Soil Testing Lab Equipments

Universal Triaxial Shear Test Apparatus (Motorized) 30 Speed

Model: ASI-872
Same as above but the motorised load frame capacity 5000kgf has 30 rates of strain from 0.00048 mm/min to 6.0mm/min. Suitable for operation on 230 voolts A.C.

Accessories: High sensitivity Proving Ring capacity 200/250 kgs with calibration Chart and carrying case. High sensitivity Proving Ring capacity 2500 kgs with Calibration Chart and carrying case


Pore Pressure Apparatus (10KG/CM)

Model: ASI-873  
This apparatus is used for measuring pore water pressure and pore air pressure in soils. This is as per the principal outlined in the book “Measurement of soil properties in triaxial tests” by A.W. Bishop and D.J. Henkel. This is used as an accessory for triaxial test apparatus.

Specifications: The apparatus consists of a panel for wall mounting on which are fitted -1.0 to 10

Manometer: Glass U-tube manmeter for measuring low positive pore pressures negative pore pressures and checking zero error of pressure gauge. It is provided with a mercury trap (Mercury supplied at extra cost. Null indicator made out of clear transparent Perspex with mercury trap and cursor to indicate the mercury level.)

BURETTE: 50ml Burette for measuring the volume change in the soil specimen. Pressure pump fitted with four sleeve packed valves, Operated by means of a hand wheel on the end of the piston rod which is threaded through the pump cap and gives a smooth, fine adjustment of pressure. Copper coil and water reservoir. The unit is tested against leaks upto 10kg/cm sq.


Pore Pressure Apparatus (20KG/CM)

Model: ASI-874  
Same as above, but fitted with pressure gauge 0-20 kg/cm x 0.2kg/cm2
Spares: Polythene tube 3 mm bore x 5 mm. O.D


Soil Trimmer (Hand Operated)

Model: ASI-856
For trimming various diameter specimen for triaxial and unconfined compression tests.

Specifications: The lower specimen grip is mounted on a disc which rotates freely. The soil sample is mounted on the lower specimen grip and the upper grip is firmly seated on top of the specimen. The vertical guide can be adjusted to control the depth of cut. While trimming the lower disc is rotated by hand. Supplied complete with a wire saw, trimming knife, pairs of gripper plates for 38mm dia, 50mm dia, 75mm dia & 100mm dia specimen.


Soil Trimmer (Motorized)

Model: ASI-857  
This is for trimming triaxial and unconfined test specimen of different diameters.

Specification: It consists of a base with a knife support. The platform supporting the specimen ring rotates at a slow speed of approx. 25 rpm by a fractional H.P. motor with reduction gear housed in a cabinet. The hardened steel trimming knife mounted on a support, can be adjusted horizontally as well as vertically to permit trimming of the specimen to the exact size of the ring. A guide supplied prevents over cutting. Complete with 38mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm dia. specimen rings.


Soil Lathe (Motorized) Bench Mounting

Model: ASI-858  
This instrument is used for preparing soil samples for various tests like Triaxial Test. Unconfined Compression Test etc.

Soil lathe consist of a cabinet enclosing motor and gear system which rotates a disk at 24rpm. This disc adopts gripper plate of various sizes. An up right has an adjustable holder and takes upper gripper plates of different diameters. Arrangement is provided to control height and depth of cutting tool through a lead screw which has speeds 0.8 mm/min. and 1.6 m/minn. Supplied complete with gripper plate pairs for 38mm, 50mm, 75mm and 100mm dia. specimen. Suitable for 230 volts A.C.
