WYKEHAM FARRANCE’s electro-mechanical TRIAX - triaxial machine - has been designed specifically for triaxial applications and is ideal for commercial laboratories that need a versatile machine capable of performing a wide range of tests.
The load frame is built around a robust twin column structure, ensuring extremely high rigidity up to 50 kN.
When the frame is used in PC control mode, all the main functions (speed fast/slow, direction up/down, stop). All functions can also be remotely managed by PC via a set of commands in ASCII format using RS 232 port.
In manual mode, the user-friendly keyboard on the front panel is used to control all the frame’s functions, including a rapid approach facility that reduces test set-up time. For efficient use the last settings are automatically recalled after switch on. The frame is equipped with micro switches that prevent over-travel problems. The panel and display are protected from water and dust by a waterproof membrane.

The frame has been designed for soil testing labs conducting UU (unconsolidated undrained), CU (consolidated undrained) and CD (consolidated drained) triaxial tests but it can also be used, due to its large range of speeds, to perform unconfined and others.
A complete range of parts and accessories is available to configure this machine for any typical triaxial soil testing application.
