Gilson's Sand Equivalent Shakers agitate samples for the Sand Equivalent Test to determine the level of undesirable clay-like fines in granular soils and fine aggregates. They are proven to increase accuracy and repeatability while reducing operator variability when compared to hand agitation.
Units conform to several ASTM, AASHTO, and California test standards. Select from either motorized or hand-operated units. Both motorized and manually operated shakers ensure proper regulation of speed and stoke for more consistent results. The mechanical shakers can also be used to perform other test applications, such as the evaluation of the fines portion of Durability Index Test samples.
