Organic Impurities Test Set

Deleterious organic materials in fine aggregates can be easily detected with the Organic Impurities Test a simple widely-used test Samples are mixed in a special graduated colorless glass bottle with a 3% sodium hydroxide solution then allowed to stand for 24 hours

The HM-815 Organic Impurities ASTM-Color Reference Chart is used in estimating the presence of organic compounds in fine aggregates in accordance with ASTM and AASHTO requirements The chart has five permanent reference colors which meet the most current revisions and is housed in a sturdy protective plastic case It is available individually or as part of the Organic Impurities

1 1 This test method covers the determination of the effect on mortar strength of the organic impurities in fine aggregate whose presence is indicated using Test Method C40/C40M Comparison is made between compressive strengths of mortar made with washed and unwashed fine aggregate

Quality of Sand on Site:-Sand is one of the most important constituents of concrete The main purpose of mixing sand (fine aggregate) in concrete is to fill the voids between Coarse aggregate And the voids between fine aggregate is filled with cement Sand bulks the concrete and helps to increase the workability of concrete
