2017 Geotechnical Testing Catalogues

Geoengineer.org compiled the catalogues of the Leading Geotechnical Testing Firms!!

 

Press Here to download the testing catalogues of Humboldt, Gilson, Wykeham Farrance and Geocomp for your review!            

What's new:

Humboldt is a well-established manufacturer and supplier of construction materials testing equipment. Humboldt Mfg. Co. products are available worldwide through their dealer network and directly from their factory. Humboldt has been pushing forward with its new Elite Series testing machines that feature touch-screen technology, and automatic testing control. Moreover Humboldt's Hydrometer Jar uses a microprocessor-based temperature control with integral heater and chiller.

Gilson is a also manufacturer and distributor of high-quality construction testing equipment and laboratory testing equipment suited to your unique applications. Their materials testing equipment spans across many industries including construction, laboratory, pharmaceuticals, and much more! In Gilson’s geotechnical catalogue, the equipment for the well-known California Bearing Ratio stands out , as well as the Digital Load & Displacement Indicators provide electronic displacement measurements.

GeocompLaboratory Systems are automated universal testing stations which measure the mechanical properties of soil, rock, and geosynthetics. These state-of-the-art systems are capable of production work as well as high-quality research. Their brand new Resonant Column and Torsional Shear device stands out on the catalogue. Geocomp’s RC-TS pioneers a new approach to resonant column testing in which rotation of the top of the specimen is measured very precisely by two accelerometers and torque is measured directly at the base. Measured rotation and torque are used to directly calculate shear modulus and damping. Another highlight is  the Cyclic Triaxial products that consist of a triaxial cell to retain the sample, and a load frame with computer-controlled platen.

Wykeham Farrance is also one of the longest established manufacturing companies in the world of Geotechnical Testing Systems with commitment to quality testing and is now part of the CONTROLS GROUP as the Soil Mechanics Division. The electromechanical servoactuation (EmS) technology that has been developed by Controls certainly stands out in the catalogue. It is a silent,environmental friendly, performing technology that eclipses the pneumatic systems removing the need of large, noisy, power consuming air compressors and air treatment devices. The benefits of the electromechanical actuation are numerous and are ‘threatening” pneumatic systems, that require compressed air.
