Automatic Soil Compactor is designed to compact Standard / Modiﬁed and CBR specimens, it ensures an extremely uniform compaction degree, granting reliable and repeatable test results.
The compactor is easy to use, friendly menu driven, of simple and practical maintenance.
Compactor is equipped with programmable digital counter which allows machine to stop at the preset numbers of blows. The height and weight of the rammer is adjustable to suit test requirements. Top quality components and high accuracy mechanical workings grant very long life also under intensive utilizations.
The original lift system of the rammer can be selected at 305 or 457 mm, granting a correct and constant fall height.
This automatic blow pattern ensures eﬀective and equal compaction for each layer of soil by rotating the base table, so the mould, in equal steps and travelling the rammer across the mould.
The table rotates the mould in equal steps and the number of blows per layer can be set at the beginning of the test by the digital counter. User deﬁned blow number and in-out distribution is also available. A standard proctor / CBR switch, emergency stop and start push buttons are located beside the blow counter.
The rammer is circular faced. Rammer weight is adjustable to 2.5 kg or 4.5 kg according to reference standard. When compacting 100 mm diameter specimens the unit operates on a single radius and when compacting 150 mm diameter specimens the unit operates on inner and outer radius to obtain even compaction.
The machine is supplied with one rammer and must selected according to the desired Standard (ASTM or EN) (rammers are interchangeable).
