GLHA-01 Hydrometer Analyst

When the hydrometer was placed in a fluid, it floats like a fishing bobber. The density of the fluid affects the buoyancy of the hydrometer. Denser fluids allow the hydrometer to more buoyant and float higher. To perform a hydrometer analysis, the soil must be mixed with water and sodium hexametaphosphate (a dispersing agent) to create a slurry or dispersed soil particles.

Includes all apparatus recommended to perform hydrometer analysis in accordance with specifications.

Specification :

  • 152 H type hydrometer
  • Sodium Hexametaphosphate
  • ASTM D7928-16 specified stirring device and dispersion cup
  • Waterbath
