Pioneers in Materials Testing


Established in 1990, Cooper Technology is a British company and one of the world leaders in the design and manufacture of
high performance testing equipment for asphalt, bitumen, concrete, cement, soil and aggregates testing equipment used
in civil engineering.
The Nottingham Asphalt Tester (NAT), designed in the 1980s by our Chairman Keith Cooper whilst working at the University of
Nottingham, was the first of its type. Since then our product range has increased steadily and now includes Gyratory Compactors
and Roller Compactors to prepare and compact specimens in addition to Servo-Hydraulic and Servo-Pneumatic Universal Testers,
Triaxial Testers, Fatigue Systems and Wheel Trackers to perform standards.

Why Choose Cooper?


GLOBAL SUPPLIER THAT IS LOCAL ENOUGH TO CARE
As a customer focused business, we listen. The Cooper Technology approach is to first establish customer requirements and
then to offer best advice on the options available in order that customers can make informed decisions. We pride ourselves on
working in partnership with customers rather than just order taking. Our consultative approach ensures that the application
is fully understood before an order is accepted, thus ensuring the equipment ordered is fit for purpose and will deliver the
expected results and reliably day after day and year after year.

DESIGN, DEVELOP, AUTOMATE, TEST


Cooper Technology is much more than a manufacturer: all our machines are fully designed and developed by our dedicated
in-house design team, all our engineers are degree educated in their relevant fields, and every engineering discipline is covered.
Mechanical Design via the use of 3D CAD packages we ensure our business is best positioned to utilise the most state-of-theart geometrical modelling systems available. These systems further permit calculating customer specific solutions within the
shortest possible time.

Awards
Cooper Technology is proud winner of The ICE East Midlands Merit Awards (EMMAs)
2012 for testing equipment in Studies and Research Category. The ICE EMM Awards
are the regions annual celebration of civil engineering excellence. The awards took
place during the annual ICE East Midlands Gala Dinner held on Friday, 7 June 2012
at the Nottingham Belfry Hotel.
Cooper Technology strikes again; after winning the EEFs Future
Manufacturing Business Growth Award 2010, is conferred with
International Business of the year for Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire.
Cooper was declared regional winner at the Roundhouse in Derby on
the 26th of February 2010.

Corporate Social Responsibility


Organisations, like individuals, depend for their survival, sustenance and growth on the support
and goodwill of the communities of which they are an integral part, and must pay back this
generosity in every way they can
We strongly believe that our primary obligation or duty as corporate entity is to our stakeholders
we are just as mindful of the fact that this imperative does not exist in isolation; it is part of
a much larger compact which we have with our entire body of stakeholders- from employees,
customers, business partners, eco-system, local communities, and to society at large.
For us, being socially responsible is not an occasional act of charity or that one-time token
financial contribution to the local school, hospital or environmental NGO. It is an ongoing
year-round commitment, which is integrated into the very core of our business objectives and
strategy.
Because we believe that there is no contradiction between doing well and doing right. Indeed,
doing right is a necessary condition for doing well.
Cooper engages with Colts to Africa
MANUFACTURE ECO-FRIENDLY EQUIPMENT
to help underpriviliged children
Although it is very challenging to manufacture eco-friendly testing equipment for asphaltic and unbound materials, however our
engineers endeavour to work on more energy efficient designs and manufacture energy efficient testing equipment.
As part of our overall commitment to corporate social responsibility, Cooper Technology developed its first eco-friendly testing
equipment called Auto Lift Arm ECO Wheel Tracker in 2010. It is small and compact machine for maximum energy efficiency.
AUTO LIFT ARM ECO WHEEL TRACKER IS 28% MORE ENERGY EFFICIENT THAN ITS PEER WHEEL TRACKING MACHINES.

RESPECT FOR ENVIRONMENT


We understand the importance of environment. At Cooper Technology we try to minimise waste and take every single and even
simple steps like switching off the lights and equipment when not needed, switching off computer monitors during the night,
avoid printing unnecessary emails and recycling paper. We have cut-down hardcopy catalogue printing by 85% and prefer to
promote our product digitally.

Remote Support Service


Cooper Technology provides an easy access, cost effective remote service support program that allows us to fix many issues on
your computer, and Cooper testing equipment, from the comfort of your laboratory or business. All you need to do is download
our custom remote support program and we will do the rest. Once work is completed all traces of the program are removed and
we are unable to access your computer again until you initiate the connection. All connections from our office to your system are
encrypted so you can rest easily knowing that your information is completely safe.
We can fix a large range of problems remotely including, but not limited to:
Software problems
Installation of programs
Software patches
Software upgrades
Maintenance
Program configuration
Tests and PC optimisation
This is just a small list of what can be accomplished remotely and, best of all, you dont even have to be at the system once you
run the program.

Calibration Services
British scientist Lord Kelvin is quoted from his lecture to the Institution of Civil Engineers, 3 May 1883 as saying:

I often say that if you can measure what you are speaking about and express it in numbers you know something about it; but when you
cannot express it in numbers your knowledge is a meagre and unsatisfactory kind; it may be the beginning of knowledge but you have
scarcely, in your thoughts, advanced to the stage of science, whatever the matter may be.
This famous quote emphasises the importance that measurement has in science, industry and commerce.
Prior to dispatch, where appropriate, each piece of our test equipment is calibrated by qualified engineers
using procedures and equipment which is scrutinised annually by the United Kingdom Accreditation
Service (UKAS). The International Laboratory Cooperation (ILAC) links UKAS with accreditation bodies
worldwide. All equipment needs to be UKAS calibrated and traceable to national standards in order
to satisfy typed testing as described in the EN13108. Although equipment from Cooper Technology
normally continues to perform correctly and produce accurate results for many years, over time and
through application there could be some component wear and the output from electronic components
may drift. A highways material laboratory is not an ideal environment for instruments that must, in some
cases, measure displacements within accuracies in excess of one millionth of a metre.

The Benefits of Calibration


To comply with your internal quality assurance policy and to demonstrate a disciplined commitment to sound laboratory
management.
To have the confidence that your test equipment continues to function
correctly and to ensure that it maintains the required level of
measurement accuracy you would expect.
To enhance your customers confidence in a reliable and accurate
testing service.
To gain national and international recognition of your testing and to
help you to access foreign markets where laboratory accreditation is
compulsory.
The equipment needs checking and calibrating at least annually by one
of our fully trained, UKAS approved engineers from Cooper Technology
Calibration Division. On completion of the calibration, our engineer will
provide you with an update on the condition of the equipment, together
with a traceable calibration certificate.

by their experienced and professional staff.
- Jon Watson Laboratory Manager, NTEC, University of Nottingham

I would like to comment on how impressed we are with the new Wheel Tracker ECO Small Device since
we purchased the machine beginning this year. It has been in constant use. The benefit that we have
seen in that this version is fully automated from start to finish, compared to the standard 1 arm wheel
tracker, which is quite a bit labour intensive where you have to physically place the arm/wheel on the
specimen, wait until test temp is achieved before starting the test, and lifting the wheel off the specimen
at the end of the test. Our technicians also find our software a lot more user friendly.
- Dyfed Thomas Laboratory Manager, Celtest Ltd UK

We would like to express our gratitude for organising such a wonderful and excellently conducted
technical training session providing us with a lot of valuable information and knowledge, letting us
work more effectively and offer higher standards of our services.
- Dominik Jutkowiak Viateco Ltd, Poland

Complexlab have sold a number of Cooper equipment in the past 10 years, we find the product quality
and service we receive to be of an exception level.
- Sos Andrs Managing Director, COMPLEXLAB KFT

DESCRIPTION
This machine is a development of the NAT which was
developed by Keith Cooper and Professor Steven Brown at
the University of Nottingham. The use of a high precision
servo-pneumatic valve in conjunction with a low-friction
actuator and sophisticated data acquisition and control,
results in a performance that is equal to many servohydraulic systems.
Accurate, digitally generated waveforms are applied by
the actuator producing repeatable stress variations in test
specimens that are simulative of those in a road pavement
due to moving traffic. The actuator is double-acting allowing
both compressive and tensile forces to be applied. A triaxial
cell system is available for the measurement of the resilient
modulus of unbound materials.

KEY FEATURES
Low cost dynamic loading universal test system ideally
suited to testing asphalt and unbound granular materials
Double acting low friction actuator with integral stroke
transducer
Utilises high performance ceramic spool servo-valve
High quality stainless steel frame
Issued with UKAS accredited certificate of calibration for
EN 12697-24; EN 12697-25, EN 12697-26
Accessories available to perform a range of standard and
non standard test methods

IAN 73/06-DESIGN GUIDANCE FOR ROAD PAVEMENT


FOUNDATIONS

DESCRIPTION
The Precision Unbound Material Analyser (PUMA) is a new type
of laboratory test equipment designed to fill the gap between
expensive and complex laboratory tools (such as triaxial
cells) and more empirical methods (such as the California
Bearing Ratio test). It is designed to generate realistic values of
modulus for use in road pavement design.
The PUMA can be
used to test unbound,
hydraulically bound
and asphaltic materials.
It has been designed
as a low cost, easy
to use and practical
tool, but one which is
capable of generating
scientifically meaningful
data (Modulus and
Resistance to Permanent
Deformation), for use in
road pavement design.
It can be used to test
specimens made from
granular material, soil or
lightly stabilized material etc, with a maximum particle size of
31.5mm.
The PUMA is proposed as a direct equivalent to the Springbox,
with the advantage that initial stress conditions can be
accurately controlled. It is a simple test, suited to generic
specification, that holds the promise of increased confidence
in pavement foundation design, particularly in cases where
favourable weather conditions during construction result in
unrepresentatively high Dynamic Plate Test (DPT) values, or in
cases where stabilised soils or cold-mix asphalt are employed.

