Pro Compact Automatic Triaxial Testing System


Part Number : VJT9005-PA
For prices: call +44 (0)118 945 3737 or Email us
The VJ Tech Pro Compact Triaxial Testing System is capable of providing fully automatic total and effective Triaxial testing including Consolidated Drained (CD), Consolidated Undrained (CU), Unconsolidated Undrained (UU) and Stress Path tests for smaller sample sizes. The Pro Dual Automatic Pressure Controller is used to control and measure both Cell and Back Pressure and Volume.
The Pro TriSCAN 10 kN (2248 lbf) Load Frame can be connected via USB or Ethernet to a PC or Laptop running our renowned Clisp Studio software, which provides all the necessary test configuration, control, data acquisition and results export. The software can also control multiple testing stations automatically, with each station simultaneously controlling up to three other sample saturations and consolidations if required. Once the Test has been completed, numerous different reports can be generated for results analysis..
Both the Pro TriSCAN 10 Kn Load Frame and the Pro Dual Automatic Pressure Controller have Integrated 7" (178 mm) Touchscreen Colour Displays which can be used for data entry and control when in standalone mode. Data is stored on an internal SD memory card for output to USB Flash Drive or PC for manipulation within Excel.
