Vane Shear Apparatus
Standard IS : 2720 (Part 30)
Item Code : EKE 108
Consists of a torque head, adjustable in height by means of a lead screw rotated by a drive wheel to enable the vane to be lowered into the specimen. Rotation of the vane is by means of an electric motor which operates a worm gear arrangement turning the upper end of a calibrated torsion spring. The vane shaft is attached through the hollow upper shaft to a resettable pointer which indicates the angle of torque on a dial graduated in degrees. The dial reading multiplied by spring factor gives the torque.
Rate of rotation : 1/60 rpm operates on 220, 50 Hz, Single Phase, AC supply. Supplied complete with:
EKE 10801 Container 1 No.
EKE 10802 Set of 4 Springs, each of capacity 2 kg-cm, 4 kg-cm, 6 kg-cm and 8 kg-cm. 1 No.
Optional Extra
EKE 10803 Stand, for use at the site. 1 No.
