Large shear testing machine

ASTM D3080 | ASTM D6243 | BS 1377:7 | EN ISO 12957

Large shear machine - SHEARMATIC 300 - 27-WF2304
Live data capture software - Edit graph
Live data capture software - Logging shear

Main Features

  • Ideal for testing Shale, Industrial slag, Brick rubble, Colliery spoils
  • Sample size up to 300 
  • Two models available with different type of Shear box: in coated steel or in stainless steel for testing high corrosive materials
  • 100 kN shear and consolidation force
  • Steplessly variable speed control from 0 to 11.00000 mm/min
  • Automatic hydraulic application of pre-set consolidation steps (up to 50)
  • Automatic test management from consolidation to failure: the operator is only requested to remove the clamping screws of the shear box
  • Straight connection between shear box, drive unit and load cell for the axial transmission of the horizontal force along the shearing plane, instead of the classic “swan neck”
  • Easy and immediate set up of the test parameters via the large digital graphic display
  • Possibility to set different speeds and travel (forward and reverse) in the residual shear tests
  • Each single step of axial force can be applied instantaneously or by means of a linear ramp in a pre-set time interval
  • Different and independent data recording for consolidation and failure
  • Live data capture software
  • tecnical specifications
    • Scroll the table
      • Sample size: up to 300 mm. Can be reduced to 150 mm using 27-WF2304/1 150 mm sample insert. See accessories.
      • Shear and vertical force: 100 kN
      • Speed range: steplessly variable from o to 11.00000 mm/min
      • Maximum travel: 75 mm
      • Steps of consolidation: up to 50
      • Data acquisition: RS 232 serial port for use with Direct and residual Geo-Analysis templates (see accessories).
      • Power: 2000 W
      • Overall dimensions: (wxdxh) 1470x758x1570 mm approx.
      • Weight approx.: 800 kg
