Able to survive in even the harshest laboratory environments, the HM-1100A will provide you with reliable service day-in and day-out. The design features a rugged frame design manufactured from aluminum with stainless steel vertical rods, horizontal cross arms and beam support rods. The load arm incorporates 9:1, 10:1, and 11:1 beam ratios for greater flexibility and loading weight requirements. Using the 10:1 ratio on 2.5" (63 mm) diameter samples, the system is capable of producing load up to 48 tsf (4,597 kPa).
Compact and easy-to-use, the HM-2432A.3F pneumatic consolidation load frame is used to estimate the rate and amount of settlement anticipated for a proposed structure. The unit applies loads instantly without impact for stress-controlled consolidation testing; and, maintains the load regardless of sample compression. Its small footprint saves valuable lab counter space while maintaining its versatility by supporting fixed ring, floating ring, or permeability cells. Available with standard mechanical dial gauge, digital indicators or with strain transducers (LSCT) coupled to one of our data loggers. Meets ASTM D2435, D4546; AASHTO T216; BS 1377 part 5.
