General description
General description
The automatic compactor provides a fully automatic and uniform compaction of specified effort, thus ensuring repeatable test results and eliminating any operator fatigue during the tests. Conforming to all the above and other major International Standards, designed for moulds 100 to 102 and 150 to 152.4 mm diameter, this programmable microprocessor-controlled soil compactor is particularly suitable for research purposes as it is possible to program a user-defined compaction sequence and a sequence conforming to standards. A sophisticated compaction technique permits the central blow required  for the 150-152.4 mm diameter moulds. The end of each layer compaction is indicated by a visual and acoustic signal. 

Two doors, one blind frontal and one transparent lateral, ensure comfortable access to a wide test area ad gives free view during test running.
The machine is supplied  complete with all relevant accessories as: 2 rammer faces and two rammer weights that are easily interchangeable according to the reference standard. Consult the table in "Technical specification" area for further informations about rammer applications, where all fulfilled International  Standards requirements are summerized.

The wide control display and panel are connected with a shock absorber system and can be tilted according to user comfort.
The software gives the possibility to program customized sequences allowing the user to set very precisely the rotation angle from 5° to 90° with 5° steps between two subsequent blows, granting a precise and uniform blows distribution. 
The rotating base has screw clamping system for the moulds locking.

The automatic compactor can be supplied with noise reduction cabinet (see accessories).

This is a CVI-Tech product: best value drives the innovation.
