Humboldt's HM-5820 is an automated pressure controller designed to handle saturation, consolidation and permeation of a triaxial test sample, as well as perform a shear function with the use of its integral HM-5020 Load Frame. This allows the technician to also perform triaxial shear tests without having to purchase an additional unit.

AUTOTRIAX2 is Wykeham Farrance's latest upgrade in laboratory testing equipment, with the capability to perform concurrently up to six fully automated triaxial tests without any human intervention! This article outlines the device's unique features. Read on for a detailed presentation!
