This specification covers requirements for the flow table and accessory apparatus used in making flow tests for consistency or mortars in tests of hydraulic cement. The flow table shall consist of an integrally cast rigid iron frame and a circular rigid table top. Other details of the flow table, its mounting and lubrication are described in the specification. The conical mold for casting the flow specimen and the caliper for measuring the diameter of the mortar after it has been spread by the operation of the table are also discussed.
This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.
1.1 This specification covers requirements for the flow table and accessory apparatus (Note 1) used in making flow tests for consistency of mortars in tests of hydraulic cement, such as but not limited to Test Method C1437.
1.2 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard. It is permissible to use an inch-pound caliper and mold with a SI flow table or a SI caliper and mold with an inch-pound flow table. It is not permissible to mix a SI mold with an inch-pound caliper or an inch-pound mold with a SI caliper.
