Soil Classification
Soil is one of the oldest
forming structures that our planet
is formed from. Soil is a loose
rocky material that is vastly used
in the construction industry.
Hence it is very important to test
the ground soil before construction
and to know the type and
classification of the soil before
any project.
The type of soil can be identified
by several parameters one of
which the percentage of clay, silt
or sand found in its composition.
This classification will determine
the characteristics of the soil used
in the civil engineering project.
02
Other physical parameters such as
moisture content, shear strength,
elasticity, specific gravity, density,
degree of compaction, penetration
resistance, consistency, bearing
capacity, hydraulic conductivity,
permeability and consolidation
can effect the soil characteristics
and behaviour during construction.
The principle of soil mechanics
requires the use of standard
testing methods offered by our
range of equipment and used by
trained and qualified engineers
and technicians.
The testing equipment described
in this section are carefully
designed and manufactured to
the highest international standard
necessary to achieve accurate
and repeatable results in testing
soil material.

The Sieve Shaker imparts a circular
motion to the material being sieved
so that it makes a slow progression
over the surface of the sieve.
At the same time a feature of the
rapid vertical movement agitates
the sample which helps to clear
the sieve apertures and avoid them
blinding.
The shaker is fitted with timer which
can be pre-set for any duration up
to 60 minutes.
This unit will accept 200mm and
300mm diameter sieves.
Wet sieving kits in the appropriate

The Sieve Shaker is powered by an
electromagnetic drive which has
no rotating parts to wear making
it maintenance free and extremely
quiet in operation.
The digital controller is used to set
both the process time and
amplitude setting while a further
control enables the vibration to run
continuously or intermittently.

Sand Equivalent Test
Sand Replacement
Standards: EN 933–8, ASTM D2419, AASHTO T176
The Sand Equivalent Test indicates
the relative portion of undesirable
clay-like or plastic fines and dusts
that occur in granular soils and fine
aggregates passing the No. 4 sieve.
The sample to be tested is placed
in a special solution of calcium
chloride, formaldehyde and glycerine.
After shaking the cylinder, it is
allowed to stand for a 20-minute
sedimentation period.
Readings are then taken on the
cylinder scale for the level of the top
of the clay suspension and for the
sand level.
The “Sand Equivalent” is the sand
reading divided by the clay reading
x 100. When the water content of
a fine-grained soil is reduced below
the plastic limit, shrinkage of the soil
mass continues until the shrinkage
limit is reached.

Electrical Density Gauge
Standards: ASTM D6938, D2950, C1040 and AASHTO T310
The electrical density gauge
measures pavement density indirectly
by measuring its dielectric constant.
It passes a small current through the
pavement, which creates an electrical
sensing field. Density is measured by
the response of this electrical
sensing field to changes in the
pavement’s complex impedance
(consisting of the pavement’s
composite resistivity and dielectric
constant).
The advantage of using the electrical
density gauge is that the readings
can be obtained in seconds.
It contains no radioactive source
and therefore not subject to
radiological controls. More effective
cost control, no licensing or special
training needed, easier to use, light
in weight.

Measurement of Movement
The gauge uses an advanced
micro-processor-based technology
to provide highly-accurate
measurements of density and
moisture that are automatically
computed for direct readouts of wet
density, dry density, moisture content,
percent of moisture, percent of
compaction (Proctor or Marshall),
void ratio and air voids.
The One-dimensional Consolidation
test is used to determine the
consolidation characteristics of
soils of low permeability.
The consolidation is rigidly
constructed to ensure minimum
frame distortion.
The frame is designed to load the
specimen through a yoke assembly
and one of three alternative beam
ratios as 9:1 – 10:1 and 11:1.
The beam is fitted with a counter
balance weight and beam support
check. The cell platform will accept
the complete range of consolidation
cells and is fitted with a central
spigot to ensure accurate centering
of the cell under the loading yoke.
The fixed ring consolidation cells
are manufactured from corrosionresistant materials and conform to
the requirements of the relevant
standards.
An integral water reservoir is
incorporated in the cell which allows
the specimen to be inundated
when required.

