The Aggregate Crushing Value (ACV) Test Set provides a relative measure of the resistance of an aggregate to crushing under a gradually applied compressive load. Each set consists of steel cylinder, plunger, base plate, cylindrical measure and tamping rod. All parts of the apparatus consist of either galvanized steel or a powdered coating which are heat treated and ground before manufacturing, to make it durable and reliable. For aggregates smaller than 10 mm, a 75 mm diameter cylinder and associated equipment are available.
TA-0630 and TA-0640 Test Sets are also used for the Ten Percent Fines Value (TFV) of aggregates according to BS 812:111.
