Consolidation Machines

One-dimensional consolidation testing of soils provides information for geotechnical engineers to calculate the expected settlement of structures and pavements. Karol-Warner’s exclusive CONBEL™ Consolidation Machines with pneumatic or dead-weight loading meet the most stringent demands of soil mechanics testing labs.


Consolidation Load Frames (Pneumatic)
Models: HM-356, HM-356F, HM-354, HM-354F, HM-355, HM-355F
Soil Consolidation Test Load Frames
  • Consolidation Load Frames (Pneumatic) use pneumatic pressure to instantaneously apply and maintain precisely controlled loads to soil specimens. Available in three models with load capacities that range from 16-64tsf.

  • Consolidation Load Frame (Dead-Weight) features a compact and economical table-top frame with a 48tsf capacity using a dead-weight loading system. Unit allows instant loading with minimal impact.
