The handle raises over specimen and slump is measured using the tamping rod engraved in 1 cm increments or with a rule.
Concrete flow table apparatus consists of a double wooden table measuring 700x700 mm hinged at one side. The top table is covered with an inscribed metal plate 2 mm thick.
The steel cone, part of the apparatus, has a top dia. of 130 mm a base dia. of 200 mm and is 200 mm high. Complete with wooden tamping rod. All metal parts are protected against corrosion.
54-C0151/A: Concrete spreading table to EN 12350-5
54-C0151/1: Flow cone
54-C0151/2: Wooden tamping rod
Vebè consistometer test method is used to measure the consistency of stiff to extremely dry concrete. Consistency is measured as the time required for a given mass of concrete to be consolidated by vibrating in a cylindrically shaped mould. The small vibrating table operates at a fixed amplitude and frequency.
Versions available from CONTROLS:
The operating principle is practically identical and the units differ from one to the other in the shape of the container and swivel arm with surcharge weight.
The 50 lb (22.7 kg) surcharge weight required by ASTM C1170-Procedure A, which is part of the 54-C0195/C unit, can be replaced by the 27,5 lb (12,5 kg) sliding weight to Procedure B and/or by the 20 lb (9 kg) sliding weight conforming to ASTM C1176 (see accessories).
Otherwise it's available the equipment conforming to ASTM C1176 supplied along with 20lb (9kg) surcharge weight. In the EN model the weight of the moving part is 2.75 kg.
54-C0195/C1: Sliding weight 12,5Kg (27,5lb) to C0195/Cx
54-C0195/C2: Sliding weight 9Kg (20lb), steel cylinder mould (dia. 150x300mm) and mould fixing plate to make C0195/Cx conforming to ASTM C1176
Compacting factor apparatus consists of two conical hoppers having a hinged trap door attached to the lower end of each hopper, allowing the concrete sample to flow freely into the cylindrical mould.
The hoppers and the mould are mounted onto a rigid steel frame and are easily removable for cleaning. The complete apparatus is protected against corrosion.
54-C0155: Compacting factor apparatus to BS 1881:103
55-C0140: Tamping rod dia. 16 mm x 600 mm
K-Slump tester is used to determine the workability and degree of compaction of fresh concrete after being placed in the forms. It can be used for in-situ measurements or inside test moulds and forms. Results can be correlated against the slump test.
54-C0144: Pocket flow meter for concrete
The operation is very simple: insert the tester into the concrete up to the level of the disc, after 60 seconds, a measuring rod in lowered onto the surface of the concrete and the K-slump is read directly on a scale. The calibrated hollow tube has a dia. of 20 mm.
Kelly ball method is used to determine the penetration of a hemispherical metal weight into freshly mixed concrete, which is related to the workability of the concrete.
54-C0142: Kelly ball
The apparatus consists of a cylinder with one end having a hemispherical shape and the other end fit with a graduated handle. The weight assembly is lowered through a frame into the concrete and the penetration measured.
