Unit Test, Malaysia
Sand density cone apparatus dia. 6.5″ (165,1mm)
STANDARD: ASTM D1556/AASHTO T191
Used to determine the in-situ density of fine graned compacted soil. The test consists in digging a hole into the ground and then collect,
dry and weight the sampled soil. The hole is than filled with dry sand from the cone container.
The apparatus consists of:
> Metal double cone assembly with valve
> Metal base with centre hole
> 2 Plastic jar, 5 litres Galvanized against corrosion.
ACCESSORY for S 29-11 KIT:
– Calibrating container
