Flexible Wall Permeability Test Cells for 1.4 to 6in dia. specimens are compatible with the Master Control Panel or Auxiliary Control Panel, and other similar systems. The units have heavy-wall clear acrylic chambers and are equipped with solid machined-aluminum bases. Test Cells have precision zero-volume change ball valves and are constructed with rugged quality fittings. The maximum operating pressure is 150psi (10.3bar) – inquire about units built to handle higher test pressures. Chamber has an inside diameter of 7.5x13.5in (191x343mm) Dia.xH.
The Flexible Wall Permeability Cell has stainless steel valves and fittings that offer corrosion-resistance from harsh permeant fluids.
Permeability Test Cells can test a range of sample sizes; this model can test soil specimens from 1.4in (35.6mm) to 6.0in (152.4mm). A size-specific Test Cell Kit is required for use with test cells and sold separately on the Test Cell Accessories page. Each kit contains the individual components needed for testing a specific sample size, and all components correlate to that size. The kit includes one anodized aluminum specimen cap and pedestal, two Porous Stones, two Latex Membranes and four O-Rings. Several optional accessories, including the Specimen Height Indicator for Triaxial/Permeability Testing and the Digital Pore Pressure Gauge w/Transducer, are available separately.
