Specific Gravity Station

SKU: UTW-1000

£1,834.00 ex VAT

The specific gravity station is suitable for on site use at mines or assay labs due to its modular design and light weight. Intended to determine the specific gravity/density of aggregates, minerals, ores or core samples by submerging the samples in water, whilst suspended from a scale.


  • N 1097-6, 12390-7
  • ASTM C127
  • AASHTO T85
  • BS 812-2

Specific gravity station enables you to determine the specific density or gravity of aggregates, including, rocks, minerals, and core samples. Often in use in a lab or on a mining and mineral exploration project site. The station comes as a complete set and provides you with the ability to weigh your samples submerged in water with a balance with below-weighing capabilities. Furthermore, such instruments can also calculate the volume of irregular shapes, such as natural stone and similar materials. Particularly for sedimentology purposes, geotechnical engineering, or academia.


The lower part of the frame incorporates a moving platform, which carries the water tank allowing the test specimens you wish to weigh, in both air and water. Additionally, it comes with a digital balance that can weigh up to 30 kg with 0.1 g readability. This is in addition to a cradle, for core samples and a steel mesh basket for rough samples of aggregate such as broken concrete or rock and mineral ores. Fairly compact, and easy to clean, the frame is high-quality steel with blue powder coating, measuring 400 x 560 x 1000 mm (L x W x H). Weighing 26 kg when completely put together.


The sp[ecific gravity station can however be outfitted to your custom requirements upon request. Such as switching out the balance/scales for different readabilities and accuracy, basket sizes, and so on. Please contact us for further details.
