Large Speedy 2000
Speedy Moisture Tester for roads, aggregates, sand and concrete.
The Speedy 2000 series of moisture testers combines time proven dependability
of the pressure test procedure with the convenience of an electric balance.
Moisture measurements are obtained by following a simple test procedure:
- Prepare and weigh the material sample using the electronic balance.
- Place the sample in the Speedy vessel.
- Add the reagent to the recess in the Speedy cap and seal the vessel.
- Shake the Speedy to mix the reagent with the sample.
- Read the moisture content directly from the integral gauge.
Roads and Highways
Knowledge of the moisture content of soil is crucial throughout geotechnical
engineering practice. Engineers use the Speedy for field control of compacted
earth embankments and and other structures and to measure the water content of
soil to ensure it is within specified ranges. The Speedy moisture tester is
ideal for this, being accurate, robust and simple to use.
Aggregates, Sand and Concrete
The Moisture content of freshly mixed concrete affects the workability,
blending, segregation, strength and drying rate of the finished product. The
Speedy tester is an ideal on-site quality control tool. Moisture levels of
aggregates and sand can be checked prior to use to ensure that the correct
amount of water is added when mixing with cement. The moisture content of
ready-mix cement concrete can also be checked, to ensure it is in specification.
