Frozen Soil Triaxial System (FSTX-100)

The GCTS Frozen Soil Triaxial System uses a computer controlled metering valve and an internal copper vaporization coil for controlling test temperatures below the ambient room temperature.

The GCTS Frozen Soil Triaxial System uses a computer controlled metering valve and an internal copper vaporization coil for controlling test temperatures below the ambient room temperature. Measurements from two temperature probes are used to calculate and control the average temperature inside the triaxial cell. Included with this system is an efficient electrical heating and cooling unit for controlling the temperature inside the triaxial cell. This unit, unlike the LN2 systems, offers a safe and low operating cost. However, LN2 is required for temperatures under -15°C. A cascade digital temperature control is integrated with the testing software for precise temperature control while eliminating temperature overshoots.

The complete system also includes the load frame, triaxial cell, volume change device, pressure panel, sensors, digital signal conditioning, and software for complete integration of the testing system.

This system accepts specimens with diameters from 35 mm to 75 mm, and with specimen lengths of 2.5 times the diameter. Platens for 71 mm diameter specimens come standard with this system.

An automatic lift is provided to rise and lower the metallic cell wall for easy specimen setup.
