• Loading Pressures on 2.5” (63 mm) diameter samples of up to 48 tons per sq. ft. (5,148 kPa) using 11:1 beam ratio.
• Triple beam ratios of 9:1, 10:1 and 11:1 minimize loading weight requirements.
• Rigid frame construction ensures accuracy, repeatability and reliability of test results.
• Integral beam support jack eliminates possible shock to sample during load application procedures.
• Compact, table top design for maximum space savings in the laboratory.
• Cast aluminum and plated steel construction for rust resistance and long life.

Consolidation tests are performed in the laboratory to determine the settlement characteristics of soil over a period of time. The data obtained from tests on a small sample in the laboratory can be used to predict the settlement of a foundation under a building, dam, bridge, or similar structure.

The Table Top Consolidation Apparatus is a compact machine designed to provide reliable, accurate and reproducible results. The apparatus features a rigid loading mechanism, capable of applying loads for long durations. Load pressures of up to 48 tons per sq. ft. (5,148 kPa) can be generated on 2.5” (63 mm) diameter samples.

Required for test: consolidometer, dial indicator and loading weights; shown but not included, order separately. Optional floor mounting stand shown but not included, order separately.

Consolidation Frame One Dimensional Consolidation Incremental Loading Device.

• High capacity – 8800 kPa on 50 mm diameter specimens using 11:1 beam ratio
• Triple beam ratio, 9:1, 10:1, 11:1
• Compact unit ensures maximum space saving

The ELE Oedometer is rigidly constructed to ensure minimum frame distortion. The frame is designed to load the specimen through a yoke assembly and one of three alternative beam ratios. The beam is fitted with a counterbalance weight and beam support jack. The cell platform will accept the complete range of ELE consolidation cells and is fitted with a central spigot to ensure accurate centring of the cell under the loading yoke. Dimensions without hanger 711 x 203 x 508 mm (l x w x h). Weight 24 kg.

PLEASE NOTE: 25-0402 does not come with a mounting stand, cell or a transducer