and occurs when shear stresses set
up in the soil mass exceed the
maximum shear resistance which
the soil can offer, i.e. its shear
strength.
The Automatic Soil Compactors is
designed to provide a uniform
compaction of Standard, Modified
and CBR specimens assuring
conformity with the reference
standard.
The Compactor is equipped with
programmable digital counter
which allows machine to stop
at the preset numbers of blows.

cement equipment
Cement production process
Cement is one of the ancient raw
materials used in construction.
It is uncertain where it was first
discovered that a combination of
hydrated non-hydraulic lime and
a pozzolan produces a hydraulic
mixture (e.g., Portland cement)
harden because of hydration
chemical reactions that occur
independently of the mixture’s
water content; they can harden
even underwater or when
constantly exposed to wet weather.
Cement is essentially a binder
that binds other materials
together, Modern cements are
manufactured by a chemical
process.
03
Raw materials are crushed,
ground and blended before being
heated in a rotary kiln until
they combine chemically. The
clinker from the kiln is then
ground with gypsum to form
Portland cement.
Different types of cement with
different strengths and
characteristics can be produced
depending on the composition
and quality of clinker, fly ash, silica
fume, retarders, water proofers,
colouring agents and other
additives used in the mix.
It is essential to test the physical
and chemical parameters of each
cement batch produced and to
identify the unique characteristics
of each composition.
Such parameters include specific
surface and gravity of cement
particles, consistency, soundness,
setting time, heat of hydration,
inorganic chemical analysis,
loss on ignition, air content and
strength.

asphalt equipment
production
Asphalt is a sticky, black and
highly viscous liquid or semi-solid
that is present in most crude
petroleum. It is most commonly
used in road construction.
The material consists essentially
of two ingredients, aggregate
and bitumen which is the binder.
A number of technologies allow
this simple mix to have an
almost infinite number of mixtures
which may either be specified
or designed to suit a particular
engineering requirement.
It is therefore important that
equipment and test methods are
used to determine the different
physical and chemical properties
of any given asphalt mix. Such
parameters include binder content,
binder percentage, aggregate
grading, void content, resilient
modulus, indirect tensile fatigue
cracking, creep, softening point,
flash and fire point, water content,
loss in mass, elongation, elasticity,
viscosity and adhesion.

concrete equipment
production
Concrete is used more than
any other man-made material
in the world, it is a composite
construction material composed
of cement (commonly Portland
cement), coarse aggregates,
sand, water and chemical
admixtures.
The word concrete comes from
the Latin word “concretus”
(meaning compact or condensed)
hence, concrete solidifies
and hardens after mixing with
water and placement due to
a chemical process known as
hydration.
The water reacts with the
cement, which bonds the other
components together, eventually
creating a robust stone-like
material that can be moulded
in any shape we desire.
The quality of concrete is
important if structures formed
from this versatile material are to
be safe and serve the purpose for
which they were constructed
therefore, several tests are
conducted to identify the
characteristics and parameters
of concrete.
The testing equipment described
in this section are special selected
to test the physical parameters
of concrete for consistency,
degree of compaction, workability,
setting time, segregation
resistance, confined flowability,
air content, bulk density, specific
gravity, adhesion, water
permeability and strength.

aggregate equipment
production
Aggregate is a component of
a composite material used to
resist compressive stress and
provide bulk to the composite
material. For efficient filling,
aggregate should be much
smaller than the finished item,
but have a wide variety of
sizes.
It is vastly used in most
combination of construction
material such as concrete and
asphalt technology to which
aggregates may either be
specified or designed to suit
a particular engineering
requirement while not suiting
another.
The properties of aggregates
can vary and hence affect the
final construction material.
Therefore it is important to test
the different parameters such as
resistance to polishing, particle
size, shape and texture, relative,
bulk density, crushing value,
impact value, organic impurities,
compacted densities, specific
gravity, soundness and abrasion
resistance.