KEY FEATURES
Designed for use within a UTM loading frame
Compatible with existing loading systems currently used
for asphalt testing
Compaction can be carried out using existing vibrating
hammer equipment
Flexibility to alter stress conditions (vertical and horizontal)
and the number of load cycles if desired
Possibility to carry out the test directly under DPT
equipment in order to simulate as closely as possible the
likely in-situ value
Equipment is applicable to all unbound materials with
particle size up to 31.5mm.
Suitable for tests on hydraulically bound materials

Saturated Ageing Tensile Stiffness (SATS) Test

STANDARDS
EN12697-45

DESCRIPTION
The Saturated Aging Tensile Stiffness (SATS) test was
developed by Professor Andrew Collop and co-workers of
University of Nottingham. The test is a combined ageing/
moisture sensitivity test to evaluate the performance of
macadam coated binder course and base mixtures.
The test involves the positioning of core samples in a high
ressure (21 bar air) and high temperature (85C) environment
for 4 days to prematurely age the sample. These samples
are then tested in the Nottingham Asphalt Tester/ NU14 to
measure the tensile strength of the core samples.
This test has been adopted by the UK Highways Agency as a
compulsory QC test method for any asphalt that is supplied
to them. This requirement came into force in autumn 2007.
Due to the high pressures that are used in this test, the
equipment must be constructed in a suitable fashion. This
equipment is used by a number of leading asphalt suppliers
in the UK.

ASPHALT CRACKING
PRODUCT CODE
CRT-TOT

Texas Overlay Tester

STANDARDS
ASTM WK26816 (Proposed draft); TEX-248-F

DESCRIPTION
In recent years many mixture design methods have produced
materials that are stiffer, leaner and more resistant to
rutting, however, such materials are often more susceptible
to fatigue and reflection cracking. The Texas Overlay Tester
(CRT-TOT) was designed to simulate the expansion and
contraction movements that occur in the vicinity of joints
or cracks and which result in reflection cracking in overlays.
With the CRT-TOT it is possible to characterise both the
crack initiation and crack propagation properties of asphalt
mixtures.

Cooper Technology has developed the CRT-TOT, which is a


dedicated, state-of-the-art piece of equipment for carrying
out this test.
Increasing bitumen content will significantly improve the
reflective cracking resistance of asphalt mixtures and
materials with low resistance can fail in minutes. TOT results
have correlated well with field performance and have shown
good correlation with both beam fatigue test results and the
low temperature performance of asphalt mixtures in the
field. The test is rapid and has been shown to be repeatable.
The TOT is performed on standard size samples, typically 6
inch (150 mm) long by 3 inch (75 mm) wide by 0.5 to 1.5 inch
(12mm to 38 mm) high. These specimens can be cut from
field cores or from laboratory compacted specimens, which
can be prepared with the Cooper Gyratory Compactor
(CRT-GYR).
The specimen is precisely positioned and glued to two base
plates using the gluing frame (CRT-TOT-GLUE). This glued
assembly is put into the machine using the zero stress
carrying frame. Sample dimension and test conditions are
entered through the surface mounted Cooper TOUCH+
touch-screen panel. A test can be instantly started by the
user, or will commence after a target test temperature has
been reached.

CRT-TOT

32

ASPHALT / BITUMEN
A triangular waveform in constant deformation mode
is applied, alternately extending and compressing the
specimen so as to simulate the movement of the cracked,
rigid material under the overlay. The test will automatically
stop when the test end conditions have been met.
It is suggested that the TOT could complement mixture
design methods where the emphasis is mainly on resistance
to rutting thus ensuring that mixtures are not too lean and
prone to cracking. It will also provide the means of assessing
different binders and binder modifiers.
A proposed new ASTM International standard for Determining
the Susceptibility of Bituminous Mixtures to Reflective
Cracking using the Texas Overlay Tester is currently under
development. It is hoped that this International standard
will improve the test method by providing a unified sample
preparation procedure as well as overall improved precision.
The CRT-TOT will, of course, meet any changes prescribed in
this new standard.

DESCRIPTION
The OEM-Cooper Thermal Stress Restrained Specimen Test
(TSRST) is used to determine the low temperature cracking
susceptibility of asphalt concrete. In the early 1990s the
TSRST was developed by OEM with Oregon State University
(OSU) as part of the Strategic Highway Research Program
in the USA. The test method became AASHTO TP10. This
method has now been updated and there is a proposed new
AASHTO standard - Determining Thermal Cracking Properties
of Asphalt Mixtures through Measurement of Thermally
Induced Stress & Strain.
The TSRST test has also been included as one of the tests
within EN12697-46. OEM-Cooper have developed the TSRST
device to perform tests included in this standard. Now as a
multipurpose low temperature testing machine the TSRST
has been renamed the Asphalt Pavement Thermal Testing
System (APTTS).

CRT-APTTS

With over 20 years of experience, and as the original


developers of the TSRST OEM-Cooper are the recognised
word experts in the field.

KEY FEATURES
Cool or heat an asphaltic concrete specimen at a constant
rate or hold a constant temperature
Simulate actual field conditions with user programmable
temperature profiles
Perform cyclic temperature testing
Minimises radial and/or transverse forces with dual clevis
and rod end assemblies

SOFTWARE
The TSRST4.5 software controls your test, logs data, plots the
data points and produces graphs.

EQUIPMENT

ACCESSORIES

A stepper-motor driven screw-jack applies tensile strain or


maintains the specimen in a static position.
Two or four Linear Variable Differential Transformers
(LVDTs) monitor changes in the length of the specimen,
while the load cell monitors the tensile load. Spring-loaded
guide rods mounted between the upper and lower platens
minimise unwanted tensile stress due to gravity. Two or four
Resistance Temperature Devices (RTDs), are used to monitor
air or specimen temperature. An environmental cabinet RTD
senses the enclosure temperature.

TESTING
Position the prepared asphaltic concrete specimen
perpendicular and central to the platens using the Specimen
Alignment Stand. Epoxy the specimen ends to both platens.
Place the specimen in the environmental cabinet, attach
the transducers and adjust the LVDTs, run the required test
procedure. On completion of the required test period, or at
test failure the APTTS software will stop the test and adjust
the cabinet temperature as required.

Two Point Trapezoidal Bending


Beam Machine

STANDARDS
EN 12697-24 Annex A; EN 12697-26 Annex A; NF-P98-260-2

DESCRIPTION
The two-point bending test on trapezoidal specimens is,
arguably, the most repeatable and reproducible bending test
method detailed in the relevant EN12697
standards.
In this test the specimen is
mounted as a vertical cantilever. The base
is fixed and the top is moved sinusoidally
with a constant displacement amplitude.
The trapezoidal shape ensures that the
maximum values of bending stress and
strain occur away from the ends of the
specimen where there are likely to be stress
concentrations. With the Cooper Technology
equipment, two or four trapezoidal
specimens are tested simultaneously and
stiffness modulus can be determined at a
range of frequencies and temperatures.
In the fatigue test the specimens are
subjected to a constant strain amplitude at
a selected frequency and temperature until
the stiffness modulus decreases to a userselected target level (normally 50 percent of
its initial value).

Wheel tracking is used to assess the resistance to rutting of


asphaltic materials under conditions which simulate the effect
of traffic. In this machine, two 500 x 180mm specimens are
tested simultaneously by tracking with wheels fitted with
pneumatic tyres under specified conditions of load, speed
and temperature while the development of the rut profile is
monitored at specified intervals during the test. The moulded
specimens are inserted and removed from the Wheel Tracker
using an Easy-load system.
A unique instrumented measurement device, linked to the
data acquisition, is used to measure the development of
rutting during testing. The test procedure and conditions
are controlled and data acquired using Windows software
running on a host computer via a high speed digital interface
and signal conditioning system.

Hamburg Wet & Dry Wheel Tracker

STANDARDS
EN 12697-22; AASHTO-T324; TEX-242-F

DESCRIPTION
The Hamburg type dual arm immersion Wheel Tracker
is widely used to evaluate the resistance to rutting and
moisture susceptibility of asphalt mixtures following either
EN12697-22 or AASHTO-T324.
The device was developed in the 1970s by Esso A.G. of
Hamburg, Germany. It was based on the TRL wheel tracker
which is also now included in EN12697-22. Originally the
Hamburg test was used by the City of Hamburg to measure
rutting susceptibility.
The test was performed for 9,540 wheel passes at either
40 or 50C. Water was used to obtain the required test
temperature rather than air. The City of Hamburg later
increased the number of wheel passes to 19,200 and found
that some mixtures began to deteriorate from moisture
damage. Greater than 10,000 wheel passes was generally
needed to show the effects of moisture damage.
Specimens can be prepared in the laboratory, or cores taken
from the road can be used. Loaded steel or rubber wheels
track a sample under regulated load, speed and temperature,
whilst the development of the rut is constantly monitored
and recorded throughout the test.

Prall Tester

STANDARDS
EN 12697-16 Method A

DESCRIPTION
Studded tyres greatly reduce skidding and accidents on snow
or ice covered roads. However, all too often the studs come
into contact with the road surface. The use of studded tyres
is very costly in terms of annual load wear. Additionally, as
the studded tyres wear the pavement they eventually cut ruts
in the road that can fill with water to create a hydroplaning
hazard in wet weather. A further issue is the polluting dust
that is created. The Prall Test (Method A) has proved to be the
most successful way to investigate abrasion due to studded
tyres. At the same time reproducibility has been an issue. At
Cooper we have assessed the aspects of the test crucial to
performance and improved them, via the fitment of a second
test chamber, thus significantly reducing variability.
The CRT-PRALL is designed to carry out the Prall Test according
to EN12697-16 Method A in which a cylindrical specimen of
asphalt having a diameter of 100mm and a length of 30mm
is tested at a temperature of 5C. The specimen is worn by
abrasive action over a standard time period of 15 minutes by
40 steel spheres. The loss of volume in millilitres is recorded
and reported as the abrasion value.

