Density Of Fresh And Hardened Concrete
Model No.: SET-1001
The density of fresh as well as hardened concrete is of greater importance for the engineers for a variety of reasons. This includes the effect on strength, durability and resistance to permeability. Hardened concrete density is ascertained through easy dimensional checks or is followed by calculation and the weightage or via buoyancy methods with air/water.
The buoyancy balance provided by Civil Lab Equipment Manufacturer comprises of a robust support frame. The equipment consists of water tank which rests on a platform. A lifting instrument is utilized to uplift the water tank equal to the frame height to immerse the specimen suspended on the cradle below the balance fixed on it.
The equipment supplied by us can also be utilized as proper weighting device, thus dispensing an extensive and versatile weightage system for the laboratory. The sample is weighed in water and air for calculating the density of the new concrete. It is also preferred for ascertaining the slump of fine aggregate for determining defined gravity and absorption of rather fine aggregate.
