Electro-mechanical TRITECH machines for triaxial tests

WYKEHAM FARRANCE’s electro-mechanical TRITECH machines are the original high-performance load frames for triaxial tests.

Introduced by the company over 50 years ago, they have undergone continuous develop­ment and are the ideal solution for advanced and research laboratories that want to perform high quality tests at high levels of productivity. Based on heavy duty triaxial load frames, with advanced electronics and high quality components, these frames are the top of the range currently available for triaxial testing on soils.

The load frames are built around a robust twin chromed-column structure, ensuring extremely high rigidity. The loading platen is made from stainless steel. Four models are available depending on the max capacity and if equipped or not with a built-in data acquisition. The models are fitted with 4 built-in channels and data acqui­sition, to be used either in stand-alone mode or connected to a PC. TRITECH4C are the ideal solution for advanced and research laboratories who require high quality and productivity testing. This model is a stand alone machine that can perform compression/extension triaxial tests, unconfined, CBR, Marshall and general compression tests. These load frames are equipped with a wide user friendly touch screen display, side mounted and very ergonomic allowing local control of the main functions and data acquisition. In each model the panel and dis­play are protected from water and dust.
