Liquid Limit Device With Counter


Cas a grande method in mechanical form is known as liquid limit method and has been in use for soil mechanics for a number of decades. The liquid limit data of soils is useful to correlate mechanical properties of soil, such as compressibility and lower shear strength. Liquid limit is the water content at which soil passes from zero strength to an infinite strength, hence the true value of liquid limit cannot be determined. For determination purpose liquid limit is that water content at which apart of soil, cut bya groove of standard dimensions, will flow together for a distance of 1.25 cm under an impact of 25 blows in a standard liquid limit apparatus. The soil at the water content has some strength which is about 0.17N/cm. sq. (17gms/ . At this water content soil just passes from liquid state to plastic state. It consists on a brass cup held on an adjustable bracket. The cup can be adjusted for a fall of 1 cm and can be raised an dropped on a

rubber base of standard hardness by cam action. Complete with one Casagrande grooving tool, one ASTM grooving tool and a height gauge block. A counter to register the number of blows

Dead Weight Type Oil And Water Constant Pressure System

This device is used to maintain cell pressure constant for along duration and the system can be used in place of conventional constant pressure system using mercury pots where certain minimum heights are required. Problems like de-airation of pump, leakage of mercury etc. is eliminated in this system . This unit is smaller in volume and can be used in mobile laboratory also. This can maintain pressure in the cell up to 20kg/cm sq. Pressure is maintained constant in the system by a balancing calibrated weights on a spindle against a column o foil, operating under constant feedback.


The system consists of an oil pump continuously driven by an electric motor during the test period. The internal components are housed in a strong compact housing. The piston on which weights are kept rotates with minimum friction. A transparent oil water vessel is provided to transmit pressure to the cell. A hand pump provided facilitates priming and to maintain constant pressure during power failure
