Apparatus for determining setting times

Controls has a long tradition in the manufacture of automatic setting time testers for cements and mortars. The new Vicamatic-2 features intuitive software for user-friendly application, functional design and modular expandability.

The system is suitable both for standard tests and research purposes and allows easy setting and storage of individual test profiles, from automatic determination of the onset and end of setting to the probe penetration rate.
