The 2.5in (63.5mm) Two-Part Compaction Mold Assembly simplifies the process of remolding cohesive samples for triaxial and permeability testing with its 2:1 height/diameter ratio. Molds fit securely within the base and provide a solid surface for compaction. The included collar completes the assembly, and is secured using threaded rods and wing nuts. Ordering an additional 2.5in Two-Part Compaction Mold offers increased efficiency in sample preparation for testing.
- Threaded rods and wing nuts for quick assembly
- Band clamp allows for easy mold closure

- Base Plate
Two-Part Compaction Mold Assemblies are used to compact cohesive soils as remolded specimens for triaxial shear and flex-wall permeability tests. Molds are placed on a steel base plate and soils are compacted using a compaction hammer.
