Triaxial Cells are used to perform triaxial shear testing or flexible wall permeability on soil specimens 1.4 to 3in (35.6 to 76.2mm) diameter. Test cells have a clear, heavy acrylic chamber wall with a pressure rating to 150psi (10.3bar). A low-friction, precision ground 1in (25.4mm) polished stainless steel loading piston is mounted through an internally lubed u-cup to seal in pressurized fluid. Test cell chambers features high quality zero-volume change ball valves and fittings, in addition to heavy machined aluminum base and top are anodized to resist corrosion. Chambers include a piston lock and dial indicator bracket.
3500 Triaxial Cell features brass ball valves and fittings.
3500SS Triaxial Cell features stainless steel ball valves and fittings for resistance to corrosion and enhanced durability.
Required components are needed to outfit the Triaxial Cell for proper operation include a Top Cap, Bottom Pedestal, two Porous Stones, four Sealing O-Rings, and two 0.012in Latex Membranes. These components are available individually or can be purchased as a Test Cell Kit. The pedestal has flow through lines and is keyed to prevent turning during installation.
