Soil Testing Equipment

Types of triaxial test: test descriptions
  • Total stress - Unconsolidated Undrained (UU) test
  • Effective stress - Consolidated Undrained (CU) test
  • Effective stress- Consolidated Drained (CD) test
  • Stress path test
  • Permeability test in a triaxial cell
  • Unsaturated soil test

Data Acquisition System
Geodatalog 8 -Multipurpose datalogger, with dedicated software GEODATALOG 8 is a multipurpose data logger which works directly connected to a PC. Data are automatically transferred to PC in real time for live monitoring of the tests. GEODATALOG 8 records and monitors in real time the measurements requested for Soil Mechanics testing, in particular, Consolidation - Shear - Triaxial

Our soil testing equipment includes compact soil test equipment that perform a complete range of static and dynamic tests. The array of soil testing equipment includes Liquid Limit Device, Soil Cone Penetrometer, Speedy Moisture Meter, Sand Pouring Cylinder, Proctor Compaction Test Apparatus and more.

The soil test equipment fulfil the requirements and specifications for soil testing as defined by various testing & certifying agencies like ASTM, etc. These Soil Test Equipment are compact, easy to operate and rugged to use systems, available at cost effective prices. Every soil testing equipment offered is precision-engineered and checked for flawless & consistent performance and accurate testing.
Cone penetrometers Cone penetrometers are used to determine the moisture content at which clay soils pass from a plastic to a liquid state (the liquid limit). The result can also be used to evaluate the undrained shear strength

Casagrande apparatus Casagrande apparatus are used, as an alternative to the cone penetrometer, to determine the moisture content at which clay soils pass from a plastic to a liquid state (the liquid limit).

Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (DCP) Designed for the rapid in-situ measurement of the structural properties of existing road pavements constructed with unbound materials

Sample Extruders Suitable for extruding soil samples at various levels of compactness from Shelby tubes and other samplers • Laboratory planetary mixers For complete and uniform mixing of the materials.

SHEARMATIC Automatic direct/residual shear machine The Shearmatic unit, along with the ACE Automatic oedometer and Autotriax 2, Automatic Triaxial test system, makes up a unique equipment for providing complete automation of a Consolidation, Shear and Triaxial Soil Mechanic laboratory.

Ring Shear Apparatus Dedicated to the determination of the residual shear strength. The residual shear strength of soils is sometimes also termed the ultimate shear strength. This is thestrength of soil when it is sheared to large displacements, for example along the failure plane of a landslide or in a fault zone.
Triaxial Testing: Triaxial load frames Investigation of stress-strain relationships in soil is usually carried out with triaxial tests where undisturbed, remoulded or compacted specimens are subjected to different stress level sand drainage conditions to simulate as closely as possible the different situations that can occur in the subsoil on site and the possible effects of construction, excavations, embankments, landslides.

Soil permeability
  • Constant and falling head permeability apparatus
  • De-airing and vacuum systems
  • Compaction mould permeameter
