Unsaturated Frames & Apparatus
Our Triaxial Pro Load Frames are used with double wall cells for double wall Unsaturated Triaxial testing, They are manufactured to a high specification from quality materials and have proven reliability. The TriSCAN Pro Advanced load frame has an inbuilt four channel data logger for data acquisition from transducers.
VJ Tech's Bishop & Wesley type Unsaturated Twin cells are precision made specifically for Unsaturated Triaxial Testing in soil testing laboratories and are available in various sizes to suit a range of specimen sizes. They have an inbuilt ram to provide axial load up to 10 kN and a maximum pressure of 2000 kPa. They have 5 non volume change valves and 4 ports in the base of the cell for internal transducers, and are designed with specially coated material to minimise corrosion.
Our new ACONS Pro MPC Frame uses a stepper motor to generate Force instead of compressed air. It has a small footprint and features advanced electronics with up to 6 input channels (5 x Analogue & 1 x Digital). This frame can be used for SD-SWCC testing when fitted with our Multi-Purpose Cell.
The VJ Tech Unsaturated Soil Testing Shearbox is used to carry out unsaturated shear tests on soil samples up to 75mm (square or round) in a sealed sample chamber. The pneumatic loading concept is utilised for applying the vertical load to the sample (compressed air supply required). When testing, suction is maintained using a Pneumatic APC at the top of the sample and a Hydraulic APC at the base.
