Karol-Warner Consolidometers are precision instruments used to measure 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. Consolidometers are used in testing with Consolidation Load Frames from Karol-Warner and other manufacturers.
Fixed Ring Consolidometers load the specimen from the top with the base of the sample ring fixed in place.
Floating Ring Consolidometer models transfer force to the specimen through both the top and bottom.
