General description

The Automatic Vicat apparatus, is used to determine the setting time and consistency of the cement mortar by using vicat method. The penetration depth is measured by a sensor with 0.1mm resolution.

Along with hardening process development the penetration depth decreases, when it matches some thresholds pre-defined by standards initial and final setting times are measured and recorded.

The entire test is made in a fully automatic cycle and provides precise and repeatable results. The results are then printed on the integrated printer. The use of this Vicat instrument is extremely simplified by the guiding menu that is available in different languages.
The Automatic Vicat apparatus consist of Windows Software and RS232 Cable, Consistency plunger, Initial needle, Final needle and Mold.
