The Permeability Test Chamber 6" Specimens-Brass is constructed of high-quality materials throughout for long-lasting performance. The cell top and base are precision machined from 6061 T6 aluminum and then hard-coated and Teflon-impregnated for a durable finish. To facilitate sample setup, the chamber and cell top can be quickly and easily removed by loosening the three knobs that hold the upper assembly to the base. The clear acrylic chamber provides a working pressure of 150 psi (1,000 kPa) and is tested to 250 psi (1,700 kPa).
The cell has five, no-volume-change, valves aligned along the front of the cell for maximum convenience. Two valves handle top drainage, two valves handle bottom drainage, and one valve handles filling/emptying and providing confining pressure to the cell. Brass valves are standard with these cells.
Cell dimensions are: 13-3/4" H x 8-3/4" dia. (349.2 x 222.3mm). Overall dia. is: 11" (279.4mm).
