The gyratory compactor is manufactured in a high strength, sturdy steel frame. The loads are applied by a pneumatic cylinder controlled by a high precision pressure regulator. Height is measured by a linear displacement transducer. The rotating movement is generated precisely with an eccentricity having an angle of rotation of 0.082 ºC.
The test software allows the user to choose from several test methods with different density objectives or a specific number Of rotations. The Software gives the instruction to apply the load and rotation begins. The Number of rotations, compaction depth and density are all displayed on the screen. At The end, the software retracts the load and stops the rotation. A high speed USB port connects the compactor and the computer.
The compactor is small but can be used to test all emulsion types. Speed is controlled by a computer which also controls the inverter.
