This is a combination dead weight and pneumatic load frame for stress controlled consolidation testing. It was designed to apply loads instantaneously and to maintain any set load, regardless of sample compression occurring within the loading interval. They are available in three load ranges based on a 2.5” diameter sample: 16 tsf, 32 tsf and 64 tsf. Over 1500 CONBELS are in use Worldwide and this series is a refinement of the original design and incorporates features that offer greater sensitivity and ease of operation.

This latest model features a dead weight mechanism that is used for loads from 100 psf to 3200 psf. The weight lever hangs to the side and all weights are included. A large pneumatic piston handles loads up to 16, 32 or 64 tsf.

This model utilizes a Fairchild low-bleed type of pressure regulator to set and maintain the load on the specimen. Known for their precision, this regulator is sensitive to 1/8” variations in water column. It requires a source for compressed air for operation. The unit is self-contained with a built-in digital readout and pressure transducer with 0.1% linearity.

Fabricated to survive harsh laboratory environments, the cabinets are steel and painted with a durable enamel. The load platform consists of 1” thick aluminum plate. Vertical rods are made from stainless steel.

The load platform features adjustable centering pads to aid in aligning the consolidometer. It will accept any consolidometer, regardless of manufacturer, up to a maximum diameter of 7.25” (184 mm)

Dial Indicator is not included in the price, choose the one needed for your application.

Note: This unit requires a source of compressed air for operation. Air pressure requirement: 63 psi
