DC-series Deviatoric triaxial cell


The DC-series deviatoric triaxial cells are engineered explicitly for rock triaxial testing, eliminating the need for an external frame to apply axial loads. Instead, the cell features an integrated hydraulic deviator chamber that directly exerts the axial force on the sample. Each specimen is housed in a Teflon sleeve, secured between hardened steel end caps, and then submerged in pressurized oil for confinement. Built-in electrical connectors at the base of the cell facilitate the integration of internal monitoring instruments. The cell's design also includes fluid ports on both the upper and lower platens for conducting pore pressure tests, which is a standard feature of its architecture. Customization options include a variety of platen diameters to accommodate different sample geometries. Additionally, a heating system can be incorporated into the cell if necessary.