GYRATORY COMPACTOR
PRODUCT CODE
CRT-GYR

Gyratory Compactor

STANDARDS
AASHTO T312 (TP4), ASTM D6925, SHRP M-002,
T 0736-2011, EN 12697-10, EN 12697-31

DESCRIPTION
Gyratory compaction is considered to be one of the best
methods of laboratory compaction for the assessment of
compactibility and the manufacture of test specimens.
Compaction is achieved by the application of a vertical
stress (normally 600KPa) via end platens to a known mass of
asphaltic mixture within a 100 or 150mm internal mould.
The longitudinal axis of the mould is rotated (gyrated) at a
fixed angle to the vertical whilst the platens are kept parallel
and horizontal.
During compaction the height of the sample is automatically
measured and both the mixture density and void content
calculated. The compaction data is shown on-screen in
graphical and tabular format as compaction progresses
and it is also saved in Microsoft Excel compatible format.
The operator can choose whether to compact for a certain
number of gyrations or until a target mixture density or void
content is achieved.
Problems with existing compactors are mainly related to build
quality and ease of use. Unlike most compactors 100 and
150mm moulds can be tested without changing machine
parts. A filled Gyratory Compactor mould is heavy and often
very hot.
In many cases these moulds have
to be lifted in and out of Gyratory
Compactors. With the CRT-GYR no
lifting of filled moulds is required.
They are automatically lowered into
position for compaction and then lifted
up again for transfer to the integrated
demoulding system.

KEY FEATURES
Automatic mould insertion and retraction on side table
which allows cooling time before extraction without loss
of compaction time (especially important for rubberised
asphalt)
150 mm and 100 mm (6 and 4 inch) internal moulds can
be tested without changing parts
Cold mix (emulsion) materials can be compacted and the
expelled fluid collected
Ethernet and multiple USB connections for data acquisition
and control system

ASPHALT SLAB COMPACTOR


PRODUCT CODE
CRT-RCMP

Pneumatic Multi Purpose Roller Compactor

STANDARDS
EN 12697-33 Steel roller; ASTM D04-WK34713;
ASTM work item

DESCRIPTION
The CRT-RCMP is pneumatically powered and controlled by a
programmable logic controller (PLC) connected to a human
machine interface (HMI) which the operator can use to select
the number of passes and compaction load levels. Although
the primary function is to produce slabs for wheel tracking
tests, the slabs can be sawn into beams or cored to provide
specimens for a variety of other tests. Users have compacted
hot asphaltic materials over stress absorbing membrane
interlayers (SAMIs) on a base of cracked concrete in order
to assess the effectiveness of the SAMI by using shear or
bending tests.

KEY FEATURES
Steel wheeled roller segments
Solid machine frame
Model for compaction of variable mould sizes
Slabs can be used as wheel tracking specimens, cored to
make indirect tensile test specimens or sawn into beam
fatigue specimens
Roller Compactor moulds will fit Cooper Wheel trackers
so that compacted slabs can be wheel tracked without
de-molding
Maximum compaction load of 30 kN per 305mm roll width
(equivalent to largest on-site static rollers)
Speed control
HMI for operator selection of number of passes and
compaction levels
Vibrating roller option with adjustable frequency to
simulate on-site vibratory rollers. This reduces the
compactive effort required
Safety enclosure with interlocked doors to prevent
unguarded operation

DESCRIPTION
The Roller Compactor is considered to be the method of
laboratory specimen compaction that results in slabs of
asphaltic paving materials with properties that most closely
simulate those of materials in the highway. Slabs can be
compacted to target mixture densities using loads that are
equivalent to those of full-scale compaction equipment.
The CRT-RC-H2 is hydraulically powered and controlled by a
programmable logic controller (PLC) connected to a human
machine interface (HMI) which the operator can use to select
the number of passes. A manual pressure control is adjusted
to set the required load. The main function CRT-RC-H2 is to
produce slabs for beam fatigue and wheel tracking tests.

KEY FEATURES
Steel wheeled roller segments
Solid machine frame
Optional heated head for reducing mixture sticking to
roller during compaction
Model for compaction of 320 x 260mm and 305 x 400 mm

Slab depth from 40 to 135 mm
Slabs can be used as wheel tracking specimens, and cored
to make indirect tensile test specimens or cut into beams
for 4 Point Bending Test
Roller Compactor moulds will fit Cooper Wheel Trackers
so that compacted slabs can be wheel tracked without
de-moulding
Maximum compaction load of 30kN per 305 mm roll width
(equivalent to largest on-site static rollers)

DESCRIPTION
To carry out any form of testing requires straight & clean
sided core samples. Vibration of a diamond core drill during
the coring process will result in a badly finished core that
will need to be dressed before any meaningful testing can
be carried out. In addition vibration of a core drill will also
quickly damage the diamond cutting face by erosion of the
individual diamonds resulting in rapid wear rates.
Coring should always be carried out using a rigid, stable &
vibration free operating platforms to ensure the integrity of
core samples.

SPECIFICATIONS

EN 12274-4

DESCRIPTION
The Slurry Surfacing Cohesion Tester is used to determine the
minimum cohesion of a slurry surfacing mix which enables the
set time and trafficability time to be determined. According to
EN 12274-4, torque measurements are taken on five samples
of the same slurry mix at suitable intervals after casting. This
gives a picture of the cohesion build up in the slurry.
Historically EN 12274-4 was
carried out with manual
equipment with which torque
was generated by hand using
a torque screwdriver. The
requirement of the standard
is to apply a rotation of
between 90 and 120 in 0.5
to 0.7 seconds. This gives
not only a wide range of
conditions, but also a very
difficult set of conditions to
achieve and monitor, and has
inevitably led to results which
have a high dependence on
the operator. Coupled with
this there is also a source
of inaccuracy in the way the
torque is measured. As the
torque meter is placed at the
rear of the through rod cylinder the friction in the seals of
the actuator will oppose the rotational motion and thus an
additional torque is generated which shows up in the torque
reading. The friction in the seals is also likely to change as the
machine ages and thus results on a nominally similar sample
can be different from one day to the next.
Cooper Technologys Slurry Surfacing Cohesion Tester Automatic, CRT-SSCT-A eliminates operator error by fully
automating the application of both the force and the rotation,
and also eliminates errors due to seal friction by measuring
the torque with a torque cell which is placed directly behind
the rubber foot.

KEY FEATURES
No operator error, fully automated solution
Powerful stepper motor ensures both accurate rotation
angle and application time
Precision torque cell with digital peak hold display for super
accurate and repeatable measurements
Torque measurement below the cylinder to eliminate
errors due to seal friction

DESCRIPTION
The Cooper Vialit Plate Adhesion Tester CRT-VPAT is used
to evaluate binder aggregate adhesivity by vialit plate shock
test method. This method is an indicator of aggregate
retention for chippings. The adhesion between binder and
chippings form the basis of successful surface dressing.
Asphalt emulsion or hot binder is applied to stainless steel
plates and aggregates are embedded in the binder using hand
operational rubber wheel roller, which is fitted with bearings
to ensure consistent, smooth rolling action. The prepared test
plate is turned over and placed on 3 pointed support rods.
Stainless steel ball is made to fall from an angled slide three
times within 10 seconds period onto the inverted test plates.
The results are recorded as percent aggregate retention.

DESCRIPTION
The TAS-0115 Travelling Beam Device is used to check
for any irregularities in both concrete and bituminous road
surfaces. The apparatus consists essentially of a 3 meter
length beam with rigid wheels at the extremities and wheels
in the middle.
A sensing unit comprising a wheel connected to an indicator
provides a magnification of 4:1. Deviation of the surface
from a straight-line is shown on a scale calibrated in
increments of 2 mm in the 0-10 mm range and 5 mm
increments in the 10-25 mm range. It comprises a manual
dye marker which is used to mark irregular surface sections
when found.

DESCRIPTION
The Cooper-Wessex Pendulum Skid Tester CRT-PENDULUM is
the high quality skid resistance testing equipment. Originally

developed in the 1960s at the UK Transport Research
Laboratory for the testing of road surfaces.

CRT-PENDULUM

CRT-PEND-885/1200

CRT-PEND-SPFEET
The CRT-PENDULUM measures the frictional resistance
between a rubber slider mounted on the end of a pendulum
arm and the test surface. This provides highway engineers
with a routine method of checking the resistance of wet and
dry surfaces to slipping and skidding, both in the lab and on
site.
It is based on the Izod principle: a pendulum rotates about a
spindle attached to a vertical pillar. At the end of the tubular
arm a head of known mass is fitted with a rubber slider.
The pendulum is released from a horizontal position so that
it strikes the sample surface with a constant velocity. The
distance travelled by the head after striking the sample is
determined by the friction of the sample surface. A reading of
Skid Resistance is obtained.

DESCRIPTION
Vialit Cohesion Pendulum by Cooper CRT-VCP is a testing
device to analyse the cohesion of bitumen in road construction.
The cohesion is one of the measures of the performance of a
bituminous binder. It is important to use binders which have
a sufficient level of cohesion according to the level of traffic to
be supported.
Cohesion has originally been developed for surface dressing
however it can be used for any type of binder
(pure, modified or fluxed) which is to be used in different
types of road applications. Knowledge of cohesion enables
the choice of binder type for given traffic and site conditions.

can perform Multi-Stress Creep and Recovery Test (MSCR).
MSCR is a relatively new method for testing asphalt binders
which is performed on the CRT-DSRII. The test applies to both
modified & neat (unmodified) asphalt binders, with results
relating to both rutting characteristics and the effectiveness of
elastomeric modification. This method is detailed in
AASHTO TP 70-09.

The diagram above demonstrates a key advantage of the CRTDSRIIs temperature control. Despite the fact that a typical
Peltier system appears to change setpoint in temperature
very rapidly, the actual sample temperature, as evidenced
by the modulus (G*) reading, responds very slowly. With the
CRT-DSRII principle, the G* reading almost instantaneously
tracks changes in temperature setpoint - giving a stable G*
reading much more quickly. This is the key to not only high
throughput, but reliable data.

