High standards Load Frames

The HM-398 Gilson Pro-Loader ll Load Frame is designed in cooperation with Karol-Warner to be adaptable for a wide range of laboratory soil tests.

It It has the highest overall strain rate of the Triaxial Load Frames, which allows use for a wider range of test methods. Digital and analog components and sets that attach to the Load Frame are available for Unconfined Compression, CBR, Soil Cement and Triaxial testing. The Pro-Loader ll Frame has 10,000 lbf (44.5kN) capacity and 11.9x37.3in (302x947mm) WxH frame opening. Unit runs on a 3/4hp DC motor and the controller regulates strain rate of 0.02-2.0in/min (0.508-50.8mm/min) to ±1% of set point. A high-speed jog feature rapidly positions the platen for fast set-up and a wider range of test methods. Platen diameter is 8in (203mm). Sturdy, 14-gauge painted steel enclosure has adjusting nuts on the 1.25in (32mm) coarse-threaded rods to quickly adjust the horizontal cross-head height.
