UCS Load & Displacement Measurement

Component sets for ASTM D2166 or AASHTO T 208 Unconfined Compression testing of soil specimens are purchased separately for use with Gilson Load Frames. Analog sets with dial gauges and aluminum Load Rings are available in 500 or 1,000lbf capacities. A Digital Component Set with 1,000lbf capacity load cell and two-channel readout is also available. Sets include a mounting bracket and plastic specimen disc.

  • Unconfined Component Sets are analog or digital component sets needed to conduct unconfined compression testing with a Load Frame. The analog sets come with a 500lbf or 1,000lbf Load Ring, Mechanical Dial Indicator, Dial Indicator Bracket, and Plastic Discs. The digital sets include 1,000lbf Load Cell, 2in Displacement Transducer, Two-Channel Digital Readout, Transducer Bracket, and Plastic Disc.
  • Load & Displacement Readout Kits available in four capacities for use in determining electronic force and displacement measurements.
  • Digital Readouts display electronic measurements on two or four channels from Load Cells and Displacement Transducers.
  • Load Cells electronically measure applied loads from 500lbf to 20,000lbf.
  • Linear Variable Displacement Transducers are available in 1 and 2in ranges and used to measure soil deformation or movement.
  • Load Rings are available in capacities ranging from 250lbf to 10,000lbf and used to provide analog force measurements.
  • Digital Dial Indicators display movement and displacement measurements and are available in a variety of ranges and resolutions.
  • Mechanical Dial Indicators are low-friction analog units for accurate displacement readings.