DESCRIPTION

DESCRIPTION

The Bending Beam Rheometer (CRT-BBR) measures flexural


creep stiffness of asphalt binder at low temperatures
(ambient to -40C). A constant load is applied to the centre
of a small asphalt beam specimen, and the deflection of
the beam is measured and recorded. Tests are quickly and
easily set up and parameters input through the included PC
with pre- installed software. Load, displacement, and bath
temperature
are displayed
and
displacement,
loading, and
temperature
graphs are
displayed
throughout
the test cycle.
Stiffness is
calculated at
the lowest
temperature
anticipated.
CRT-BBR
CRT- BBR is constructed of stainless steel and durable, highstrength polymer components. The unit uses an air bearing
system (50 PSIG minimum, clean, dry compressed air source
required) to assure reliable loading with accurate and
repeatable results. A linear variable displacement transducer
(LVDT) with a range of 6.35mm and accuracy to 2?m measures
deflection. The temperature-compensating 500g load cell with
mechanical overload protection ensures accurate load results.
Safe, rapid cooling of the test fluid (Ethylene Glycol/Water/
Methanol) to -40C (-40F) is provided by the mechanical
refrigeration system. Process temperature is controlled and
monitored by two independent platinum RTD temperature
transducers to maintain temperature stability.
The CRT-BBR includes a computer with pre-loaded control,
acquisition, and analysis software, five aluminum specimen
Molds with mylar strips, a Calibration Kit with required weights,
and Confidence Beam. Calibrated test weights and a certified
LVDT NIST-traceable standard are provided with each system.
The easy-to-use software allows daily verification and periodic
calibration of load cell, LVDT, and RTD transducers.

DESCRIPTION
The TAS-0126 Automatic Digital Penetrometer is used for
determination of the needle penetration according to
EN 1426, ASTM D5 and AASHTO T49 standards. The
penetration depth of the needle is determined with a pulse
type electronic measuring system, which is separated from
the plunger during the test, this allows the free guidance of
the plunger which virtually eliminates friction during the test.
Before each start of the test the measuring system
automatically resets, and then the penetration needle moves
down to the sample by using the electric drive, the needle
position can be finely adjusted by using the joystick located
on the front panel.

A magnifying glass and an ultra- bright LED lamp are supplied


to assist the operator; the plunger is then automatically
released onto the sample and raised automatically after the
testing period.
The test result is displayed on the digital display. The plunger
can easily be removed to calibrate its weight.
A water bath (TGE-4000 or TGE-4050, 250.1C) and
a thermometer (IP38, ASTM 17C or 63C) required for the test
should be ordered separately

DESCRIPTION
The TAS-0135 test set is used for
determining the water content of
bituminous materials. The test is
based on distilling the sample with a
volatile solvent.
The material to be tested is heated
under reflux with a water immiscible
solvent, which distills together with
the water in the sample. Condensed
solvent and water are continuously
separated in a trap, the water settles
in the graduated section of the trap,
and the solvent returns to the still.

DESCRIPTION
The Superpave PG binder specification looked for tests which
would closely simulate field performance. Hotmix asphalt
binder experiences significant ageing during the manufacturing
and laying process. Investigating this phenomenon within a
laboratory environment, with a repeatable and simple test is
very useful within the design process.
The Rolling Thin Film Oven (RTFO) test is used to measure the
effect of heat and air on a moving film of semi-solid asphalt
binder. The results of this treatment are determined from
measurements of the binder properties before and after the
test.
Repeatability of the test is directly related to the accuracy
with which the oven temperature can be maintained and
the reproducibility of the thermal rise time of the system.
The invention of RTFO by James Cox & Sons (Part of the
Cooper Group) led to the present day AASHTO, ASTM and EN
standards for Rolling Thin Film Oven test.

Advanced Testing systems are ideal systems that can be used


by research centers, R&D laboratories and Universities.Those
Systems are modular systems that can be build according to
the customer requirements and needs. Our advanced testing
system is user-friendly equipment that allow user to rapid test
setup and execution. The main advantage of the advanced
testing system is the modularity.
The main item is the TC-4850, TC-4860 and TC-4870 Advanced
Servo-controlled Automatic Power Packs with proportional
and servo-valve. All compression, flexure or tensile testing
frames can be connected to those power pack. Thus any test
configuration can be designed to make wide range of
applications including, Elastic modulus, Poissons ratio,
fracture toughness, post peak residual strength, energy
absorption, rock triaxial and also conventional failure tests.
Advanced Testing systems can do tests under control of Load /
Stress, Displacement and Strain Rate depend on power pack
used. You can find the detailed information about frames,
power packs and accessories in different sections of this
catalogue.

perform tests under load and displacement controls. The
frequency of the P.I.D controller and data acquisition is 1000
Hz.
TC 4850 and 4860 Automatic power packs are designed
to supply the required oil to the load frames for loading,
unloading or low cycle dynamic testing. All the operations of
Data Acquisition and Controls System can be controlled from
the touch screen front panel of a 240x320 LCD display or
computer.
The TC-4850 and TC-4870 can control up to 2 different frames,
TC-4860 and TC-4880 up to 4 frames. For each frame there
is one load cell (or pressure transducer) input and one
displacement transducer input for control. There are an extra
three analogue channels for other sensors such as load cells,
pressure transducers, displacement transducers etc. built
in the system. The power pack automatically controls and
supplies oil to the frame which is chosen by the user via the
touch screen LCD digital control unit or by choosing the test
type from the computer software.
The type of displacement transducer can be TTL or analogue
(It must be same type for all frames).

DESCRIPTION
Unbounded Capping method is used as alternative to the
sulphur hot capping of concrete cylinder specimens. The pads
even out irregularities, distributing the test load uniformly to
ensure reliable strength results. Pads are reusable for many
tests.

The versatile Flexural Testing Frames are designed for


minimum deflection at maximum load resulting in very high
accuracy. The load frame is a welded steel fabrication carrying
the ram fitted to the upper crosshead. All frames have a single
acting down stroking ram with over travel switch protection to
shut the machine down when maximum ram travel is reached.
The return of the ram is done by dead weight or spring to get
maximum accuracy on the load measurement. A load cell
is used for load measurements on all frames. Each model
is designed to accept all accessories required for flexural,
transverse or compression tests. Flexural Frames TC-5600
model is 200 kN capacity U type and TC-5700 is a 300kN C
type open structure designed to allow easy and practical front
loading of the specimen. The very rigid C type design is ideal
either for conventional flexural test or for more sophisticated
tests such as deformability and ductility index. The load frame
provides the stability needed for accurate and repeatable test
results over the years of operation.
All frames can be connected to our any compression machine
as a second frame or can be used with any power pack
supplied by us as an independent Flexural Machine. Flexural

DESCRIPTION

600 kN capacity Flexural Frame is designed for minimum


deflection at maximum load resulting in very high accuracy.
The load frame is a four column design carrying the ram fitted
to the upper crosshead. The frames have a single acting down
stroking ram with over travel switch protection to shut
the machine down when maximum ram travel is reached. The
return of the ram is done spring to get maximum accuracy
on the load measurement. A load cell is used for load
measurements on the frame.

The frame of machine is designed torsionally stiff up to the


maximum load of 300 kN with anti-rotation system to prevent
the natural tendency to rotate the columns of frame. The
four columns of frame are clamped with zero clearance. Test
cylinder mounted on the top crosshead has double-action
with long piston stroke in servo slide quality (particularly low
friction). The displacement measurement is achieved through
the displacement transducer built in piston.
A directly actuated servo-valve is mounted on the test cylinder,
to ensure a quick and highly precise process during testing.
An anti-rotation device prevents twisting the piston rod from
twisting with the top bending beam and the precision load
cell. The test chamber contains adjustable supports. The top
bending beam can be very easily modified from the 3 point
test to the 4 point test. Optionally, other test devices are
available for installation. The drive and controls are located in
the separate power pack.
POWER PACK
The power pack contains a hydraulic pump and a fine flow oil
filter. The hydraulic unit consists of a high-pressure radial
piston pump. All operating and control elements are located
on the power pack. The powerpack consists of oil level
indicator, high temperature indicator, mechanical filter
clogged indicator and cooling unit.
Different tests with automatic test sequence can be performed
by help of the free software.
The accessories for different tests should be ordered
seperately.

The efficient mixing of concrete is essential if quality


specimens are to be manufactured. Pan type mixers are
suitable for mixing small quantities of concrete in the
laboratory.
The TC-0750 Pan Type
Concrete Mixer is designed to
give efficient mixing of both
dry and wet materials. The
mixing pan is removable and
tilts for easy access to the pan
and emptying on completion
of the mixing operation. The
total volume of the pan is
108 litres but the effective
capacity of the mixer is 56
litres.
The mixer head lifts clear to
provide maximum access to
the pan and holds the mixing
blades at a constant depth
during the mixing operation. The blades can be adjusted to
suit the different types and volume of materials to be mixed.
The pan type mixer is also equipped with rubber wheels
which provide high portability. All parts of the IP55 protected
mixer are non-corrosive painted and galvanized.
The TC-0760 drum
type mixer is used
for efficient mixing
of concrete, plaster
and mosaic. TC-0760

GYRATORY COMPACTOR
PRODUCT CODE

Gyratory Compactor

STANDARDS
AASHTO T312 (TP4), ASTM D6925, SHRP M-002,
T 0736-2011, EN 12697-10, EN 12697-31

DESCRIPTION
Gyratory compaction is considered to be one of the best
methods of laboratory compaction for the assessment of
compactibility and the manufacture of test specimens.
Compaction is achieved by the application of a vertical
stress (normally 600KPa) via end platens to a known mass of
concrete mixture within a 100 or 150mm internal mould.
The longitudinal axis of the mould is rotated (gyrated) at a
fixed angle to the vertical whilst the platens are kept parallel
and horizontal.
During compaction the height of the sample is automatically
measured and both the mixture density and void content
calculated. The compaction data is shown on-screen in
graphical and tabular format as compaction progresses
and it is also saved in Microsoft Excel compatible format.
The operator can choose whether to compact for a certain
number of gyrations or until a target mixture density or void
content is achieved.
Problems with existing compactors are mainly related to build
quality and ease of use. Unlike most compactors 100 and
150mm moulds can be tested without changing machine
parts. A filled Gyratory Compactor mould is heavy and often
very hot.

