Kimax® cylinder calibrated to contain. Used in measuring particle size distribution in soil suspensions by means of a hydrometer (ASTM D422 and AASHTO T88). While the 1205mL size is not specified in this method, it is useful in certain special cases. Both sizes have a round base, approximately 107mm in diameter, to fit into the metal baths in generally used for this work.
