Digital and Analog Consolidation Apparatus – Model TO-126

The Analog and Digital Consolidation Apparatus comprises a fixed ring type of consolidometer cell for testing specimens of 60 mm dia x 20 mm thick, but a range of specimen sizes from 50 to 100 mm dia can also be examined. Furthermore, the same loading unit can be used with optional floating ring consolidometer cells.

The standard consolidation apparatus is provided with a weight set to accomplish a total pressure of 10 kg/ cm2 (besides the seating load of 0.05 kg/cm2 on the specimen), but an extra set of weights is necessary to reach the maximum capacity of 20 kg/cm2.

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