Con Matic IPC Automated Consolidation System
DIDAC Export offer an optimum quality of Con Matic IPC Automated Consolidation System. The Con matic IPC is a fully-automated, incremental pressure controller for performing incremental consolidation and one-dimensional swell tests. The ConMatic IPC allows consolidation, constant load and volume swell tests to be run automatically, freeing up technicians for other tasks and reducing the duration of the testing procedures by more than half effectively saving time and manpower and increasing lab profitability. One Con matic automated system can replace the production of several manual machines running incremental consolidation tests according to ASTM D2435 Method B, where successive load increments are applied after 100% primary consolidation.
Once a sample has been placed onto the test platform and the test conditions set, the Con Matic IPC performs all consolidation tests, including moving to the next stress level, without operator assistance. The system automatically moves through the different test parameters specified by the user with incremental consolidation tests typically being completed in 24 to 48 hours. The next software uses sample deformation readings taken from the displacement transducer and load readings from the load cell to maintain a constant applied stress or strain to the sample through the use of an accurate stepper motor. Test results are recorded and rendered in real-time on the computer screen while test data is stored and calculations are performed automatically.
