FlowTrac II

The hydraulic Rowe Cell system is used because of its multiple drainage (up to eight conditions) options as well as the capability of testing large diameter samples through the use of water pressure on a flexible diaphragm. Furthermore, free strain and equal strain can be applied by applying the water pressure on the top of the sample through a flexible platen or a rigid one.

Applicable Test Standards
