Triaxial Cells offer solid performance with Load Frames and Master or Auxiliary Control Panels in testing shear strength and stress-strain relationships of soil specimens in accordance with ASTM and AASHTO standards. Undisturbed or remolded soil specimens can be tested as required by the test method.

Each Triaxial Cell must be equipped with a Triaxial Test Cell Kit
, which contains components required for mounting and testing specific sample diameters. Gilson’s Triaxial Cells have clear acrylic chambers and are designed for use with Load Frames and Control Panels by Gilson as well as those of other manufacturers. These rugged cells are available with brass or stainless steel fittings, with models to test specimens in diameters ranging from 1.4 to 6in (36 to 152mm).
- Triaxial Cell, 1.4 to 3in dia. Specimens has a 4.75x10.75in (121x273mm) chamber, and can accommodate cylindrical specimens in diameters from 1.4in (35.6mm) to 3.0in (76.2mm) when fitted with appropriate Test Cell Kits.
- Triaxial Cell, 1.4 to 4in dia. Specimens has a 5.0x12.125in (127x308mm) chamber interior. In addition to the specimen diameter range listed above, this Cell also accommodates 4.0in (101.6mm) specimen diameters.
- Triaxial Cell for 6in dia. Specimens is designed for use only with 6in (152.4mm) cylindrical specimens. It has a 9.625x18in (244.5x457mm) chamber interior.
