Uniaxial press (Geocomp LoadTracII)


The unit performs both constant displacement rate and constant load tests. Displacement is achieved by controlling the position of the bottom platen using  an electronic stepper motor with a displacement speed range from 5 × 10^-6 to 2.5 × 10^-2 cm/s and measured using a builtin linear variable differential transformer (LVDT) displacement transducer. The press allow loads up to about 40  KN that produce stresses on our samples of about 20-30 MPa high-T tube furnace that allow for temperature up to 1100°C; hydrothermal cell. Software multitasking.
