The 3-position Standard and 6-position Add-on panels are an air?operated pressure control panels for?permeability and triaxial testing. It consists?of a control section and three or six pressure?positions.
The Flexible-Wall Permeameters are designed for?measurement of hydraulic conductivity of?cylindrical soil specimens.?Permeameters are available for?maximum diameters of 3″, 4″, 6″,?8″, and 12″ specimens.
The Bladder Accumulators consists of a flexible bladder clamped?between two stainless steel chambers. The flexible bladder serves as a fluid separator and?prevents the permeant from entering?the control panel.?Volume capacity 200 mL and 1500 mL.
Testing with the?Permometer conforms to ASTM?D5084 and classifies as a falling head -?increasing tail test, Method C. ASTM?D5084 termination criteria are typically?achieved within 1 to 24 hrs after specimen?saturation.
The Constant Head Permeameters (CHP) are designed for?measuring hydraulic conductivity of coarse?grain soils, i.e., silts, sands, and gravels.?Standard?sizes accommodate four-inch and six-inch?specimen molds. Various sizes available on request.
The Double-Ring Permeameter (DRP) is an improved?version of the compaction permeameter,?the main difference being the DRP’s ability?to detect sidewall leakage. Standard version – 4″ other diameters available upon request
