Model TO-126

Consolidation Apparatus – Digital

The Consolidation Apparatus consists of a fixed ring type of consolidometer cell for testing specimens of 60mm dia x 20mm thick, but a variety of specimen sizes from 50 to 100mm dia can also be tested. Additionally, the same loading unit can be used with optional floating ring consolidometer cells.

The standard consolidation apparatus is supplied with a weight set to achieve a total pressure of 10kg/cm2 (in addition to the seating load of 0.05kg/cm2 on the specimen), but an additional set of weights is required to reach the full capacity of 20kg/cm2.

The consolidation is measured by conventional dial gages or digital gages and common configurations include a single and three-gang consolidometers, with a six-gang version available on special request.
