Dead-Weight Consolidation Frame

Able to survive in even the harshest laboratory environments, the HM-1100 will provide you with reliable service day-in and day-out. The design features a rugged frame design manufactured from aluminum with stainless steel vertical rods, horizontal cross arms and beam support rods. The load arm incorporates 9:1, 10:1, and 11:1 beam ratios for greater flexibility and loading weight requirements. Using the 10:1 ratio on 2.5" (63 mm) diameter samples, the system is capable of producing load up to 48 tsf (4,597 kPa).

Features include:


  • Triple beam ratios minimize loading weight requirements
  • 48 tsf (5,148 kPa) maximum load capacity
  • Aluminum and stainless steel construction for corrosion resistance and long life
  • Wide range of consolidation cells available in fixed ring, floating ring, permeability and backpressure designs
  • Loading weights available in both, tsf and kg versions
  • Available with standard mechanical dial gauges, digital indicators or with strain transducers (LSCT) coupled to one of our data loggers
