    Vicat Apparatus

    premium cement vicat apparatus

    This device is carried by the Birla.A1 Premium Cement Concrete Engineer for determining the normal consistency and setting time of cement. Initial setting time determines the workability time and final setting time determines the time to start curing.

    Initial Setting Time
    Final Setting Time
    BIS Standard
    30 minutes minimum
    600 minutes maximum
    Birla.A1 Premium Cement
    140-160 Minutes
    190-210 Minutes
    How does it benefit you?
    Mortar (Cement + Sand + Water) once made can be used for 2-2.5 hours, hence reducing wastage.
    Optimum setting time for timely completion of work.
  • Sand

    Silt Content Test using Measuring Glass Cylinder

    Silt Content Measuring Glass Cylinder

    Test to detect presence of impurities, dust and silt content in the fine aggregate ( river sand / manufactured sand). The maximum quantity of silt in sand should not exceed 8%. Fine aggregate containing more than 8% of silt should be washed so as to bring the silt content within allowable limits.

  • Aggregate

    Thickness Gauge – Flakiness of Aggregate

    Thickness Gauge For Identifying Flakiness Of Aggregate

    This test is used to determine if aggregate particles are to be considered flaky. Right aggregate gives high quality concrete. Aggregate influences the properties of both fresh and hardened concrete and impacts the character and performance of the concrete mix.

    Length Gauge – Elongation index of aggregates

    Length Gauge For Identifying Elongation Index Of Aggregates&

    This test determines the elongation index of aggregates. Aggregate particles are considered elongated when their length is more than 1.8 of their nominal size. Right aggregate gives high quality concrete.

    Sieve Analysis of Coarse Aggregate

    Sieve Analysis Of Coarse Aggregate

    This method includes sampling and determination of the gradation of coarse aggregate (Gravel). Well graded aggregate increases the workability of the concrete and avoids honeycombing.

    Sieve Analysis of fine aggregate for particle size distribution

    Sieve Analysis Of Fine Aggregate For Particle Size Distribution

    This method covers the sampling and determination of the particle size distribution of fine aggregates. Optimum particle size distribution increases the workability of the concrete & can avoid honeycombing.

    How does it benefit you?
    Better initial strength resulting in faster deshuttering

    Slump Cone with Testing Rod & Base Plate

    Slump Cone For Testing Consistency Of Fresh Concrete

    The test is carried out using a mould known as a slump cone. At sites it is performed by the Birla.A1 Premium Cement technical team to check the consistency of freshly made concrete. The slumped concrete takes various shapes, and according to the profile of slumped concrete, the slump is termed as true slump, shear slump or collapse slump. Only the true slump indicates concrete can be used whereas a shear or collapse slump should be corrected and the test should be repeated.

  • Post-Construction Testing

    Rebound Hammer

    Rebound Hammer For Testing Elasticity & Strength Of Concrete

    The device is used to measure the elastic properties or strength of concrete or rock, mainly surface hardness and penetration resistance.
