Automatic Triaxial Testing System


VJ Tech has developed a system for Automatic Triaxial testing on a sample in a Triaxial Cell. The Advanced Triscan is a stepper motor controlled digital 50 kN (11240 lbf) machine with inbuilt datalogging and is ideally suited to laboratory Automated Triaxial testing. The two Automatic Pressure Controllers provide pressure and volume control and accurate measurement. The 75mm (3 inch) Triaxial Cell is set up for a 70mm (2.75 inch) sample and the relevant sample preparation tools are available as are the required load, displacement and pore water pressure transducers. The mobile purpose built support stands accomodate all the required instruments and equipment and a Pressure Panel can be attached. The Clisp Studio software can control multiple testing stations automatically and simultaneously control up to three other sample saturations and consolidations on each if required. The software conforms to BS1377-7 & 8, ASTM D2166/D2166M-13, D2850-03A & D4767-11, AS1289.6.4.1 & 2 & GEOSPEC 3
Part Number : VJT9000
