Kinematic Viscometer bath
It consists of water bath made of M. steel. Having
the illuminator at rear side. The temperature is controlled by electric
relay. It is supplied with one no. of mercury type thermometer and manometer
It is available in three different options for temp. range such as ambient
to 100ºC, 5°C TO 100 °C and ambient to 150 ºC
Note: Bath can be fitted with P.I. D. controller extra cost.
Meets:- IS: 1206 part III
Following bath size is available.
- Size (L x W x H )
a) 12" x 9" x 12" (To accommodate 4 viscometers)
b) 12" x 12" x 12" (To accommodate 6 viscometers)

Universal Cone Penetrometer, Automatic
This apparatus is used for penetration on a wide
variety of material such as greases petroleum, bitumen tar wax and polish.
It consists of Timer (for setting the number of fall of needle) head support
mounted on a vertical rod, which can be adjusted for a height. Rack and
pinion assemblies provide a fine adjustment of needle tip to a sample and
incorporate slipping clutch mechanisms which make a reading of penetration
and subsequent resetting of a sample and accurate operation. The dial is
graduated from 0- 400 in one tenth millimeter sub division. It is supplied
with on e container and one set of needle.

Loss of Heating/Thin film Oven
This dual-purpose oven is designed to determine:
Its salient features are
- Loss in weight of bitumen and flux oils (loss on heating test)
- Effect of heat and air on asphaltic materials (thin film test)
- The unit is heavily insulated and has a double glass door for
viewing the test chamber thermometer and samples.
- Temperature is controlled at 1630C (10C) by means of a
variable temperature controller and thermostat.
- Two rotating platform are supplied with each oven: one accepts 9
standard penetration cups for the loss on heating test, the other
accepts two 140 mm diameter test pans for the thin film test. The
platforms are rotated at 5 to 6 rpm by an external motor.
- Chamber dimensions 350 x 350 x 350 mm.
Standard Tar Viscometer (cut back asphalt)
As per IP 71 and IS 1206 standards. It is used for
