General description

Automatic Soil Compactor is designed to compact specimens automatically and uniformly, assuring conformity with the above listed international standards.

Therefore the principle of the design is to allow the hammer to drop the required height into the soil in the mould which rotates circularly to distribute the blows uniformly over the surface of the specimen in the mold.

The Compactor is equipped with a programmable digital counter which allows the machine to stop at the preset numbers of blows.
The height and weight of the rammer are adjustable to suit test requirements.
The drop weight is adjustable to 300 mm drop height and is also adjustable to 450 mm drop height.
The rammer is circular faced with a 50 mm diameter and is adjustable to 2.5 kg. or 4.5 kg.
An automatic blow pattern ensures effective compaction for each layer of soil and the rammer travels across the mould.
The table rotates the mould in equal steps and the number of blows per layer can be set at the beginning of the test by the digital counter.

Above all the Automatic Soil Compactor is supplied complete with:
Programmable digital counter, adjustable falling height (300 mm, 305 mm, 450 mm, 457 mm) and adjustable weight (2.5 kg, 4.5 kg). ASTM/AASH TO/EN/BS rammer.
