K-Slump Tester, K-Slump Tester
The K-Slump Tester was developed to determine the slump and workability of fresh concrete. The device can be used for in-place measurements and for measurements inside test moulds and forms. The device is used as an indicator to correlate to the standard slump test. In operation, the K-Slump Tester is made wet and inserted into the concrete for 40 seconds. The K-Slump reading is then taken on the scale to the height that the concrete has penetrated the tester. The tester is then removed from the concrete vertically and the workability reading is taken on the scale at the height of concrete retained in the tester. After the readings, the unit is easily cleaned with water.
Developed to determine the workability of fresh concrete and the degree of concrete compaction placed in formwork. The apparatus can be used for in-place measurements of concrete in test moulds and forms and may be correlated to the standard slump test. It is simple, economical to use and reduces testing time. No special calibration is required.
