The Consolidation Apparatus consists of a fixed ring type of consolidometer cell for testing specimens of 60mm diameter x 20mm thick, but a variety of specimen sizes from 50-100mm diameter 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.
