Aggregates

INTRODUCTION
Mineral aggregates are used in all fields of the construction industry to produce bituminous mixtures, concrete, mortars to be used in structures, fill materials, railway ballast, etc. For this reason we have given particular attention to all testing methods. The new EN standards have grouped all tests on aggregates in five main subjects: - Tests for general properties of aggregates - Tests for geometrical properties of aggregates - Tests for mechanical and physical properties of aggregates - Tests for thermal and weathering properties of aggregates - Tests for chemical properties of aggregate. In the majority of cases the new EN Standards correspond to some existing National Standards and, apart from a few exceptions there is almost no difference in the specifications of test apparatus.

y the time this catalogue has been printed a number of new European Standards concerning aggregates will have been published and the correspondent National Standards are automatically superseded. The new EN Standards for aggregates have been grouped in five main subjects: Standards - Tests for general properties of aggregates from EN 932-1 to EN 932-6 - Tests for geometrical properties of aggregates from EN 933-1 to EN 933-10 - Tests for mechanical and physical properties of aggregates from EN 1097-1 to EN 1097-10 - Tests for thermal and weathering properties of aggregates from EN 1367-1 to EN 1367-5 - Tests for chemical properties of aggregates from EN 1744-1 to EN 1744-3 In the majority of cases the new EN Standards correspond to some existing National Standards and, apart from a few exceptions there is almost no difference in the specifications of test apparatus. In order to allow clients the choice to update, if necessary, their laboratory equipment, we list below all the new EN Standards with corresponding National Standard. Considering that in many countries outside Europe the National Standards such as BS and NF will still be adopted, we continue to supply the relative apparatus.

The drum is rotated by a speed reducer driven by an electric motor at a speed of between 31 and 33 r.p.m. The machine is equipped with an automatic counter, which can be preset to the required number of revolutions of the drum. The unit is supplied without the abrasive charge, which has to be ordered separately depending on the standard in use. Conforming to the CE directive, the machine should be housed in a soundproof and protection cabinet. Our standard model can be upgraded for this requirement by the 48-D0500/XUP Soundproof and protection cabinet, which has to be specified at time of order and factory installed. See Upgrading options.

M 48-D0543 Quantab chloride titrator, type 1175 (711175), range 0.005% to 0.1% Na Cl. Bottle of 40 strips M 48-D0543/A Quantab chloride titrator, type 1176 (711176), range 0.05% to 1% Na Cl. Bottle of 40 strips
General description and specifications A simple and quick method to determine the chloride content of fine aggregates. The silver dichromate strip will react with any chloride in the solution and the calibrated column will indicate the proportional concentration of chloride. Bottle containing 40 strips and calibration chart.

CARBONATE CONTENT OF AGGREGATES


M 48-D0570 Gasometer Dietrich-Frling
General description and specifications Used for the determination of CaCO3 especially in limestone and lime marl. It consists of a glass container in which the reaction between the calcium carbonate contained in the products and a solution of hydrochloric acid takes place. The gas given off is collected and measured with a suitable device connected with the container. Being measured the volume of gas (CO2) given off it can be related with the quantity of CaCO3 contained in the sample.
