ShearSCAN Pro Motorised Table Top Shear System

VJT2585 - ShearSCAN Pro Motorised Table Top Shear System

For prices: call +44 (0)118 945 3737 or Email us

The VJ Tech ShearSCAN Pro uses stepper motors for applying Vertical and Horizontal loads to the sample, and the Advanced electronics enable the system to carry out;

  • Constant Shearing, in addition to Direct and Residual Shear,
  • Oedometer testing using the supplied adaptor (requires csOEDO).

Using our sophisticated Clisp Studio software, a Test can be set up with;

  • 3 possible Consolidation Modes,
  • 3 possible Vertical Control methods for the Shear Mode and
  • 6 possible Shear Modes for the selected Vertical Control Method
A 10 kN (2176 lbf) Vertical Load Cell is included.
