Consolidation equipment (Oedometer)

Standards:  INV E 151 | NTC 1967 | ASTM D 2435

The equipment for carrying out consolidation tests uses weights which, by means of a lever arm, apply a stress to a soil sample placed in a standard cell (chamber). The measurement of the deformation is made by means of a dial comparator.

Pinzuar offers consolidation equipment in single-, two- and three-chamber configurations, with analog or digital measurement systems, and systems for systematically recording test data using its software.

Through the software, tests performed on up to six (6) consolidometers linked to a multichannel and through it, to the computer can be simultaneously recorded. The software, in real time, records the data and performs calculations for the determination of consolidation times, for each load and discharge and finally presents consolidation and pre-consolidation curves, together with the results, in separate spreadsheets for each sample.
