UTCM-0048/E

One of the most important parameters for the quality inspection and verification of cement, mortar and gypsum is the setting time. The machine is based on the innovative CVI-TECH philosophy. On the machine, a needle (or a probe) drops freely into a cement sample at regular intervals and in fixed positions. A sensor with 0.1mm resolution measures the penetration depth. Along with hardening process development the penetration depth decreases, when it matches some thresholds pre-defined by Standards initial and final setting times are measured and recorded.

Main Features
  • Functional and ergonomic design based on the innovative CVi-TECH philosophy.
  • Advanced electronics technologies providing superior performances and total flexibility combined with simplicity in use
  • Easy-to-use double interface: local mode, with large size 4,3" touch screen colour display and remote mode with PC
  • Supplied complete with PC software for data processing VICASOFT-BASIC
  • With PC software VICASOFT-PREMIUM (optional) up to 32 independent units can be connected to a single PC via LAN port and hub. All units are remotely controlled. Adopting the multi-test network concept laboratory productivity is maximized  
  • Integrated graphic printer is available as optional accessory showing both results in numerical format and setting time plot
  • Easy setting and storage of user-defined test profiles allowing quick test start
  • Large accessibility to the test space
  • Practical in-water testing accessory (optional)
  • Automatic determination of initial and final setting time
Technical Specification
  • Conforming to EN 196-3, 13279-2, 480-2, ASTM C191, C187

  • LAN port for direct connection to PC of a single unit or connection to a LAN hub for creating a network with up to 32 independent units all controlled by a single PC. 1 LAN cable is included
  • USB port for data storage on pen-drive (included)
  • Test procedures can be customized and stored to match user-defined requirements
  • Can incorporate an integrated graphic printer showing test result and setting time plot
  • Large test space with easy accessibility
  • Automatic calculation of initial and final setting time at programmable penetration depth limits
  • Wide range of accessories including EN and ASTM/AASHTO parts, in-water testing kit, needle cleaning device, integrated printer, probes for testing consistency and gypsum
  • Minimum penetrations rate: 10 seconds
  • Penetration measurement by encoder
