Swell Test Apparatus is designed to determine the swelling pressure developed by a soil specimen molded to desired densities at known moisture contents, when soaked in water.
The load applied to restrain the swelling is transferred to a load measuring proving ring through a perforated swell plate and a load transistor bar
The proving ring is attached to the lead screw of load frame, hand operated, designed for the purpose
The load frame has a worm gear arrangement for initial setting and for subsequent volume change compensation
A soaking tank is provided for saturating the specimen and the base of the mold has channels and radial grooves with connecting holes
