Slake Durability Apparatus
For determination of resistance offered by rock to weathering and disintegration when subjected to immersion in water Facility to test upto four sets of samples. Quick couplings for assembly and removal of drums.
The apparatus consists of a motor on base board capable of driving two or more drums at a speed of 20 rpm. A suitable number of plastic water troughs, each designed to contain a test drum with quick release drive assemblies, permit 1 to 4 drums to be driven at one time. The test drums are supported on water lubricated bearings allowing 40 mm unobstructed clearance below the drum and a trough water level 20 mm below the axis of the drum. Drums are made of brass and comprise 2 mm wire mesh cylinders of 140 mm dia and 100 mm length.
The equipment consists of:
Base Board with Motor Drive assembly with two drum and tank assemblies. Suitable for working at 220 V, Single phase, AC supply.
Supply with EKE 20802 Electric timer, 0-30 min.
EKE 20801 Pair of Drums and Tank Assemblies, including coupling, to enable upto 4 test drums to be driven at a time
