Automatic Triaxial Testing System (with separate data logger)


VJ Tech has developed many products for Triaxial testing and this illustrates the standard setup for Automatic Triaxial testing on a 70mm (2.75 inch) sample in a 75 mm (3 inch) Triaxial Cell with a separate data logger. The Standard Triscan is a stepper motor controlled digital 50 kN (11240 lbf) machine ideally suited to laboratory Triaxial testing. The two Automatic Pressure Controllers provide pressure and volume control and accurate measurement. The required Load, Displacement & Pressure transducers are available with measurement carried out by the MPX3000 Data Logger. The mobile purpose built support stands accomodate all the required instruments and equipment & a Pressure Panel can be attached. The Clisp Studio software can control multiple testing stations automatically & simultaneously control up to three other sample saturations & 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 : VJT9010
