HM-354 CONBEL® Pneumatic Consolidation Test System has load capacity to 32tsf (3,064.3kPa) and requires a minimum of 123psi (8.5bar) of compressed air.
HM-355 CONBEL® Pneumatic Consolidation Test System has load capacity to 48tsf (4,596.5kPa) and requires a minimum of 188psi (13bar) of compressed air.
Karol-Warner CONBEL® Pneumatic Consolidation Systems are available in two different load capacities. Both instantaneously apply and maintain pneumatic loads for precision consolidation testing and feature a dead-weight mechanism for application of small loads from 100—3,200psf (4.8—153.2kPa). All necessary weights are included. Applied loads are maintained by a precision pressure regulator. The selfcontained system includes a digital readout and pressure transducer with a linearity of ±0.1%. Small footprint saves valuable bench space.
The 1in (25.4mm) thick aluminum platforms have adjustable centering pads and hold any consolidation ring less than 7.25in (184mm) diameter. Platform clearance is 8.25x7.75in (210x197mm), WxH. Stainless steel vertical rods support the cross-head and dial gauge. Sturdy, enamel-coated steel cabinets protect the unit. Overall size of both units is 20x14.5x20.5in (508x368x521), WxDxH.
Fixed or floating ring consolidation cells must be ordered separately for each consolidation frame. The 2.5in (63.5mm) dia. Consolidation Rings include a stainless steel base, load pad, ball bearing and two porous stones. For proper loading in HM-354 and HM-355 CONBEL® Consolidometers, HMA-81 Loading Ball is required. The MA-333 0.5x0.0001in Dial Indicator is also required. Other accessories available are the HMA-745 2.5in dia. Stainless Steel Cutting Ring and the HMA-88 Stainless Steel Calibration Disc. Stated systems maximum load capacities are based on use of 2.5in (63mm) dia. Consolidation Ring.
