The Economic Shear Solution

Don’t let a shear specification stop you from winning bids. Troxler Electronic Laboratories can save your company money with the Gyratory Shear Kit (GSK). The GSK turns any gyratory compactor on the market into a shear-enabled unit without the expense of purchasing a new machine. Place the 1.125” tall device in your 150mm mold, fill with mix, and run the specimen. The GSK calculates the shear moment at each rotation.

Workable and Stable Mixes

The three load cells on the GSK measure and analyze all of the forces acting on mixes. The workability of a mix and its stability under traffic loads are estimated based on the computed compaction force and traffic force indices. HMA, WMA and RAP mixtures are compatible with the GSK.
