• Microprocessor control
• Large on-board LED screen display
• Direct entry via a touch sensitive keyboard
• Rapid approach and return to datum of platen
• Fully variable speed, 0.00001 to 9.99999 mm/min
• Samples up to 100 mm diameter
This 50 kN capacity machine, designed primarily for triaxial testing of soil specimens up to 100 mm diameter x 200 mm long, comprises a rigid twin column construction with an integral fully variable microprocessor controlled drive unit and LCD display with a touch sensitive keyboard. The machine is normally bench mounted for ease of installation and operation.
The use of a microprocessor controlled drive system and keyboard entry provides the Digital Tritest 50 with a wide variety of features which include pause and speed reset during test, RS 232C, operator programming of speed and control functions, self test diagnostics and many other features.
A robustly constructed steel case houses the motor drive system with careful attention being given to the prevention of ingress of water or grit. All operating controls are mounted on the front panel of the machine, which is angled and recessed to prevent physical and environmental damage.
Compact bench mounting load frame designed for performing laboratory CBR, unconfined compression, Quick Undrained Triaxial and Marshall Stability Tests. Has a variable speed of 0.5 to 50.8mm per minute and features rapid approach of platen.
