Advanced Air Entrainment Meter is used to measure the air content of freshly mixed mortar in accordance with the air pressure compensation principle.
Qualitest offers a vast range of testing equipment for fresh concrete, including Shrinkage determination testing machines, Air entrainment meters with various capacities, Rheometers for mortar and paste that cover particle size range of smaller than 2mm and up to 8mm, Rheometer for fresh concrete, etc.
The Viskomat NT is a versatile rotational viscometer for determining the workability of fine grained building materials such as cement paste, mortar, fine concrete, plaster etc.
The Viskomat XL is a versatile rotational viscometer for determining the workability of building materials such as mortar, cement and fresh concrete (up to 8mm grain size).
The Shrinkage cone is designed with a double wall metal vessel for easy heating and cooling using an external liquid temperature control unit.
Shrinkage Ring test method covers the laboratory determination of the age at cracking and induced tensile stress characteristics of mortar or concrete specimens under restrained shrinkage.
The Concrete Rheometer BT2 is a compact rheometer for fresh concrete. Opposite to the spread table method the BT2 concrete rheometer tests the concrete at various loads.
Thin Layer Shrinkage System – This set-up allows to investigate the different formulation parameters and their influences onto the different stages of shrinkage and expansion, namely the plastic shrinkage, setting expansion and drying shrinkage.
The Bending Drain measures the shrinkage and bending of building materials during the setting and hardening process. The Bending Drain can also be used in simulating how the building material reacts to built in features such as real world electrical floor heating.
The Shrinkage Drain system is one of several instruments that Qualitest offers to measure the volume change during the setting and hardening of Concrete and other Building material.
Gyratory compactor is used for mix design and quality control of concrete product plants, where low workable and zero slump concrete is used.
