Flow Table Apparatus (EN)

The Flow Table Apparatus (EN) is used for determining the consistency, flow, workable life, and water vapor of freshly mixed concrete, mortar, or similar materials, alongside evaluating their permeability. Its purpose lies in measuring the flow or spread of such mixtures under standardized jolting or dropping actions, revealing essential characteristics like workability, cohesion, and consistency crucial for construction applications. Offering EN standard, manual & motorized. A specimen contained in a cone mould is placed on a metal surface which is then raised & dropped from a known height after releasing the specimen from the mould.

Features of Flow Table Apparatus

  • Versatile Functionality: Capable of determining the consistency, flow, workable life, and water vapor of freshly mixed concrete, mortar, or similar materials.
  • Permeability Assessment: Allows for the evaluation of the permeability of the materials being tested.
  • Standardized Testing Procedure: Conducts flow or spread measurements under standardized jolting or dropping actions, providing consistent and reliable results.
  • Reveals Essential Characteristics: Provides insights into crucial characteristics such as workability, cohesion, and consistency, essential for construction applications.
  • Compliance with EN Specifications: Adheres to EN specifications, ensuring accuracy and reliability in testing procedures.
  • Manual or Motorized Options: Available in both manual and motorized variants, offering flexibility in operation according to user preference and requirements.
  • Durable Construction: Boasts a top plate crafted from high-quality brass with a smooth plane surface finish, ensuring durability and precision in testing.
  • Comprehensive Testing Accessories: Includes a mold and tamper, facilitating comprehensive testing procedures.

Standard

  • EN 459-2 is a European standard titled "Building lime - Part 2: Test methods." This standard specifies test methods for the determination of the physical and chemical properties of building lime.
  • EN 1015-3 is a European standard titled "Methods of test for mortar for masonry - Part 3: Determination of consistence of fresh mortar (by flow table)." This standard specifies a method for determining the consistency of fresh mortar using a flow table.

Test Procedure of Flow Table Test

  1. Preparation of Sample: Prepare the concrete or mortar sample according to the specified mix design and ensure it is properly mixed and free of any lumps or air voids.

  2. Setup: Place the flow table apparatus on a stable and level surface. Ensure that the top plate is clean and free from any debris.

  3. Mold Preparation: Place the mold on the center of the flow table and secure it firmly in place.

  4. Filling the Mold: Fill the mold with the prepared concrete or mortar sample, ensuring it is evenly distributed and compacted within the mold.

  5. Initial Measurement: Measure the height of the sample in the mold from the base of the mold to the highest point of the sample surface.

  6. Release: Remove any excess material from the top of the mold and gently release the mold from the sample without disturbing its shape.

  7. Jolting or Dropping Action: Lift the flow table apparatus and allow it to drop onto the surface of the sample from a specified height or subject it to a standardized jolting action.

  8. Measurement After Action: After the jolting or dropping action, measure the height of the sample again using the same reference points as before.

  9. Calculations: Calculate the flow or spread of the sample by subtracting the final height measurement from the initial height measurement. This difference represents the flow of the material under the applied action.
