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.
