Dynamic Triaxial Testing System with BASIC 5Hz/5kN Load Frame

Dynamic (Cyclic) Triaxial Testing System (BASIC Frame)

For prices: call +44 (0)118 945 3737 or Email us
This System is capable of providing fully automatic Dynamic Triaxial testing, and consists of the following;

  • A 50 kN BASIC frame fitted with a 5 Hz/5 kN electro-mechanical actuator,
  • Single Axis Dynamic Servo Controller (DSC3000M) for actuator control
  • DSC3000M also used to log Load, Displacement and Pore Water Pressure
  • Pro Pneumatic APC to control Cell Pressure (using an Air/Water Interface Cylinder)
  • Pro Hydraulic Automatic Pressure Controller for Back Pressure control
  • 50 mm (2") Dynamic Triaxial Cell
  • Pro APCs have 7" Touchscreen for standalone input if required
  • Easy test setup, control and results viewing & output with our csDYNA software
