Cement / Concrete Testing Equipment

We are offering Soil Testing Equipment, which is supplied with stainless steel penetration test cone 35 mm long with smooth polished surface and an angle of 30 deg. It has a facility for adjusting cone height in relation to the specimen and ensures trouble free operations.

Mortar Penetrometer
It is used for finding out the rate of hardening of mortars sieved from concrete mixtures, by means of penetration needles of different cross-sectional areas.
Salient Features
  • Specifications : The instrument consists of a barrel housing a calibrated spring and a stem graduated from 0-70 kg x 1 kg. Six interchangeable penetration needles of areas 645, 323, 65, 32 and 16mm sq. are provided. The penetration resistance is measured by the force exerted to penetrate the mortar by 25mm and is indicated by a sliding ring on the stem, which is graduated. Needle shanks are marked at every 12.5mm. Compete in a wooden carrying case.

Cone Penetrometer
Flexural tests of concrete beam have their own importance in concrete road constructions as well as buildings constructions. Normally concrete beams of sizes 10cm x 10cm x 50cm or 15cm x 15cm x 70cm are tested for flexural strength.
Salient Features
  • Specifications : Consists of a movable bearing rod to which a cone 145mm. long and 75mm. dia at a base is fixed. The bearing rod passes freely through a bracket which is provided with release mechanism. A dial graduated in mm with rack and pinion is provided for measuring the penetration. Complete with a conical container 150mm ID X 180mm deep and a platform.

Pocket Concrete Penetrometer
For fast evaluation of the initial setting of concrete. It can be used on light weight concrete, special roof deck mixes and concrete additives.
Salient Features
  • Specifications : Consists of a needle having face area 3/10 sq. cm. and graduated at a distance of 25cm. The needles point is an integral part of barrel which houses a calibrated spring. The spring is confined in a sleeve. The resistance offered by the concrete mortar is shown on the direct reading scale with a marker ring which holds its position when released. 2 Scale range is 0-50kg/cm2 when the penetration resistance reaches a 2 value of 35kg/cm2 the concrete is assumed initially set. Supplied complete in carrying case.
