Hoek cells are used to measure the strength of cylindrical rock specimens when subjected to triaxial compression.The basic Hoek cell consists of a steel cell body complete with two screwed end caps.Two self-sealing couplings are part of the body, one for connection to the hydraulic pressure system, the other for de-airing the cell chamber and optional pressure measurement.
The cell body is supplied with two hardened and ground spherical seats and pistons and one specimen jacket. These cells can withstand pressures of up to 70 MPa and can be used with a compression testing machine of 2000kN or 3000kN capacity.
