General Lab Testing

icon youtube

Civil engineering laboratory testing equipment is essential for conducting accurate and reliable tests on construction materials and ensuring that they meet the required standards. This equipment is used to analyze the properties and characteristics of various construction materials to maintain the testing equipment calibrated and obtain coherent results.

The equipment available for civil engineering laboratory testing starts with sample collection and subsequent sample preparation. Core drilling equipment, for instance, is used to obtain cylindrical samples from concrete, asphalt, and rock materials.

General laboratories equipment is useful to complete these activities safely and efficiently. Drying sample equipment is necessary to measure and remove moisture from soil, concrete, and asphalt samples. General laboratory apparatus includes various devices and apparatus such as sieves, glassware, vacuums, trays, etc., necessary for almost all soil, aggregates, cement, concrete, and asphalt testing.


Measuring instruments are also essential, such as load cells, gauges, transducers, and dataloggers, which are used to measure force, load, pressure, displacements, and deformation while ensuring the test's accuracy and registering behaviors and variations at all times. Another measuring equipment to consider includes thermometers, hygrometers, timers, and meteorological equipment, which are essential for monitoring temperature, humidity, and environmental conditions. These factors influence the nature of the test.


Mobile labs are an efficient solution as they provide all the necessary testing equipment and can be easily transported to construction sites for on-site testing.

In summary, civil engineering laboratory testing equipment is vital in ensuring the quality and safety of construction materials used in infrastructure projects. The subfamilies of this equipment provide a comprehensive range of tools essential for conducting accurate and reliable tests on construction materials.
