PTC-series Proppant Triaxial cell


The cell serves as a chamber in which cylindrical resin coated proppant specimens can be subjected to both axial and radial compression loading. Triaxial stresses are imposed by applying a circumferential confining pressure, in tandem with an axial load. The sample is fitted into a Viton sleeve between hardened steel endcaps and the assembly is immersed in confining pressurized oil. Top & bottom pore fluid ports for pore pressure tests at both upper and lower platens are an integral part of the cell architecture. A low friction loading piston is provided with the triaxial cell. The cell is also be provided with a heating mantle.
