Automatic Soil Compactor

The effort required to prepare specimens for compaction studies can be costly and time consuming. The Tinius Olsen Compactor automatically compacts soil specimens, eliminating the effort of hand compaction.
The height and weight of the hammer is adjustable to suit test requirements. An automatic blow pattern ensures optimum compaction for each layer of soil. The hammer itself travels across the mold and the table rotates the mold in equal steps on an extremely stable base. The number of blows per layer can be set at the beginning of the test by means of the simple digital counter system.
Applicable Standards: BS1377, EN 1997-2, 1924; ASTM D558, D560, D698, D1557; AASHTO T99, T134, T135, T136, T180.
