Advanced Lab Container (ALC)

SA Geolab International is proud to announce the setting up our first advance 20-ft DNV lab container. This will be the first portable advance lab in the world. We are pioneering this approach and this portable advance lab can operate on a vessel or any onshore location in the world including remote outback areas.

 

The container is also equipped with an oven or any other add-on that is necessary for the lab testing including torvane, lab vane, fall cone etc. There are also 2 GDS triaxial testing systems that will be capable of doing CAU/CK0U compression/extension up to 40kN capacity with bender element.

The lab equipment shall include:

  • 1 GDSSS - for simple shear tests at 5kN capacity

  • 1 EMDCSS – for cyclic simple shear tests at 10kN, 2Hz capacity

  • 2 Modified AOS - Continuous rate of loading consolidation to 5MPa loading pressure as well as triaxial tests at 10kN capacity for UU, CIU/CID or hydraulic conductivity (constant head triaxial permeability) tests.

  • 2 GDS Triaxial Testing Systems – Up to 40kN capacity, with extended base to accommodate bender element if required.

  • 1 Minidyn – for cyclic triaxial tests at 10kN, 2Hz capacity

GDS Static Simple Shear (Left) – Up to 5kN capacity.

GDS Cyclic Simple Shear (Right) – Up to 5kN, 0.01 – 2Hz capacity.

Samples for simple shear tests can be saturated prior to shearing.
