Automatic Mechanical Soil Compactor

Clear

The TS-0660 Automatic Mechanical Compactor is designed to perform fast and accurate compaction of soil samples automatically acc. to ASTM and AASHTO standards. For standard or modified compaction tests with a 5.5 lb. hammer of 12” (305 mm) drop-height or a 10 lb. hammer of 18” (457 mm) drop-height. The Compactor accommodates 4” (102 mm) or 6” (152 mm) I.D. moulds, 4” (102 mm) round hammer or 6” (152 mm) pie-shaped hammer compensate for sample drop during compaction. The total weight of the hammer is concentrated at the foot in order to provide a free-fall action. Hammers can easily be replaced from the front side of the compactor.

The Machine stops automatically after a preset number of ‘blows per compaction’ is completed. The Compaction mould is mounted on the round base; the circular base indexes automatically with each blow to ensure uniform sample compaction. A pie-shaped compactor foot is used with 6” (152 mm) dia. moulds to completely cover the surface of the sample.
