Terratest Light Weight Deflectometer for testing quality compaction control :
Light Weight Deflectometer TERRATEST 9000 LWD is a portable non-nuclear gauge for non-destructive test (NDT) of load bearing capacity (E-modulus). The device is using a geophone and a high precision load cell to check the compaction quality of unbound layers and partially bound material of soil.
BENEFITS OF LIGHT WEIGHT DEFLECTOMETER TERRATEST 9000 LWD : - Fast and cost saving test method - Short time performance supports homogeneity testing all over construction site - Light Weight Deflectometer TERRATEST 9000 LWD operates without using nuclear material - ONE single person can check the compaction quality in less than two minutes - No counterweight required like a truck, roller or other kind of vehicle - Immediate on site test results, no time and cost wasting laboratory analysis is required - Tests can be performed in hard to reach places such as pipeline tranches - Stiffness and compaction quality control with only ONE device.
SPECIFICATIONS OF LWD - Light Weight Deflectometer TERRATEST 9000 LWD meets the following international specifications: - ASTM E2583 (American Society for Testing and Materials) - European Union CEN ICS 93.020 (European Committee for Standardization) - IAN73 (UK Standard for Highways) - UNI11531-1 (ANAS ITALIA)
APPLICATION FIELDS OF LIGHT WEIGHT DEFLECTOMETER TERRATEST 9000 LWD : - Earth moving - Road construction - Thin asphalt layers - Recycled materials bound with foamed bitumen - Quality control of soil stabilization process - Quality control of subbase layers and subgrade before building on it - Railway construction - Infrastructure construction such as cable and pipe trenches - Foundation backfills
