Slurry Consolidation Device

This fully automatic electromechanical consolidation apparatus is designed to perform tests on specimens that have a large settlement e.g.

  • > Very fine-grained clay
  • > Tailing mud and mine waste
  • > study was to determine the consolidation behaviour of clay slurries
  • > phosphatic clays
  • > waste materials such as dredging
  • > Sea muds or oozy muds
  • > Harbor muds


Special consolidation cells with electromechanical loading systems, made by Wille Geotechnik®, enable all kinds of consolidation procedures to be applied (e.g. IL, CRS, CL, CG tests).

The device has a version of Temperature controlled between -10C degrees up to +60C degrees.

  • Applications
  • Special-compression cells to measure the consolidation behaviour of muds and viscous materials with measuring and/or pore water pressure controlling
  • Special cell resistance to aggressive fluids e.g. saline solution and corrosive materials
  • Special construction allows accurate measurement and control of normal stress, including measurement and compensation of wall friction influences
  • Built-in filter plates in head and base plates to remove free pore water
  • Multi-stage load cells allow for high levels of accuracy in control at low and high stresses
  • Multi-stage load cells
