For use in measuring particle size distribution in soil suspensions
- Approximate overall height is 18 inches
- Scale is durable white ceramic enamel
- Used in measuring particle size distribution in soil suspensions by means of a hydrometer (ASTM D 422 and AASHTO T88)
While the 1,205 mL size is not specified in this method, it is useful in certain special cases. Both sizes have a round base, approximately 107 mm in diameter, to fit into the metal baths generally used for this work. The 1,000 mL may also be used in pipet methods of mechanical analysis of soils.
