Triaxial Permeability Control Panel

Triaxial Permeability Control Panel

The FORNEY Triaxial/Permeability Control Panel meets and exceeds the demand for accurate and easy triaxial and permeability testing. Logical set up and operation make it easy for the technician to perform functions at various test stages; for example; de-aired water preparation, sample preparation and cell assembly, cell filling, confining pressure application, sample saturation by back pressure increments, isotropic consolidation, and hydraulic gradient setup for permeability testing or open drainage for triaxial testing. The control panel features three independent channels for pressure control and a user friendly burette system with a bridging feature to set multiple burette pressures with one regulator. The burette is located inside the tank so that it has the effect of magnifying the burette scale to help read values more accurately during permeability testing. When more water is necessary during the saturation stage the burette and tank work together with just the flip of a switch; and the panel is easily expandable for multi-cell testing. Inlets are provided for electrical power, air pressure, vacuum, water and de-aired water. De-aired water is delivered to the burettes and air pressure, vacuum and water are delivered using quick connectors for fast, easy sample setup on the triaxial/perm cell. The technician can power the vacuum pump or the motorized agitator on the de-airing tank with a switch on the panel. The FORNEY Triaxial/Permeability Control Panel can be used to perform permeability tests or hydraulic conductivity tests under triaxial effective stress for standard gradients; for research and for triaxial testing in all variants of total and effective stress; quick un-drained, consolidated un-drained and consolidated drained. Maximum pressure is 100 psi, Cell water capacity is 20 cc.
