General description
General description
The verification of the degree of compaction can be determinate on site by a simple procedure consisting essentially in removing and weighing a part of compacted soil and replacing in the hole with sand by a simple apparatus recording the volume of sand and then calculating the density of the removed soil.
We propose three models to be selected conforming to the size of grained soils.
The sand pouring cylinders and calibration cans are made of cast aluminium and precisely machined. The tray is made of plated sheet steel.
