LE CHATELIER WATER BATH
Constructed with stainless steel inside chamber and exterior case in
painted steel sheet, it can hold up to 12 Le Chatelier moulds (to be
ordered separately) in the removable rack, supplied with the bath.
The bath reaches the boiling point in approx. 30 minutes. Now an
original device keeps the bath temperature at the boiling point,
by avoiding the water evaporation and assuring that Le Chatelier
moulds remain covered by the water during all the test execution.
The bath is equipped with security device which cuts the
power out in case of overheating of the resistance due to lack
Power supply: 230V 1ph 50-60Hz 1800W
Dimensions: 405x265x205 mm
Weight: 7 kg approx.
LE CHATELIER MOULD
Made from a brass spring tensioned split cylinder having internal
diameter of 30 by 30 mm high, with two pointers 150 mm long.
Used to determine the cement expansion (soundness) eighter in
cold and in boiling water.
Weight: 30 g
LE CHATELIER MOULD INDIVIDUALLY TESTED
Similar to mod. E066, but with pointers bigger sized, granting a
higher number of test utilisations (about 10 times more) within the
tolerances requested by EN Specifications.
The moulds are checked one by one with engraved a serial number
for an easier identification of each mould, they perfectly meet
EN 196-3 Specification.
E066-01 GLASS PLATE 50×50 mm to cover the mould. Pack of 2
E066-02 WEIGHT: 100 g to be placed over the glass plate.
E066-03 EXTENSIBILITY of mould apparatus to check the elasticity
of the split cylinder of the mould.
Complete with 300 g weight.
E066-04 TAMPING ROD 17 mm diameter.
Weight: 70 g
SOUNDNESS OF HYDRATED LIME AND GYPSUM
STANDARDS: EN 459-1 | BS 890, 1191
Utilized for the determination of the soundness of hydrated lime,
gypsum and building plasters.
Consisting of a brass ring mould, 100 mm diameter by 5 mm deep.
The mould has an inside taper of 5°.
Supplied complete with glass base plate.
To perform one test, three moulds are required.
SOUNDNESS OF BUILDING LIME DETERMINATION
STANDARD: EN 459-2
This bath is used for the determination of the soundness of building
limes subjected to steam action at atmospheric pressure for 180
The steam bath, all stainless steel made, holds up to 12 Le Chatelier
moulds, approx. 50 mm over the water level.
Two heating elements of 1200W and 200W reach the water boiling
point in 30 minutes; now a timer disconnects the 1200W element,
and the water temperature is maintained by the second element, as
requested by the Standard.
The cover has a device avoiding the condensed water to drop on
