The VJ Tech Unsaturated Shear System;

  • Uses compressed air to apply Vertical Load
  • Uses a stepper motor to apply Horizontal Load
  • Samples up to 75 mm (square or round) are held in a sealed chamber
  • Eliminates the need for the numerous weights used in manual systems
  • Has a large graphical display with a touchscreen sensitive keypad

Using our sophisticated Clisp Studio csSHEARsoftware;

  • Automated Test control,
  • Live views of measured and calculated parameters,
  • Data export to commercial packages
10 kN (2176 lbf) Vertical and and 5 kN (1088 lbf) Internal Submersible Load Cells  included.
