Motorized Vane Shear Tester

Vane testing is used to determine the total shear resistance of normally cohesive, un-drained soils by fast shearing.

The semiautomatic lab vane was developed and designed according to the latest scientific and research insights and requirements so that undisturbed soil samples (e.g. core cutters) as well as treated samples (e. g. Proctor samples) or artificial mixtures can be tested for practical applications as well as for research purposes.

Due to variable fastening of the sample container and the height-adjustable column truss, it is possible to use sample containers of almost any size and form.
