Triaxial Load Frames

All Karol-Warner Triaxial Load Frames and components are ideal for unconsolidated-undrained triaxial soil testing to meet ASTM D2850. For testing consolidated-undrained, or consolidated-drained specimens under ASTM D4767, only the HM-397 Pro Loader model can be used. These versatile load frames can be used for load testing of many material types in the lab.
  • Pro-Loader Load Frames feature 10,000 lbf (44.5kN) capacities and strain rates of 0.001—0.1in/min (0.0254—2.54mm/min) or 0.0001—0.3in/min (0.00254—7.62mm/min). Analog or digital component sets are available for specific tests.
  • Pro-Loader II Load Frame is equally adaptable for various soil and asphalt tests, but features a higher overall strain rate of 0.02—2.0in/min (0.508—50.8mm/min)
  • Triaxial Stress/Strain Kits & Components are available in either digital or analog options and measure load and sample displacement during triaxial soil testing in ASTM D2850, D4767, and AASHTO T 297.
