Plastic and Shrinkage limit Set - For Soil Testing Lab
Plastic and Shrinkage limit Set - For Soil Testing Lab Model STE001
Plastic limit is the limit on maximum water content at which a reduction in water content does not cause an appreciable reduction in volume of the Soil Mass.Further reduction in water, makes the air to enter in to the voids of soil keeping the volume constant.This is called shrinkage limit.

Soil Cone Penetrometer - For Soil Testing Lab
Soil Cone Penetrometer - For Soil Testing Lab Model STE003
Soil Cone Penetrometer is used to determine the liquid limit of soils. It provides reliable and accurate results of soil with low plasticity index. The percentage of moisture contents can be determined by observing cone( half angle for 5 seconds under a total sliding weight of 100 gm )penetrates (25mm) giving the liquid limit.

Soil Trimmer - For Soil Testing Lab
Soil Trimmer - For Soil Testing Lab Model STE004
Soil Trimmer is used for trimming different diameter soil specimen for triaxial and unconfined compression tests. The lower specimen grip is mounted on a disc which rotates freely. The soil sample is mounted on the lower specimen grip and the upper grip is firmly seated on top of the specimen. The vertical guide can be adjusted to control the depth of cut.

Soil Hydrometer
Soil Hydrometer Model STE005
Soil Hydrometer is used to analyse grain size soil where more than 11% of the material passes through 75 microns sieve. Clear transparent glass having uniform clarity is used throughout the upper end on which density scale is engraved.Smallest division on the scale is 0.0005. It can be used to analyse Clay, silt, fine aggregates, and other materials where absolute density has little variation amoung sample particles.

Marsh Cone
Marsh Cone Model STE006
Marsh Cone is used to find out viscosity of bentonite slurry and similar material. Time in seconds required to flow out 1000cc of slurry from cone is measured as funnel viscosity of the material. These Marsh Cones are used in oil industry and also for construction industry.

Mud Balance
Mud Balance Model STE007
Mud Balance Designed to find out specific gravities of semi liquids like mud and other liquids having densities in the range 0.8 to 2.5. A stainless steel cup with lid and overflow vent is fitted on one side of the beam. A counter weights with cursor slides over the graduated scale. The beam has a knife-edge at centre which rests in a fulcrum fitted in the stand. Leveling screws and spirit level are fitted to the stand.

High Speed Stirrer
High Speed Stirrer Model STE008
This is used for mechanical analysis and other laboratory applications . A dispersion cup is supported on a rest on the stand of the stirrer and has a removable baffle. For operation on 230V A.C. supplied with dispersion cup or baffle cup. These high speed stirrers are demended in the market for their operational fluency, lightweight and corrosion resistance.

Grain Size Analysis
Grain Size Analysis Model STE009
Grain Size Analysis (Pipette Method) is used to determine sub sieve particle distribution in a soil sample by mechanical analysis. This analysis expresses quantity proportions by weight of the various size particles present in the soil. It is recommended as a standard procedure to use dispersion agent to avoid flocculation. It consists of a sliding panel which moves up and down by means of a screw allowing Anderson pipette to get raised or lowered vertically. A sedimentation tube is held by a laboratory clamp provided on the stand below the pipette. The depth of immersion is measured by a scale graduated in mm at the side of the sliding panel.

Liquid Limit Device
Liquid Limit Device Model STE0010
Liquid Limit Testing determines the water content at which soil changes from a liquid to a plastic state.The liquid limit data of soils is useful to compare mechanical properties of soil, such as lower shear strength and compressibility. Liquid limit is the water content at which soil passes from zero strength to an infinite strength. Liquid limit is that water content limit at which a part of soil, cut by a groove of standard dimensions flows together for a distance of 1.25cm under an impact of 25 blows in a standard liquid limit apparatus. It consists of a brass cup held on an adjustable bracket. The cup can be adjusted for a fall of 1 cm and can be raised an dropped on a rubber base of standard hardness by cam action. It is provided with one Casagrande grooving tool, one  grooving tool and a height gauge block. Now a days this motorized(120 rpm) device facilitated with counter is available.

Plummet Balance
Plummet Balance Model STE0013
Generally particle size distribution analysis is done using pipette and hydrometer methods.In hydrometer method it is possible to determine particle sizes in the range 75microns, the method involves computation and it is time consuming. The pipette method can be used to determine the percentage of specific sizes less than 0.02, 0.006 and 0.002mm as a percentage of total soil sample. The plummet balance method to determine sub sieve particle size for the entire range is very rapid and only manipulation of height of the balance, so that plummet sinks to the right depth is required. The percentage of soil in suspension is directly indicated by a pointer over a graduated scale. A vertical rod is mounted on a sturdy base having leveling screws. A pointer with steel pivots turns is jewel bearing an moves over a graduated scale.

Standard Compaction Test
Standard Compaction Test Model STE0014
The bulk density of an aggregate of matter is increased by driving out air by compaction .The density obtained depends on the moisture content for a given amount of compactive effort. At very high moisture contents, the maximum dry density is achieved when the soil is compacted to nearly saturation, where (almost) all the air is driven out.

Semi-Automatic Compactor
Semi-Automatic Compactor Model STE0015
A mechanically cum electrically operated semi-automatic compactor is a device manufactured to eliminate hand compaction process. Which also considerably saves time with the Rammers provided two stroke lengths, available, the compactor can be used for normal compaction/heavy compaction as well as C.B.R compaction. When the rammer reaches the required height the pawl release the rammer which falls freely on soil surface. The release mechanism is operated by an arm moving up and down which is connected to a reduction gear coupled to the motor through another arm.
