How VJ Tech automated equipment increased lab efficiency and client satisfaction for Professional Soils Laboratory (PSL, UK).
The Automatic Consolidation System (ACONS) is simple and easy to use and specifically designed to carry out Oedometer testing.
(both Triaxial and Shear) is a relatively new area of soil testing which requires considerable computing power due to the amount of data produced. Some
years ago, this required a large amount of equipment – but the improvements in computing power and VJ Tech technological and software advancement have made Dynamic testing (Cyclic) more efficient and affordable for the laboratory.
Consolidation Testing Part 1 described the initial setup for a Consolidation Test involving the System Setup and Test Creation
using an Automatic CONSolidation (ACONS) Instrument. Consolidation Testing Part 2 will deal with the Test Execution and Results.

Here at VJ Tech we are proud of our extensive range of consolidation test equipment and software. We have dedicated our time and expertise to build testing equipment that ensures every test carried out is simple, quick, reliable and capable of withstanding high pressured laboratory testing conditions.
The new equipment and software proved very successful in the first three labs to benefit. It has now been rolled out to two more east coast labs, one in Western Australia and one in New Zealand. Some of the labs have also invested in our sheer, consolidation and permeability testing equipment.
“The decision to use VJ Tech has proved to be a good one,” confirmed Graeme Duske. “Getting to grips with the equipment and software has been an enjoyable learning curve. I’m also satisfied that I have a good working relationship with Richard Pilgrim of Civilab – any difficulties or concerns are treated promptly and with respect.”