KEY FEATURES
Automatic mould insertion and retraction on side table
which allows cooling time before extraction without loss of
compaction time
150 mm and 100 mm (6 and 4 inch) internal moulds can
be tested without changing parts
Ethernet and multiple USB connections for data acquisition
and control system
User-friendly LabVIEW software displays results in real

DESCRIPTION
The TC-1035 Semi-Automatic Grinding Machine provides fast
grinding of cylinder specimen ends to obtain plane and parallel
surfaces according to EN and ASTM standards. The only
differance between automatic machine and semi-automatic
machine is that the cradle of the semi-automatic machine is
moved toward the
grinding wheel by
the user.
The grinding process
is automatic except
the movement of
the cradle for semiautomatic machine.
The optimum cycle to
be applied by user is
5-6 cycle/per minute.
Three units of 38 to
100 mm or two units
of 150-160 mm
concrete
cylinders
ends can be ground
simultaneously with
the suitable cradle
and water restraint
panel. The length of
the specimen must
be longer than 70
mm.
The Planeness and the perpendicularity of the test cylinder
ends are in accordance with ASTM and EN standards. The
Planeness accuracy of grinded surface is 0.05 mm. The
deviation of O perpendicularity of the side with reference to
the end faces is 5 . The cradle which specimens are fixed on
has automatic bidirectional radial displacement ability. The
safe and ergonomic design prevents the user to exposure to
water and dust and provides easy access to the water inlet
and outlet.
Specimen cradles and water restraint panels can easily be
installed without the need for any assembly. Mobility of the
machine is achieved with the help of the integral wheels, and
all components of the system can be safely accessed for easy
maintenance. The machine is manufactured from stainless
steel for resistance to corrosion.

Metal Locator (BOSCH)

DESCRIPTION
The Bosch PDO Multi Digital Detector locates a variety of
metal and wooden structures behind walls with the highest
recision, ensuring safety before drilling into the wall. Invest in
a reliable detector such as the Detector PDO Multi rather than
have a water pipe or power cable repaired afterwards.
The PDO Multis large,
easy-to-read display
uses a bar display to
indicate the detection
strength. It displays
the charging state
of the battery, and
also features a zoom
function for reliable
detection accurate to
the millimeter. The
function buttons of
the PDO Multi make it easy to switch the mode from metal
to wood detection. The non-slip soft grip ensures safe and
comfortable handling.

CONCRETE
When the PDO Multi finds detectable material behind the wall,
the LED ring changes colour from green to red and alerts the
user with an acoustic signal. The result is displayed graphically
on a large LCD. The zoom function refines the search even
more and locates the detected object within a millimeter
range. Use the handy built-in pencil and mark the detected
area through the opening in the center of the LED ring.
Digital measuring tools from Bosch impress with precision
and extremely easy operation whether when leveling objects,
measuring distances or detecting all different kinds of
materials and power cables.

KEY FEATURES
Impact Angle Independence: The rebound value is
independent of the impact direction
Optimised for Field Work: Tighter sealing against dirt
and dust intrusion for longer life. Significantly lighter and
more ergonomic than the classic Schmidt hammer. A large
number of readings can be saved and downloaded later
to a PC
Preset Statistics: Statistics methods recommended by
ISRM and ASTM are implemented into the hammer for
automatic calculation of the rebound number. The option
is also there to define a user specific statistics method
Unconfined Compressive Strength: ISRM recommends a
correlation between UCS and the rebound value based on
the formula UCS = aebR (where R is the rebound value). A
correlation in this format may be defined in the PC software
and downloaded onto the RockSchmidt
E-Modulus: ISRM recommends a correlation between
elastic modulus and the rebound value based on the
formula Et = cedR (where R is the rebound value). A
correlation in this format may be defined in the PC software
and downloaded onto the RockSchmidt
Weathering Grade: Impacting on the same location twice
can be used to correlate to weathering grade. The ISRM
recommended method has been included in the device

DESCRIPTION

Pundit Lab+

The measurement of pulse velocity can be used for the


determination of the uniformity of concrete, the presence of
cracks or voids, changes in properties with time and in the
determination of dynamic physical properties. EN 12504:4
gives guidance on testing fresh concrete, hardened concrete
and concrete in structures. It specifies a method for the
determination of the velocity of propagation of pulses of
ultrasonic longitudinal waves in concrete.
TC-3050 is an ultrasonic pulse velocity test instrument which is
used to examine the quality of concrete. It features online
data acquisition, waveform analysis and full remote control
of all transmission parameters. Along with the traditional
transit time and pulse velocity measurement, TC-3050
offers path length measurement, perpendicular crack depth
measurement and surface velocity measurement. Optimised
pulse shaping gives greater transmission range at lower
voltage levels. This, coupled with automated combination
of the transmitter voltage and the receiver gain, ensures
an optimum received signal level, guaranteeing accurate
and stable measurements. An integrated waveform display
allows manual triggering of the received waveform. Pundit
Lab+ offers other features such as the possibility to estimate
compressive strength by Sonreb Method in combination with
a rebound hammer value.
The Pundit PL-200 is a best-in-class Ultrasonic pulse velocity
(UPV) test instrument to examine the quality of concrete and
other materials such as rock, wood and ceramics. The Pundit
PL-200PE employs state-of-the-art pulse echo technology to
extend the ultrasonic application to objects where access is
restricted to a single side.

Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity Tester

TC-3034

STANDARDS
EN 12504-4; ASTM C 597

DESCRIPTION
Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity Tester is used to measure the
velocity of propagation of ultrasonic pulses through concrete.
A pulse of longitudinal vibrations is produced by an electroacoustical transducer held in contact with one surface of the
concrete under test. After traversing a known path length
in the concrete, the pulse of vibrations is converted into an
electrical signal by a second transducer and electronic timing
circuits enable the transit time of the pulse to be measured.
BS EN 12504-4:2004 gives guidance on testing fresh concrete,
hardened concrete and concrete in structures. It specifies a
method for the determination of the velocity of propagation
of pulses of ultrasonic longitudinal waves in concrete.
The measurement of pulse velocity can be used for the
determination of the uniformity of concrete, the presence of
cracks or voids, changes in properties with time and in the
determination of dynamic physical properties.
TC-3034 Ultrasonic Pulse Velocity Tester is a microprocessor
incorporated equipment which can be connected to a PC
through the RS 232 output. It can also be connected to an
oscilloscope and can perform transit time measurement
from 0.1 to 1999.9 s with a resolution of 0.1 s. The battery
operated equipment has a transmitter output of 800 V and a
battery life of 18 hours of activity.

DESCRIPTION
The setting time
determination of cement/
mortar/gypsum is one of the
most important parameters
for the quality inspection and
verification.
On the machine, 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.

TG-0411 AND TG-0412 SIEVE SHAKERS


TG-0411 and TG-0412 impart a circular motion to the material
being sieved so that it makes a slow progression over the
surface of the sieve. They are ideal for on-site and heavy
duty applications when heavy or large bulk samples are to be
analysed.
The sieve shakers are equipped with a dynamic power source
which ensures the right vibration is imparted to the sieves and
sample for fast, accurate and reproducible tests. The vertical
movement is fixed to ensure the sample spends maximum
time on the sieve surface. The unique vibratory action also
helps keep the apertures clear and free from binding.
The Sieve Shakers are fitted with a very efficient clamping
device that ensures sieves are held firmly without overtightening and allows them to be quickly removed and
replaced. The timer can be preset for any duration up to 60
minutes. The TG-0412 model has the additional frequency
adjustment facility.
Sieve Capacity: 15 pieces of 200 mm sieves + pan and cover;
10 pieces of 300 mm or 315 mm sieves + pan and cover.

device that ensures sieves are held firmly without over
tightening and allows them to be quickly removed and
replaced.
Non corrodible, non metallic springs are fitted making the
shaker maintenance free. The shaker is fitted with a timer
which can be preset for any duration up to 60 minutes.
This unit will accept 200mm to 400mm diameter sieves. Wet
sieving kits in the appropriate sizes may be used with this
shaker.
The TG-0413 sieve shaker has been specially designed to
operate with heavy samples without loss of performance. It
is equipped with a dynamic power source which ensures the
right vibration is imparted to the sieves and sample for fast,
accurate and reproducible tests. The vertical movement is
fixed to ensure the sample spends maximum time seeking
apertures rather than being suspended in mid air. The unique
vibratory action also helps keep the apertures clear and free
from binding.
The TG-0413 Sieve Shaker imparts a circular motion to the
material being sieved so that it makes a slow progression over
the surface of the sieve. It is ideal for on site and heavy duty
applications. When heavy or large bulk samples need to be
analysed its important to use a shaker that is built for the job.

DESCRIPTION
Aggregate Abrasion Machine determines the Aggregate
Abrasion Value by testing the measure of the resistance of
aggregate to surface wear by abrasion.
Two specimens are pressed against the surface of a steel disc
rotating in a horizontal plane, with a force of 0.365 Newtons
per sq. centimetre. Sand, fed by hoppers, is used as an
abrasive. After 500 disc revolutions the amount of material
abraded is measured by calculation of the weight loss of the
aggregate.
The percentage loss in mass of chippings as known as the
Aggregate Abrasion Value (AAV), and ranges from about 1 for
hard flints to over 16 for aggregates normally considered too
soft for use in road surfacing.
CRT-AAM-AGG should be ordered separately.

