Dimension stone used in the construction industry requires durability testing.
ASTM C Test for Compressive Strength of Dimension Stone | CTLGroup
Asgm software is able to perform all of the data analysis required by ASTM C after the test is complete and displays the results on the screen for the operator to evaluate. The less prep work we do will result in less fees for the testing.
Contact Us View Accessories Catalog. Inspection Validating the specifications, value and safety of your raw materials, products and assets. Dimension stone Test Procedure: Whether your business is local or global, we can ensure your products meet quality, health, environmental, safety, and social accountability standards for virtually any market around the world.
Additionally, the machine includes a table which facilitates centering of the lower plane compression plate fixture. Global Reach Intertek is the industry leader with over 42, people in 1, locations in over countries.
One good way to determine when surfaces are acceptably plane is by holding a straightedge on the surface and viewing it before a strong light. Weights are recorded at the 46th, 47th, and 48thhours to ensure that the weight is the same.
There should be very little to no light passing between the surface and the straightedge. Assurance Enabling you to identify and mitigate the intrinsic risk in your operations, supply chains and business processes. This machine includes an adjustable crosshead with mounting features to accept and center the upper spherically seated compression plate fixture.
Assurance Testing Inspection Certification. Auditing Consulting Sourcing Training.
Bluehill LE for Basic Testing. The standard requires at least five 2-in cubes which can be tested in a dry or wet condition and parallel or perpendicular to the rift direction. This test is performed with the loading direction parallel to the rift as well as perpendicular to the rift. Description Literature Contact Us Dimension stone used in the construction industry requires durability testing.
Enabling you to identify and mitigate the intrinsic risk in your operations, supply chains and business processes. This test results in the compressive strength perpendicular to the rift and parallel to the rift.

Additionally, specimens are also tested in a wet condition with a 48 hours water immersion prior to testing.
ASTM C170/C170M – 17
Specimens are then removed from the oven and allowed to cool to room temperature is a desiccator before testing. WaveMatrix 2 for Dynamic Testing. Concrete, Asphalt and Rock.

The various orientations of testing only apply if the rift can be determined. In asym, if testing is performed either perpendicular or parallel to the rift, please indicate the rift direction on the samples because it is often very difficult to identify the rift direction on small samples.
