HTRX-020 High Pressure Triaxial Cell
The GCTS HTRX-020 High Pressure Triaxial Cell was professionally engineered for testing stress and strain behaviors of rock specimens with great accuracy and precision. Its intuitive design also makes for hassle free testing.
The GCTS High Pressure Triaxial Cell was designed for testing 75 mm (3 inch) rock specimens with lengths of up to 160 mm at confining pressures of up to 20 MPa and axial loads of up to 400 kN. Other specimen diameters can also be tested with the use of optional platens.
The 150 mm inside diameter of the cell wall and the electrical feed-through connectors installed at the cell base allow the use of in-vessel instrumentation for precise measurements of deformation modulus and Poisson’s ratio. The standard specimen platens have O-ring grooves for sealing the specimen jacket and an upper spherical seat to minimize stress concentrations due to non-parallel specimen ends. Pore fluid lines and ports for both, upper and lower platens, are also standard for effective stress and permeability measurements.
