Ring shear machine - TORSHEAR EmS

ASTM D6467 | BS 1377:7

Main Features

  • Fully automatic standalone ring shear soil testing system for performing torsional ring shear test in drained condition to determine the residual shear strength of cohesive soil.
  • Managed by local user interface with 6” touch screen high resolution color display
  • Environmentally friendly and quiet with brand new Electromechanical Servoactuation (EmS) technology
  • Lightweight and compact, Torshear EmS can be placed on a standard bench. Maximizes use of space in your laboratory.
  • Smart and easy-to-use with removable load cells and displacement transducers. Simplifies testing, maintenance and calibration.
  • Flexible and expandable with optional dedicated software — choose to control the unit either via the Integrated local user interface or with your PC. Gradually connect up to six units via LAN port using the same PC software allowing you to build your laboratory efficiently.
  • High-performing: Maximum vertical stress 1,200 kPa; Maximum shear stress 1,000 kPa. 
  • Infinite variable speed from 0.00001 to 1000°/min, with pre-shearing stage selectable and adjustable number of cycles of shearing.
  • Lightweight and easy to clean. Top-quality techno-polymeric materials offer excellent resistance to corrosion, wear and tear and to chemicals often mixed with soil specimens.
  • tecnical specifications