DESCRIPTION
Accelerated Polishing Machine is used to produce polished
stone samples of aggregates used in road surfaces, to simulate
actual road conditions.
In 1950 increased traffic flow and higher speeds, together with
concerns about road safety led to research into the relationship
between road materials and skid-resistance. Research at the
UK Transport Road Research Laboratory showed a significant
relationship between polishing of aggregates used in road
surfaces and skid resistance. Tests were devised using an
Accelerated Polishing Machine and a friction measuring device
(known as the Pendulum Skid Tester, also supplied by Cooper,
to determine (PSV) Polished Stone Value).
Fourteen specimen aggregate samples are clamped around
a rotating Road Wheel. These samples are subjected to two
timed stages of abrasive polishing under a loaded rubber tyre.
First by Corn Emery grit, and secondly by Flour Emery powder.
Accessories/consumables are not included in the price of the
main device and may be purchased separately if required.

DESCRIPTION
The Cooper-Wessex Pendulum Skid Tester CRT-PENDULUM
is high quality skid resistance testing equipment. Originally
designed in the 1940s in the US, the instrument was further
developed in the 1960s at the UK Transport Research
Laboratory for the testing of road surfaces.

The CRT-PENDULUM measures the frictional resistance


between a rubber slider mounted on the end of a pendulum
arm and the test surface. This provides highway engineers
with a routine method of checking the resistance of wet and
dry surfaces to slipping and skidding, both in the lab and on
site.
It is based on the Izod principle: a pendulum rotates about a
spindle attached to a vertical pillar. At the end of the tubular
arm a head of known mass is fitted with a rubber slider.
The pendulum is released from a horizontal position so that
it strikes the sample surface with a constant velocity. The
distance travelled by the head after striking the sample is
determined by the friction of the sample surface. A reading of
Skid Resistance is obtained.

ends can be ground
simultaneously with
the suitable cradle
and water restraint
panel. The length of
the specimen must
be longer than 70
mm.
The Planeness and the perpendicularity of the test cylinder
ends are in accordance with ASTM and EN standards. The
Planeness accuracy of grinded surface is 0.05 mm. The
deviation of O perpendicularity of the side with reference to
the end faces is 5 . The cradle which specimens are fixed on
has automatic bidirectional radial displacement ability. The
safe and ergonomic design prevents the user to exposure to
water and dust and provides easy access to the water inlet
and outlet.

DESCRIPTION

STANDARDS

The TR-0580 Digital Point Load Test Apparatus consists of a 60


kN capacity load frame with a hydraulic loading ram driven by
a hand pump. The frame is adjustable for testing of samples
up to 102 mm diameter. A ruler assembled on the frame
allows the direct measurement of the distance between the
conical platens before and after the test. The compression
load is measured by a pressure transducer connected to an
advanced digital display unit assuring the best accuracy and
resistance to the failure shocks. The apparatus is supplied
with an easily transportable wooden case.

NW Rock Cradle is an easy-to-use apparatus for measuring
the rebound index on rock cores and samples. The level
of impact energy is 0.74 Nm. The sample is positioned
horizontally and the rebound index is calculated by the
average value determined after several measurements which
are performed perpendicularly to the longitudinal axis of the
sample. Rock Classification Hammer is supplied complete
with carrying case.

DESCRIPTION

DESCRIPTION
This test method has been developed to assess the
deterioration of rocks over a period of time when subjected to
water immersion. Slake durability is a simulated weathering
test to determine abrasion resistance during wetting and
drying cycles of shale and similar soft rocks as used in
embankments and other construction-related applications.
Samples are alternately tumbled in mesh drums through a
water medium and oven-dried for two cycles. The percent loss
of mass is referred to as the slake durability index.
The TR-0800 Slake Durability Apparatus consists of a
motorised drive unit which is mounted on a baseplate and
which can rotate two or four drums at a speed of 20 rpm. The
tank assemblies are filled with water to a level 20 mm below
the drum axis. The test drums are manufactured from 2.00
mm mesh, 140 mm dia. x 100 mm long.

TR-0563 The type L Original Schmidt is the ideal option for


testing thin walled items with a thickness between 50 to 100
mm (2 and 4) or for analysing small components. It is also
suitable for examining cast stone components which are
sensitive to impact. In rock mechanics, the type L Original
Schmidt is commonly used for the classification of rock cores
and brittle rock.
TR-0563 Type L Hammer is a portable and relatively
inexpensive nstrument for measuring the surface hardness
of rock. The hammer can be used efficiently in both laboratory
and the field setting.
The mechanism of operation is simple: a hammer released by
a spring, indirectly impacts against the rock surface through
a plunger and the rebound distance of the hammer is then
read directly from the scale ranging from 10 to 70 MPa (1,450
to 10,152 psi).
The type L hammer is used on NX or larger core specimens or
block specimens having an edge length of at least 6 cm.
TC-3040 Calibration Anvil, manufactured from a special steel
alloy, is used for the calibration of test hammers.

DESCRIPTION

TR-0564

TR-0564 Rock Schmidt Test Hammer (Proceq) is the worlds


most advanced rebound hammer fully adapted specifically to
the extremely varied rock testing applications (testing on cores
and blocks). The RockSchmidt incorporates statistical methods
based on ASTM and ISRM recommendations and provides the
user with the freedom to define his own statistical process for
determining a rebound number.

DESCRIPTION
Impact Angle Independence: The rebound value is
independent of the impact direction
Optimised for Field Work: Tighter sealing against dirt and
dust intrusion for longer life. Significantly lighter and more
ergonomic than the classic Schmidt hammer. A large
number of readings can be saved and downloaded later to
a PC
Preset Statistics: Statistics methods recommended by
ISRM and ASTM are implemented into the hammer for
automatic calculation of the rebound number. The option
is also there to define a user specific statistics method
Unconfined Compressive Strength: ISRM recommends a
correlation between UCS and the rebound value based
on the formula UCS = aebR (where R is the rebound value).
A correlation in this format may be defined in the PC
software and downloaded onto the RockSchmidt
E-Modulus: ISRM recommends a correlation between
elastic modulus and the rebound value based on the
formula Et = cedR (where R is the rebound value). A
correlation in this format may be defined in the PC software
and downloaded onto the RockSchmidt
Weathering Grade: Impacting on the same location twice
can be used to correlate to weathering grade. The ISRM
recommended method has been included in the device

TRL Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP)

STANDARDS
BS 1377:9

DESCRIPTION

The TS Series of Pocket Dial Penetrometers are ideal


instruments to determine the penetration resistance of
cohesive soil, especially when various range measurements
are required.

The TS-0095 TRL Dynamic Cone Penetrometer is used for the


rapid, in-situ measurement of structural properties of existing
road pavement constructed with unbound materials.

TS-0075 Pocket Dial Penetrometer with respect to range and


plunger diameters is avaliable for specific applications. All Dial
Penetrometer models have 60 mm dial diameter and designed
with Peak Hold Feature. TS-0075 Pocket Dial Penetrometer is
used for evaluating the angle of internal friction j of sandy
soils and the cohesion c 2 in clay soils. Dual scale: 0-6 kgf/cm
for 6.35 mm diameter 2 plunger and 0-11 kgf/cm.

The design of the DCP is similar to that described by Kleyn,


Maree and Savage (1982); it incorporates an 8 kg weight
dropping through a height of 575 mm and 60 cone having
a diameter of 20 mm. with the standard DCP measurements
can be made down to a depth of approximately 850 mm or
when extension shafts are used to a recommended maximum
depth of 2 m.

The TS-0078 Pocket Penetrometer is a portable and easy-to


use equipment to perform
field
classification
of
cohesive soils in terms
of
consistency,
shear
strength and approximate
unconfined compressive
strength.

Readings are usually taken after a set number of blows,


changing the number according to the strength of the layer
being penetrated. A typical test takes only a few minutes,
therefore the instrument provides a very efficient method of
obtaining information that would normally require the digging
of test pits.
The penetration hammer assembly consists of 8 kg hammer,
hammer shaft, anvil with plastic plate coupling for ruler and
handle.

screws, a digital penetration measurement gauge 0.01 mm
precision and an automatic penetration timer unit.

TS-0171

The TS-0180 is equipped with a digital, 99 second timer, which


can be set to the standard 5 second free-fall time or to some
other setting for customized tests. When engaged the timer
will allow the needle to free fall into the sample for the specific
time interval and then lock the needle from advancing while
providing a direct reading of the test results.
320 g weight should be added to the 30 angle cone to get a
total weight of 400 g for the shear strength test.

DATA ACQUISITION AND SOFTWARE


The Direct and Residual shear software is developed
according to ASTM D3080, BS 1377:7 and AASHTO T 236
standards to use with TS-2060 Machine. Direct residual and
shear software consist of two sections. First section is used
for the consolidation of the sample prior to shear.
The software is capable of making three different types of
test. The first type of the test is to move the machine till a
load failure happens. On the second type of test the user
can set a horizontal displacement and the test will continue
until the machine reaches set value. On the last type of test,
the machine can be configured as going to a set horizontal
displacement value and return to home position. And also the
number of cycles, forward/reverse speeds and displacement
for the measurement of residual shear may also be
programmed. The software supports 5 different normal
load values in order to calculate cohesion values. Prior to the
test normal load value must be entered to the software. The
normal stress value would be calculated in respect to normal
load and sample size automatically. The software supports
both square type and round type samples. For both samples
the area might be calculated by directly or by using the net
area caused by horizontal displacement. The net area method
is especially important for critical samples on academic
literature. When the test is completed max and resilient
stress values are recorded.
The normal load versus max stress pair is used for calculating
the cohesion value and angle. At least 3 loading with different
normal loads are required for this property. One can set test
speed, axis values etc through the setup of the software. The
results can be submitted as a report or can be exported to
Microsoft ExcelTM for advanced re-analyse procedures.

