Consistency And Setting-Time

Apparatus described below have been designed for determining the normal consistency, standard consistency and time of setting of cement and lime in accordance with IS, ASTM, BS and AASHO specifications

Vicat Method
IS: 2645, 2542 (Part-2), 1727, 5513, BS: 12, 146, 915, 1370, 4027, 4246, 4248, ASTM C-91, C-141, C-187,
C-308, C-359, C-472 & AASHO T-129, E-131
The procedure, as recommended in various standards, is for determining the quantity of water required to produce a cement paste of standard consistency. The standard consistency is attained when the 10 mm plunger of the apparatus penetrates the material to a pre-determined depth under free-fall. A new sample is prepared and tested with initial and final needles in accordance with the procedure described in various specifications. Vicat Apparatus consists of a frame bearing a movable rod with a cap at top and a Vicat mould in the form of the frustum of a cone, (80+5)/70 + 5mm dia at the base,(70mm+5mm) /60 mm at the top and 40 mm high, and with a glass base plate of minimum 2.5 mm thickness with various models of Vicat apparatus as per standard specifications. Two models of Vicat Apparatus are offered

Vicat Apparatus with Dashpot
IS: 5513
This apparatus includes Dashpot to facilitate the gentle lowering of the moveable rod.
SCE-1024001
Vicat Mould Split Type, with Clamping Ring
Shrinkage Bar Mould
IS: 10086-1982, IS: 4031
ASTM C 151 also specifies the use of shrinkage bar moulds for the determination of soundness. Length Comparator listed in the concrete section determines the change in length of the specimen. Two models are offered. One is provided with stainless steel smooth reference points and the other is provided with knurled and threaded reference points. Both the models are available as single mould and multiple mould compartments. Each mould is supplied complete with base plate and two reference points per compartment of mould.
Mould size 25 x 25 mm section and 250 mm effective length (Distance between two inner-most of the reference points) The models are available in three kinds of apartments i.e. One, Two, Four with smooth and knurled threaded reference points.

Flow And Workability Of Mortar And Lime


IS: 1727, 2645, 4031,6932 (Part 8)
The Flow Test is carried out on cement mortars, pozzolanas and limes. The specimen is placed on a flow table top which is then raised and dropped through a known height.
SCE-1029
Flow Table, Manually Operated
IS: 5512 - 1983
The Flow table consists of a brass tabletop 250+ 2.5 mm dia, mounted on a rigid stand. The table top is reinforced with equally disposed ribs and allowed to drop through 12 mm by a ground and hardened Manual cam.
SCE-1030
Flow Table, Electrically Operated,
The Flow table consists of a brass tabletop 250+ 2.5 mm dia, mounted on a rigid stand. The tabletop is reinforced with equally disposed ribs and allowed to drop through 12 mm by a ground and hardened cam.
