We are proud to introduce our new Vane shear test system. The system consists of a unit that is above ground and a probe that measures torque In Situ.
You can run the system as a traditional vane system with torque measurement above ground, but you can (and should) also use the probe that we call Memovane™ for measuring torque directly on the vane without friction losses.
After completing a vane tests in one hole you can create a file with resulting data. The system also creates a report with graphs showing measured torque at failure and a table of shear strength and sensitivity etc:
