The Soil Cement Apparatus Dropping Weight Compactor is used for laboratory preparation of 2.8in (71mm) diameter x 5.6in (142mm) high compressive strength specimens. Soil, cement, water, and aggregates are measured then hand or machine mixed. Specimens are formed using Test Mold Set with 15lb (6.8kg) dynamic loading via Dropping Weight Compactor.
Base of the Soil Cement Apparatus Dropping Weight Compactor has provision for centering bottom piston of the Test Mold Set, and top piston serves as foot of the compaction hammer. Height of drop is controlled by clip arrangement on compactor shaft guide.
Meets Test Methods:
ASTM D 1632
