Laboratory equipment for triaxial testing of soils
Model: TriSCAN Advanced 10kN
Producer: VJTech, Wokingham, Berkshire, United Kingdom.
The equipment is intended for triaxial testing of soils by compression in labs.
It is the metallic frame with built-in devices for measuring pressure, transducers to provide the pressure on a load cell containing soil samples. The results of measurements are collected in the data logger. The complex includes also the automated pressure controllers, compressor, testing accessories. The logger enables measuring with simultaneous real-time data accumulation (up to 12000 readings).
Maximal loading for compressed samples is 10 kN.
