Triaxial Cells

Product Code

UTS-0400            Standard Triaxial cell for 38 and 50 mm dia. samples
UTS-0401            Standard Triaxial cell for 70 and 100 mm dia. samples

The cell has been designed and treated to minimize corrosion. Particular attention has been paid to the quality of finish between the piston and the head. Final assembly includes the fitting of       an O-ring seal and the use of a special lubricant to reduce friction to a minimum and eliminate water leakage. The piston load capacity is designed to accept high axial loads which may be present during the final stages of a test.

Each cell has five take-off positions drilled in the base for top drainage/back pressure, pore water pressure and bottom drainage. Three no volume change valves and anvil for displacement transducer are supplied complete with the cell. Each cell will accept a range of base adaptors and various accessories for testing a wide range of specimens.

The cell capacity is designed to tolerate confining pressures as high as 1700 kPa which is enough for simulating most in-situ conditions.

For cell accessories and sample prepatarion accessories see next page.
