Too much water would reduce the material’s strength and not enough water would not allow the chemical reaction to complete, also resulting in strength reduction. The time elapsed between the addition of the water to the cement and the time it has attained sufficient firmness and completely lost its plasticity is considered to be the final setting time.
Vicat testing devices were designed to determine the consistency of softening points of materials that have no defined melting point, like cement. A number of different types of Vicat devices are available for specific applications, including these manual instruments that have been customized to adhere to various ASTM and AASHTO specifications.
Humboldt provides a variety of manual Vicat testing instruments for cement mortars and grout that can be used in most any application. Modified Vicat cone penetrometers are available in 100g, 35g and 50g models.
