2018 Geotechnical Testing Catalogues compiled the catalogues of the Leading Geotechnical Testing Firms!!


Press Here to download the 2018 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. SmartDCP for Dual-Mass Penetrometers Vastly improve accuracy and ease of collecting and transferring data from field to office. You can find more information at p.23.

Gilson is also α 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. You can find more information about the High Capacity Geosynthetic Direct Shear Machine on p. 193.

Geocomp Laboratory 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 testing system Cyclic Direct Simple Shear DSS_ load frame, stands out on p. 39. The ShearTrac II-DSS system is a universal shear system capable of performing the consolidation, static and cyclic direct simple shear phases under full automatic control. This system is of the type developed at NGI in the mid 1960's. The DSS test generates a fairly homogeneous state of shear stress throughout the specimen, which provides initial stress condition, stress path, and deformation configuration that models numerous field loading conditions more closely than any other strength tests such as triaxial. The system consists of a computer-controlled unit that utilizes a micro-stepper motor to apply the vertical load and a servo-motor for the horizontal load to the soil specimen.

Wykeham Farrance is also one of the longest established manufacturing companies in the world of Geotechnical Testing Systems with 75+ years expertise in the field and commitment to quality testing and is now part of the CONTROLS GROUP as the Soil Mechanics Division. Their latest generation of Triaxial Systems for Soil Mechanics can boost your laboratory with their modular devices expertly designed for Soil Mechanics testing.
