Consolidometers are precision instruments used to measure the strength of soil samples and provide an estimate of the specimen’s potential to settle under pavements and structures. They are available in Fixed and Floating-Ring models in all popular inch and metric sizes and meet ASTM D4546 / ASTM D2435 as well as AASHTO T 216. Consolidometers are used in testing with Consolidation Load Frames from Karol-Warner and other manufacturers. Two Porous Stones are included with each Consolidometer.
