CONTROLS Inc. Releases AUTOTRIAXQube Triaxial Testing System
CONTROLS Inc., Tucker, Georgia, has released its AUTOTRIAXQube, which is an all-in-one, automatic, triaxial testing system for the lab at your production facility. It is designed to make triaxial testing easier on lab personnel while fitting neatly in any lab and complimenting existing testing capabilities. The manufacturer states all existing accessories already in use with the 70-mm banded triaxial cell (28-WF4070) are compatible with the AUTOTRIAXQube. The manufacturer states there’s no need for external panels, tank or hydraulic connection; connect the AUTOTRIAXQube to water and power supply and start testing. The built-in vacuum pump, tank, control valves and cavitation system are designed to de-air the water quickly and efficiently down to levels of dissolved air acceptable for triaxial test methods.
A secure triaxial cell lifting system incorporates a new lifting mechanism that allows the operator to raise the cell to its highest position and rotate it through 90 degrees, until it’s safely held in place with a magnetic latch. A built-in hydraulic system speeds up the time required to set up the system correctly (water circuit saturation, pressure system and triaxial cell), thus avoiding possible damage to a sample already positioned in the triaxial cell.
