Concrete Testing Equipment

Gilson’s extensive line of concrete testing equipment spans all phases of concrete testing for compliance, strength, and consistency. Our equipment for field and lab use conforms to ASTM, AASHTO, and other applicable standards.


Concrete Testing Equipment

We provide a large selection of lab and field testing equipment for concrete testing. Concrete field testing equipment can be used for testing fresh concrete for the non-destructive testing of hardened concrete. Gilson's concrete lab testing equipment includes various types of products for such strength tests on concrete cylinder molds or beams.

  • Fresh Concrete Testing equipment ensures that concrete is delivered as specified for high-quality pavements and structures. Our products for air content include type B and volumetric air meters, and the Chace Air Indicator. For testing the passing ability of self-consolidating concrete we have the J-ring or L-box. Other equipment includes slump testing kits for measuring workability, weight measures for unit weight of conventional concrete mixes.
  • Concrete Strength Testing equipment measures compressive or flexural strength of concrete to assure compliance with specifications. Gilson's concrete compression testing machines range in various load capacities from 250lbf to 500lbf. We offer various compression machine accessories for various strength testing tests on cylinders, beams, and cube molds. Other popular strength testing equipment includes cylinder capping pads, capping compound, melting pots, portable beam tester, and end preparation apparatus.
  • Cement Testing Equipment is in accordance with ASTM and AASHTO standards used for testing consistency, strength, set time, and shrinkage rate. Equipment is used for testing characteristics of cement, mortar, and grout testing for final mix batches of concrete and masonry products. Popular equipment includes the Vicat apparatus, Grout flow cones, Blaine air permeability, ASTM test sand, Cube Molds, and Prism Molds.
  • Concrete Curing equipment ensures maximum strength development under the optimum temperature and moisture conditions required in ASTM/AASHTO specifications. Equipment includes curing boxes, water tanks, moist room controls, and fogging fans. In addition to other various options for moisture and temperature regulation and monitoring of concrete specimens. Solutions for safe transport and handling of field specimens are also available.
  • Concrete Sample Molds include various types such as cylinder, beam, or cube molds used for compressive strength testing. Cylinder molds are constructed of plastic, cast-iron, or zinc-plated steel. They are available in popular specimen sizes ranging from 2x4in up to 6x12in. Rugged, multi-use beam molds in various designs and sizes cast flexural strength samples that comply with ASTM and AASHTO requirements.

    Concrete cube molds for compressive strength or as sample containers for set-time testing.

  • Non-Destructive Testing equipment assesses the strength, durability, and consistency of hardened concrete in pavements and structures. Such products like the concrete test hammers offer a fast estimation of the in-place strength of hardened concrete. Ground-penetrating radar (GPR) units and reinforcing bar locators detect and measure characteristics of reinforcing steel and other embedment. Other instruments determine existing or potential corrosion of reinforcing bars or monitor the crack formation and movement in the structure.
  • Core Drilling and Sawing is an accepted method of sampling hardened concrete for compressive strength testing, petrographic analysis, and chemical tests. Gilson electric or gas-powered core drills and diamond coring bits extract cylindrical samples for testing. Masonry saws use premium diamond blades to cut samples to size in wet or dry conditions.
  • Concrete Mixers prepare concrete, asphalt, cement, and grout mix design samples for laboratory testing following ASTM/AASHTO standards. A rugged benchtop, portable, stationary, and concrete batch mixers are available to meet your needs.
  • Specimen Measurement instruments determine the length, diameter, and circumference of concrete test specimens. Models include digital calipers with 6in or 12in (152 or 305mm) capacity and diameter measuring tapes in inch or metric units.
