Standard Compaction Test (ASTM Standard)

Model No.: SET-1213 (B)

ASTM D 558, D 698

Standard Compaction Test ASTM Standard, we manufacture, suppliers and exporters standard compaction test of best quality to our clients in Delhi, India. Civil Lab Equipment manufacturers, construction of the high load structures such paved roads, dams, and other construction projects basically rely on the strength and the stability of the embankments test for soil compaction is used to increase the soil strength. Civil lab standard compaction test apparatus is used in a lab testing determines the maximum density which can be achievable for the soil and uses it as a reference for the further field testing. Loose soil can easily be compacted by using the mechanical equipment to remove any air-voids, which help in dandifying the soils and its dry unit weight is increased. The benefits of doing soil compaction include increasing the stability of the ground, preventing the soil settlement and the frost damage, mitigating undesirable settlement such as foundations, paved roads, and piping of the structures reducing the hydraulic conductivity.

At Civil Lab standard compaction test consists one each of compaction mould steel 100 mm I.D. x 127.3 mm and height x 1000 cc volume, complete with collar and base plate.


  • The apparatus consists of one each compaction mould steel 100 mm I.D. x 127.3mm and height x 1000 cc volume.
  • A base plate and collar.
  • A 2.6 kgs compaction rammer with 310 mm controlled fall.