DESCRIPTION
The test covers the determination of consolidated drained
shear strength of a soil material in direct shear. The machines
are ideal for determining shear resistance of soil-geosynthetic
/ geomembrans by direct shear.
TS-2160 and TS-2165 Automatic Direct / Residual Shear Test
Machines are motorised and floor mounted. The total vertical
load on the specimen can reach up to 100 kN.
TS-2160 accepts up to 300 mm square shear box assembly.
TS-2065 accepts from 450 mm to 650 mm square shear box
assemblies. All shear box assemblies are designed to contain
water that surrounds the specimen. The Assemblies consist of
a shear box with a rigid wall square or round hole complete
with a vertical loading pad two retaining plates ( one is smooth,
the other is peforated. The shear machines are driven by high
resolution servo-motor and gear box assembly. Speed range is
fully stepless variable over the range 0.00001 to 9.99999 mm/
min for both direction (forward and reverse). After test the
reverse speed is 10 mm/min.). 100 kN load cell is used for load
measurement. 200 x 0.01 mm sensitivity linear potentiometric
transducers are used for vertical and horizontal displacement
measurements. Horizontal Displacement limits are controlled
by limit switches.

DISPLAY UNIT AND CONTROLLER


The 240 x 320 TFT Graphic Display is used for monitoring
horizontal and vertical load and displacement values. All test
parameters such as speed, failure condition etc. can be
defined through this interface. The test can be started up and
stopped by touch buttons.
The controller has two indepent control axes, one for
horizontal motion one for vertical motion. The displacement
on horizontal motion is measured through external
displacement sensor fitted to frame and also through the
encoder behind the servo motor. All calibration of sensors can
be done easily by entering new points respect to the error.
The software is capable of monitoring all measured values and
drawing Shear stress vs Horizontal displacement. After three
runs with different normal loads, the software calculates the
cohesion value c and shear resistance angle by using the
best straight line fit.

Triaxial Test Systems, 220-240 V 50-60 Hz


STANDARDS
ASTM D2850; ASTM D4767; ASTM D7181; AASHTO T-297;
BS 1377-7; BS 1377-8

DESCRIPTION
Determining the mechanical properties of soils is a very
important step to design foundations, embankments and
other soil structures. Building constructions, excavations,
tunnelling and similar applications have several effects on
the subsoil structures and these effects are successfully
simulated with Triaxial Tests where the stress-strain relation of
undisturbed soil specimen are investigated by subjecting the
soil sample to different stress levels and drainage conditions.
The Triaxial Test System provides automated triaxial
compression tests on cylindrical undisturbed and remolded
soil samples. Unconsolidated undrained (UU), consolidated
drained (CD) and consolidated undrained (CU) compression
tests can be automatically run, controlled and reported using
this apparatus.

UNCONSOLIDATED UNDRAINED
(UU) TEST
For the UU test , the specimens (assumed to be saturated
prior to test) are subjected to a confining fluid pressure in
a triaxial chamber. Once the specimen is inside the triaxial
cell, the cell pressure is increased to a predetermined value
by rotating the knob, and the specimen is brought to failure
by increasing the vertical stress by applying a constant rate
of axial strain. Saturation and consolidation are not permitted
to keep the original structure and water content of sample
untouched. Pore pressures are not measured during this test
and therefore the results can only be interpreted in terms of
total stress.
These tests are generally
carried out on three
specimens of the same
sample subjected to
different
confining
stresses.
Since all specimens are
supposedly
saturated
the shear strength are
similar for all tests.
The results of the test
are plotted as curves
of
principal
stress
difference
against
strain. For conditions
of maximum principal
stress difference (taken
as failure) Mohr circles are plotted in terms of total stress. The
average undrained shear strength should be noted, and the
failure envelope drawn tangential to the Mohr circles in order
to find the undrained cohesion intercept and undrained
angle of shearing resistance.

UU Only Triaxial Test Configuration

CONSOLIDATED UNDRAINED (CU)


TEST AND CONSOLIDATED DRAINED
(CD) TEST
Peak effective strength parameters (c and ) may be
determined either from the results of consolidated
undrained (CU) triaxial compression tests with pore pressure
measurement, or from consolidated drained (CD) triaxial
compression tests. The consolidated undrained/ drained
triaxial compression tests are normally performed in several
stages, involving the successive saturation, consolidation and
shearing of each of three specimens.
Saturation is carried out in order to ensure that the pore
fluid in the specimen does not contain free air. Saturation is
normally carried out by leaving the specimens to swell against
an elevated back pressure. Back pressure (which is simply an
imposed pore pressure) is applied through a volume change
gauge to the top of the specimen, while a cell pressure of
slightly higher value is also applied. Both cell pressure and
back pressure are normally increased in increments, allowing
time for equalisation at each stage. The degree of saturation
can be expressed in terms of Skemptons pore pressure
parameter (Skempton, 1954):

where u is equal to change in pore pressure for an applied


cell pressure change of 3. For an ideally saturated soil
B is equal to unity. It is recommended by several standard
test methods that a value of B greater than, or equal to, 0.95
must be achieved before the specimen may be considered
as fully saturated and the consolidation stage started. The
consolidation stage of an effective stress triaxial test is carried
out for two reasons.
First, three specimens are tested and consolidated at three
different effective pressures, in order to give specimens of
different strengths which will produce widely spaced effective
stress Mohr circles.

SOIL

Secondly, the results of consolidation are used to determine


the minimum time to failure in the shear stage. The effective
consolidation pressures (i.e. cell pressure minus back
pressure) will normally be increased by a factor of two between
each specimen, with the middle pressure approximating
to the vertical effective stress in the ground. When the
consolidation cell pressure and back pressure are applied to
the specimen, readings of volume change are made using a
volume change device in the back pressure line. Pore pressure
is measured at the specimen base, with drainage to the back
pressure line taking place through a porous stone covering
the top of the specimen. The coefficient of consolidation of
the clay can be determined by plotting volume change as a
function of the square root of time. Theoretical considerations
indicate that the first 50% of volume loss during consolidation
should show as a straight line on this plot. This straight line is
extended down to cut the horizontal line representing 100%
consolidation, and the time intercept at this point (termed t100
by Bishop and Henkel) can be used to obtain the coefficient of
consolidation.
CONSOLIDATED UNDRAINED (CU) TEST
Once consolidation is complete, the specimen is to be
isolated from the back
pressure and the rate of
vertical movement of the
compression
machine
platen set according to
result of consolidation..
During the shear stage the
vertical stress is increased
by the loading ram, and
measurements are made
at regular intervals of
deformation, ram load
and pore pressure. These
are converted to graphs of
principal stress difference
(1- 3) and pore pressure
as a function of strain, and failure is normally taken as the -

www.cooper.co.uk

- point of maximum principal stress difference.


The effective stress Mohr circles are plotted for the failure
conditions of the three specimens which has been subjected
to different consolidation level, and the gradient and intercept
of a straight line drawn tangential to these circles defines the
effective strength parameters c and .
CONSOLIDATED DRAINED (CD) TEST
The consolidated drained triaxial compression test, with
volume change measurement during shear is carried out in
a similar sequence to the consolidated undrained test, but
during shear the back pressure remains connected to the
specimen which is loaded sufficiently slowly to avoid the
development of excess pore pressures. The shear stage of a
drained triaxial test can be expected to take between 7 and 15
times longer than that of an undrained test with pore pressure
measurement. Once shearing is complete, the results are
presented as graphs of principal stress difference and volume
change as a function of strain, and the failure Mohr circles are
plotted to give the drained failure envelope defined by the
parameters cd and
d.

CLEGG IMPACT TESTER


PRODUCT CODE
CRT-CIST-882

Clegg Impact Soil Tester, 4.5 Kg with


hand-held readout unit

CRT-CIST-883

Clegg Impact Soil Tester, 4.5 Kg with


readout unit clamped to guide tube

STANDARD
Approved by the American Society for Testing and Materials
and a Standard, under Designation No D 5874 issued in 1995,
entitled Standard Test Method for Determination of the
Impact Value (IV) of a Soil

DESCRIPTION
The Clegg Impact Soil Tester provides a means for measuring
and controlling soil strength and consolidation levels during
trench re-instatement. It is also used to confirm uniform
compaction over wide areas of ground, identifying poorly
compacted areas and ineffective rolling of materials. A special
lightweight version of the Tester is also available for checking
sports turfs whilst a heavy duty version is supplied for testing
harder materials and roadworks.
The Clegg Impact Soil Tester provides a compact and reliable
instrument for monitoring and controlling the quality of
reinstatements while the work is in progress, avoiding the need
for re-excavation should later tests reveal poor workmanship.

www.cooper.co.uk

The Clegg Impact Soil


Tester consists of a 4.5
kg compaction hammer
operating within a vertical
guide tube. When the
hammer is released from
a fixed height, it falls
through the tube and
strikes the surface under
test, decelerating at a
rate determined by the
stiffness of the material
within the region of
impact.
A precision accelerometer
mounted on the hammer
generates an electrical
charge which is fed by
a cable to a hand-held
digital readout unit. The
readout unit scans and
filters the signal and
registers the deceleration
in units of Impact Value (IV). The Impact Value is an indication
of soil strength and shows good correlation with results from
CBR tests.
Data from the Clegg Impact Soil Tester can therefore be used
in a similar manner to results from CBR tests performed in the
laboratory and in the field.
We also manufacture versions that use heavier hammers.
These instruments are supplied with a 10 Kg or a 20 Kg
Hammer mounted within a metal guide tube on a pull along
cart. Please enquire for more details.

