Description:

  • The LoadTrac II load frame provides compression/extension testing for a number of geotechnical tests that must have accurate control of the rate of dis-placement during loading.
  • With acces-sories, the unit can perform uncon-fined compression, CBR, and triaxial shear phase testing.
  • The base unit includes a stepper mo-tor, lead screw, vertical tension rods and crosshead, displacement trans-ducer, electronic controls and network communications.
  • Versions of the unit are available to test loads up to 90 kN (20,000 lbs.).
  • Displacement rates can be set to any value between 0.00003 and 15 mm per minutes (0.000001 to 0.6 inches per minute).
  • The base unit can run in stand-alone mode without a computer.
  • It includes built-in data acquisition and display capability.
  • Sensor readings are dis-played in Sl or English units and stored in memory.
  • Optional software running in Win-dows® 2000, XP, Vista, 7 completely automates the test, reducing the data and preparing test results.

Applicable Test Standards:

  • ASTM D-2166, AASHTO T-208 Unconfined Compression Testing of Soils
