TERRATEST-LWD

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
