SD-SWCC System


SD-SWCC System

For prices: call +44 (0)118 945 3737 or Email us
  • System for determining the influence of the stress state on the Soil Water Characteristic Curve (SWCC) of a soil sample. Both drying and wetting SWCCs can be determined
  • Multi-Purpose Frame with stepper motor (either 15 kN or 50 kN) to generate Force
  • Multi-Purpose Consolidation Cell with UNSAT kit for sample diameter 70 mm and height 20 mm. Also has a heater and temperature probe to prevent condensation
  • External or Internal Submersible Load Cell for Load measurement (Internal recommendeded)
  • Suction is generated using a Pro Pneumatic APC at the top of the sample and a Pro Hydraulic APC at the base, thus applying the axis-translation technique
  • The same frame and cell can also be used for CRS and Consolidation testing

SD-SWCC System

Features:

  • Air-tight cell
  • Fitted with High Air Entry Disc (1 bar default)
  • Temperature sensor
  • Heater with separate variable temperature controller for controlling condensation
  • Able to determine both drying and wetting SWCCs
  • Load balance pressure compensator
  • Pro Automatic Pressure Controllers for maintaining suction
  • Motorised ACONS Pro Multi-Purpose Consolidation Frame for Vertical Load
  • Up to 5 input channels (2 x Analogue & 1 x Digital) on ACONS Pro & 1 Analogue on each APC
  • The same Frame and Cell can also be used for consolidation and CRS testing
