Aggregates which are flaky and/or elongated will often lower the workability of a concrete mix and may also affect long term durability. In bituminous mixtures, flaky aggregates make for a harsh mix and may also crack and break up during compacting by rolling. The flakiness of aggregate is determined by measuring the thickness of individual particles. Hence we offer thickness gauge and length gauge to check flakiness and elongation index of the aggregate respectively.
|Cat No. & Name ||Description |
|AT-215: Flakiness (Thickness) Gauge ||Used for Determination of flakiness index of coarse aggregates. It consists of a steel frame with a sliding panel having slots of different dimensions. |
|AT-216: Elongation (Length) Gauge ||Used for Determination of elongation index of aggregates. It consists of a steel frame having slots of different dimensions. The frame is fixed on a hard wooden base.|