NLT 111/87

DESCRIPTION
TS-0620 Automatic Soil Compactor is designed to compact
specimens automatically and uniformly, assuring conformity
with the above listed international standards.
The principle of the design is to allow the hammer to drop
the required height into the soil in the mould which rotates
circularly to distribute the blows uniformly over the surface
of the specimen in the mould. The drop height is adjustable
to 300 mm, 305 mm, 450 mm and 457 mm. The rammer is
circular faced and interchangeable to 50 mm or 50.8 mm
diameter. 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 number of blows per layer can be set at the beginning of
the test by the digital counter. This is important because the
number of blows per layer have to be varied as necessary to
prepare specimens having unit weights above and below the
desired value. 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. User defined blow number and inout distribution is also available.
Compactor is equipped with programmable digital counter
which allows the machine:
To select reference standard (number of blows and mould
size) by the operator at the beginning of the test
To set desired compaction cycle (number of blows and
count of the number of inner and outer drops) by the user

4 (102 mm) or 6 (152 mm) I.D. moulds, 4 (102 mm) round
hammer or 6 (152 mm) pie-shaped hammer compensate
for sample drop during compaction. The total weight of
the hammer is concentrated at the foot in order to provide
a free-fall action. Hammers can easily be replaced from the
front side of the compactor. Machine stops automatically
after preset number of blows per compaction is completed.
Compaction mould is mounted on the round base; the circular
base indexes automatically with each blow to ensure uniform
sample compaction. A pie-shaped compactor foot is used with
6 (152 mm) dia. moulds to completely cover the surface of
the sample.

Kneading Compactor

STANDARDS
AASHTO T190; ASTM D1561 - 92 (2005) E1

DESCRIPTION
The Kneading Compactor was designed as part of the Hveem
mix design method to produce specimens which were more
simulative of the compaction produced by rollers in the field. A
tamping foot of 20cm is pushed down onto mixture enclosed
in a 4 inch diameter mould. The tamping foot is then retracted
and the mould rotated through 60. This kneading action is far
more simulative of a field roller than the impact compaction
used in the Marshall mix design method.

The specimens
prepared from road
base and sub base
materials is used for
the proctor and CBR
tests. The specimens
prepared from
bituminous mixture
materials are used for
determining maximum
density as described
EN 12697-5, bulk
density as described
in EN 12697-6, void
characteristics as
described in EN 126978, reference density as
described in EN 126979 or compactability
as described in EN

DATA ACQUISITION & PC SOFTWARE


CBR Test Software is developed for EN/ASTM/AASHTO/BS CBR
Test. The software includes control of machine, acquisition of
load and displacement data, saving them and preparing
reports.The software prepares a summary result for the
user that will only need some specific loads such as at 0.625
mm, 1.25 mm, 2.5 mm and 5 mm. The software continuously
updates load, stress and displacement till the end of test.
When the test is completed, the sharpest slope of the graph is
calculated. The point that this line crosses displacement axis
is commented as an offset. The corrected stress values are
then calculated respect to this offset.The CBR value at 2.5mm
and 5.0mm are calculated by using the standard load values
at those penetrations. On the general information tab, there
is an easy usage dry density calculation. These results are
used on generating 3 point CBR graph. The software supports
metric, SI and Imperial unit system.

LIGHT WEIGHT DEFLECTOMETER
PRODUCT CODE
CRT-PRIMA100

Light Weight Deflectometer (Prima 100)

DESCRIPTION
Direct measuring of the E-modulus. PRIMA
100 is the only portable falling weight
Deflectometer with a separate load cell. This
allows measuring on all layers irrespective
of strength, as the drop height is adjustable.
The PRIMA 100 method is quicker than the
isotope measuring method and requires no
reference measurements. The equipment
has no radioactive sources requiring
safety courses and can be operated by
one operator, allowing for the analysis of
collected data and printing out of data files
on site. PRIMA 100 can be supplied with GPS
allowing storage of measuring positions and
data in GIS databases.

Detail of TS-1220

DATA COLLECTION
Data collection with the new PRIMA 100
is done via cable/portable PC or wireless
PDA/bluetooth. The latter option allows the
operator to work freely on a measuring site.
The operator controls the measuring work
on the instrument itself. After each drop all data is displayed.
Data is stored in the computer or PDA. When measuring large
amounts of points, it may be an advantage to store data in
more files.
DATA PRESENTATION/DOCUMENTATION
After the measuring campaign or any time during a campaign,
data can be seen on the display. Either each individual drop or
the entire series of measuring points is displayed. Data can be
transferred to ExcelTM or WordTM. This allows printing of data
for further interpretation or direct presentation in a report as
documentation for e.g. a client. Extension to three geophones
is possible.

DUAL STAGE PUMP
The dual stage pump is formed by two groups:
1. Low pressure gear pump
2. High pressure radial piston pump
On the dual stage pump, a high delivery, low pressure gear
pump is used for rapid approach, while a low delivery, high
pressure radial piston pump is used for test execution. The
rapid approach facility shortens the time interval from piston
start until the upper platen touches to the specimen. This
excellent feature helps to save a lot of time when a large
number of specimens are going to be tested.

MOTOR
The motor which drives the dual pump is an AC motor, 380
V, 50-60 Hz, 3 phase, 1 hp and 0.75 kW and it is controlled
by Omron J7 motor inverter. The variation in the oil flow is
executed with the variation of the rotation speed of the motor.

Freezing and Thawing Chamber;


Range -30C to +30C

STANDARDS

The temperature of Temperature Control Cabinet CRT-TCC


can be controlled to 0.2C over the range - 20C to + 60C using
a P.I.D. digital temperature controller, the CAL3200.
Forced air over the heater and cooling fins and through
the air duct in the rear wall ensures a uniform temperature
throughout the cabinet. Defrost water drains via a pipe on the
back of the cabinet to a heated tray underneath the cabinet
where the water will evaporate.
The cabinet also features an over temperature device which
will switch off the fans, heating, cooling and illuminates a
warning light if the set temperature is exceeded. The front
door is double-glazed and contains a heating element to
ensure that the glass door remains clear. When testing, good
temperature control is essential. Test data shows that a 1%
change in temperature can cause up to 10% variation in
stiffness results.

DESCRIPTION
Used for the determination
of resistance to freezing
and thawing by providing
freezing / thawing in air.
The chamber is equipped
with a user defined
program including 10
steps. Time can be adjusted
to 999 minutes for each
step of the program. The
temperature range of the
cabinet is -30C to +30C.
The temperature is
controlled by a sensor
which can be immersed
either into the sample, into
the water which the sample
is placed into or, into the
salty water solution placed
on the sample before
starting the test.
The calibration of the
sensor is carried out using
the user-friendly menu.
The cabinet provides heating from -20C to +20C in 60
minutes. The distribution of temperature in the cabinet is
performed using the integral fan. Software for data transfer
to a computer is supplied complete with the cabinet, and data
can be monitored during the tests. Data can be converted to
an ExcelTM report or to a graph. The condenser of the cabinet is
fitted with an air cooled hermetic cooler. The gas used for the
cooler does not include CFCs.

Air Conditioning Units Heavy Duty

DESCRIPTION
Air Conditioning Units (ACUs) - are specifically designed for
re-circulating conditioned air through a variety of custom built
product enclosures, or directly to products. ACUs are used
where a standard test chamber cannot easily be fitted around
the product. Custom designed product enclosures can also
be supplied if required. These versatile Air Conditioning Units
feature wide temperature and humidity control options,
with remote sensing at the load if required. The systems
are microprocessor controlled, with the option of our Touch
Screen Programmer to simplify the operator interface and
enable complex profiles to be programmed, data logged, and
displayed graphically.
Powerful thermal control of custom enclosures
Wide temperature range (+250 to 50C for CRT-ACU-HD
and +170 to -80C for CRT-ACU-E)
Humidity options
Microprocessor control
Touch Screen programmer option
Remote sensing
Flexible, insulated hoses

Modern Styling

Special attention has been given to achieving an evenly


distributed airflow. This ensures consistent conditions
throughout the chamber volume and therefore more
meaningful test results. Standard chambers are available with
two temperature ranges, using single stage or cascade cooling
plant, and with the choice to increase ramp rates through boost
heating and cooling options. The Touch Screen Programmer
makes it easy to set up and monitor the chamber conditions,
and is particularly useful for simplifying the programming of
complex cycles. The chambers are attractively styled to blend
in with modern production and laboratory equipment and
available sizes cover a volume range from 216 to 1500 litres.
216 to 1500 litre capacity
Wide temperature and humidity ranges
High performance even under load

The integrated pump body design ensures the reliability
and easy maintenance
Built-in oil pump cycling design forced-lubricates the pump
chamber and sliding bearing and ensures its lubrication
and seal
Anti-Suckback design prevents oil from returning back to
the system
The intake filter can prevent foreign matter from entering
into the pump chamber and the exhaust fitting separates
oil vapour from the exhaust flow
Aluminium oil housing, trestle and motor cover forms a
rigid and light design
Thermal protection of the motor makes the pump to run
steadily and ensures safety

mbar Vacuum Gauge is used to monitor the instant applied
vacuum. The vacuum gauge works well with max. 60C fluid
temperature.
The maximum operating pressure must not exceed %75
of the full scale. The over pressure limit is 40 bar PN x 1.25,
optimum operating range (P0) is between 0,1 x PN and 0,75 x
PN and the protection rate is IP41.

TGE Series Water Baths are used in various material testing
analyses. 15 , 24 and 48 lt. tank capacity models are available
and can be ordered with or without cooler units.
Some standards require conditioning temperatures from
25 to 60 C. For example Water baths are used for asphalt
(marshall, bitumen testing), cement (curing on conditioning)
applications.
Internal surfaces are polished stainless steel with a sheet
steel insulated outercase. The cooler unit is located under the
water bath. Complete with recirculating unit for temperature
uniformity.
The EN 12697-23 covering the determination of the strength
of bituminous mixtures, prescribe a water conditioning
temperature of 5C or from 5 to 25C which are obtainable
with a cooling system.
