GCTS Triaxial Testing Systems are manufactured according to the user’s design specifications. Our expert designing and engineering is sure to meet the user’s every need in rock triaxial testing. Our systems also come with intuitive software to make the testing process that much easier and accurate.
The Triaxial Testing Equipment for Rocks were designed to test numerous rock characteristics in a rapid, automated manner. With a Triaxial Testing System, triaxial, direct tension, resistivity, permeability, and ultrasonic tests can be performed on a rock specimen with ease.
The Triaxial Testing Systems for Rocks feature:
ASTM D7012 Standard Test Methods for Compressive Strength and Elastic Moduli of Intact Rock Core Specimens under Varying States of Stress and Temperatures
The GCTS Triaxial Systems for Rocks are designed to easily perform multiple tests to determine the characteristics of a rock sample. These systems feature a closed-loop, servo-controlled normal load actuator which, when combined with the advanced software developed by GCTS, allow for an automatic testing procedure that requires little input from the operator.
The Rapid Triaxial Systems are designed with the cell wall mounted on a hydraulic lift, allowing for rapid specimen loading into the triaxial cell. This allows the user to spend more time testing and less time preparing the specimen, resulting in an increase in production.
