Consolidation Apparatus Description and Specifications for Lab Tenders
Loading Pressures on 63 mm (2.5") diameter samples of up to 5,148 kPa (48 tons per sq. ft.) 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 aluminium and plated steel construction for rust resistance and long life. .The apparatus features a rigid loading mechanism, capable of applying loads for long durations. Load pressures of up to 5,148 kPa (48 tons per sq. ft.) can be generated on 63 mm (2.5") diameter samples. The unit incorporates an integral beam support jack that eliminates the possibility of shock to the sample during load application procedures.
