Conforming to EN 196-1, 1015-11.

65-L28C0x, L28C1x
models, double testing chamber, 15/300 kN cap., fitted with round platens for testing in compression and flexion cement, mortar, resins and other materials.

AUTOMATIC VICAT APPARATUS


Automatic setting time tester for cement, mortar and gypsum

GENERAL DESCRIPTION

CONTROLS have long tradition in manufacturing automatic setting time testers for cement and mortar. A new generation, the third one, is now available. The new machine has been completely redesigned based on the innovative CVI-TECH philosophy. As with the older generations the test procedure is unchanged, a needle (or a probe) drops freely into a cement sample at regular intervals and in fixed positions. Penetration depth is measured by a sensor with 0,1 mm resolution. Along with hardening process development the penetration depth decreases, when it matches some thresholds pre-defined by Standards initial and final setting times are measured and recorded.

MAIN FEATURES

– New functional and ergonomic design based on the innovative CVi-TECH philosophy invented by CONTROLS througt the recent years

– Advanced electronics technologies providing superior performances and total flexibility combined with simplicity in use

– Easy-to-use double interface: local mode, with large size 4,3″ touch screen color display, and remote mode, with PC

– Supplied complete with PC software for data processing VICASOFT-BASIC

– With PC software VICASOFT-PREMIUM (optional) up to 32 indipendent units can be connected to a single PC via LAN port and hub. All units are remotely controlled. Adopting the multi-test network concept laboratory productivity is maximized

– Integrated graphic printer is available as optional accessory showing both results in numerical format and setting time plot

– Easy setting and storage of user-defined test profiles allowing quick test start

– Large accessibility to the test space

– Practical in-water testing accessory (optional)

– Automatic determination of initial and final setting time
