Slake Durability Testing Apparatus
The Slake Durability Testing Apparatus is used in simulated weathering tests to determine abrasion resistance in wetting and drying cycles of shale and similar soft rocks in embankments and other construction-related applications. Apparatus has been developed to assess the deterioration of rocks over a period of time when subjected to water immersion. The rock samples are dried and then submitted to wear stress inside a drum which is rotated into water. The test is performed different times and the wear is given by the loss in weight of the sample. The Slake Durability Testing Apparatus is very accurate.
