The one-dimensional consolidation test of a soil sample enables
to ascertain the settlement characteristic over a given period of
time. The soil specimen under test is axially loaded and laterally
Loads are applied with progressive increases and the settlement
values are read on a dial gauge or on a digital display (through a
Two different oedometer models are proposed:
S260 Front loading oedometer with dial gauge or digital data
S262N Edotronic, pneumatic, fully automatic touch-screen
consolidation apparatus (see next pages).
FRONT LOADING OEDOMETER
Rigidly manufactured from aluminium alloy casting to provide a high
degree of accuracy with any frame distorsion under load. The load
bridge group is supported in high accuracy self-aligning seat balls.
The beam provides three loading ratio: 9:1 10:1 11:1 and the
beam assembly is fitted with an adjustable counterbalance
Maximun load: 170 kg of slotted weights, corresponding
to 1870 kg using the beam ratio 11:1
The oedometer accepts cells up to 100 cm²
Supplied complete with rod holding the weights and
coupling block holding the dial gauge or transducer.
Supplied without: consolidation cell, weights, dial gauge
(or transducer), holding bench which have to be ordered
Weight: 25 kg approx.
