Capability Expansion – Aggregates Testing

Trilab is pleased to announce the expansion of the company’s testing capabilities to include Aggregates testing that is compliant with Australian Standard (AS) 1141 Methods for Sampling and Testing Aggregates, and Queensland Department of Transport and Main Roads (TMR) test methods.

The company has installed a range of specialised Aggregates testing equipment including Los Angeles, Degradation Factor, Aggregate Crushing Value and Wet / Dry Variation machines.  Accordingly Trilab is now capable of offering a very comprehensive range of Aggregates testing.

The scope of the company’s accreditation with the National Association of Testing Authorities Australia (or NATA) has been expanded to include all of the Aggregates tests that are listed in the attachment to this announcement.  In addition, the company:

►        Is a registered Construction Materials Testing supplier of TMR (Registration Number: SRS051) meaning any TMR infrastructure project testing performed by Trilab for any client will be accepted by TMR.

►        Holds Australian Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry permits to import, store and destroy quarantine material which authorises Trilab to import samples from all countries.

The company’s Aggregates testing will be fully supported by experienced technical staff, several of which have extensive quarry testing backgrounds.  Staff levels and experience, coupled with quality systems will result in timely and accurate test results.

Trilab have also expanded its NATA accredited soil tests via the acquisition of a Minimum / Maximum Vibration table and a 0.0001g readability balance.  The equipment will allow the determination of the minimum / maximum dry density of a cohesionless material, and Apparent Particle Density testing to TMR Test Method Q109 (i.e. required to determine the degree of saturation of pavement material on TMR infrastructure projects). 

The addition of the Aggregates component will complement Trilab’s core strengths of Triaxial, Consolidation, Permeability and Rock testing, enabling the company to supply a more comprehensive range of geomechanical testing.
