LoadTrac III

This smaller version is dedicated to running fully-automated consolidation and swell tests. Like its big brother, LoadTrac-II, one automated system will replace five manual ones in terms of production running incremental consolidation tests according to ASTM D2435 Method B, where successive load increments are applied after 100% primary consolidation. A full, incremental consolidation test can be completed in 24 to 48 hours on most materials. Other testing capabilities include fully automated constant load and constant volume swell tests.
