The overarching objective of the mobile concrete testing lab at KCP is to make better and durable concrete at the site, and act as the guide in adopting better construction practices. While the concrete care team checks parameters such as the grain size distribution of (jelly), coarse aggregate or (sand) fine aggregate, the concrete care engineer checks for harmful impurities in sand – clay or silt, for example. In addition to the above, samples of concrete made at the site can be tested after 7 days or 28 days as per BIS standards. The cement care van also provided for the testing of water suitability.
The mobile concrete lab is equipped to test:
Coarse and fine aggregates
Fresh concrete workability via the slump test
Fresh and hardened concrete through concrete cube testing
