• Large capacity design minimises segregation effects
• Lightweight polycarbonate construction
• Transparent top for visual observations
The Vacuum Pyknometer is a large capacity unit used in the Rice Test for determining the maximum specific gravity of bituminous paving mixtures.
The Pyknometer has a total volume of approximately 10 litres and will conveniently accept samples of 6000 grams to minimise segregation effects. The unit is constructed of lightweight polycarbonate, with the upper half being transparent for visual observation of the effects of the vacuum.
The Vacuum Pyknometer Apparatus consists of a 6000 g pyknometer, vacuum pump with control valves/gauges, water trap and connection tubing.
