General Description


The oedometer consists of a rigid aluminium alloy frame to avoid any distortion under load. The lever arm assembly is supported in precision self-aligning bearings and has three hanger positions: 9:1, 10:1, and 11:1 ratio.

Cells, dial gauges, transducers, weights etc. are not included and have to be ordered separately. For electronic measurement and data acquisition see Data Acquisition and Processing System.

For the permeability attachment and bench see ordering information.
Max. Loading Using 11:1 Beam Ratio: 1848 kg corresponding to 90.61 kN/m2 (92.40 kgf/cm2) on 20 cm2 specimen (Ø 50.47 mm)
• Dimensions: 500x200x750 mm (height less hanger x width x length)
