 mm approx.
16-T0082/3: Adaptor for extruding 38 mm dia. sample only.
16-T0082/4: Frame and adaptor for extruding three 38 mm dia. tubes from a U4 tube.
16-T0082/5: Adaptor for extruding 106 mm dia. sample from U4 tube.
16-T0082/A16: Extension for extruding up to 450 mm long samples
Motor operated soil extruder features one of the largest capacities available on the market (ram stroke 900 mm), and due to the large number of standard adaptors, is considered the most versatile extruder.
16-T0083/A: Motorised hydraulic soil extruder. 230 V, 50 Hz, 1 ph
The machine exerts a max. thrust of 60 kN and is very simple to operate: a lever controls the extruding speed and the hydraulic valve for the extrusion or return movement.
It can also be stopped at any point in its travel to enable extrusion into small smaller sample tubes or to take smaller size specimens.
Sampling tubes are held in place by an adjustable “V” shape bearing which can extrude either in the vertical or horizontal position.
Both the hydraulic cylinder assembly and the receiving table can easily be lowered alongside the machine to save space when not in use.
The machine is supplied without tube adaptors which have to be ordered separately.
16-T0083/A4: Adaptor for extruding 101.6 mm OD Shelby tube
16-T0083/A5: Adaptor for extruding 100 mm OD Shelby tube
16-T0083/A6: Adaptor for extruding 88.9 mm OD Shelby tube
16-T0083/A7: Adaptor for extruding 83 mm OD Shelby tube
Soil lathe, trimmer, extruder apparatus is used to prepare any size of cylindrical soil sample:
- Specimen lathe function: from dia. 35x70 mm to dia. 110x220 mm
- Specimen trimming and extruding function: from dia. 35x70 mm to dia. 50x100 mm
16-T0028/B: Soil lathe/trimmer and extruder
The apparatus which can be used either as a trimmer or as a sampler consists of:
To reduce samples an open wire saw is required. Can also be used for Consolidation, Shear and Triaxial preparation, by the use of appropriate accessories.
16-D1689: Open wire saw
16-D1690: Wire saw
16-D1691: Trimming knife
Soil versatile sampler, cutter and extruder can be used to extrude and prepare soil samples for the following soil mechanics tests:
- other tests
Various circular, cylindrical and square cutters are available from our range, depending on the geotechnical test to be performed. Accessories for Consolidation, Shear and Triaxial preparation available separately.
The cutter is gently (thank to the rack and pinion mechanism) pushed into the soil core and then extruded with the extrusion dolly.
Laboratory digital planetary mixer is a robust device for the efficient mixing during preparation.
76-B0702: Laboratory planetary mixer, 5 l cap., complete with bowl and whisk
230 V, 50-60 Hz, 1 ph
This model is a table mounted unit with planetary mixing action and a bowl and whisk that are easily fitted and removed. The front grill, when opened, automatically stops the machine for operator protection conforming to CE requirements.
The machine is supplied complete with bowl and whisk.
The machine operates with a dedicated and easy to use display and keyboard interface. Mixing speed can be easily selected (also adjustable during mixing).
76-B0702/H: Isomantle heater for 76-B0702 mixer. 700W, 230 V, 50-60 Hz, 1 ph
16-B0702/9: Stainless steel mixing hook for asphalt mixer 5 liters capacity
