RCT-2000 Rock Creep Testing System


The GCTS RCT-2000 Rock Creep Testing System was engineered to perform long-term tests without requiring a continuous power input (it can operate for several days without power). This system is supplemented with indicators, gauges, and software to create a simple to use system and enhance user experience.

 

  • 2,000 kN (450 kip) load capacity
  • Load capacities up to 4,500 kN (1,000 kips) available
  • Compressed air over oil pressure system for uninterrupted testing
  • Battery powered data acquisition
  • Available options: axial & circumferential deformation measurement system, platens with ultrasonic transducers, and high/low temperature control subsystem
  • Accepts GCTS high pressure triaxial cell and other testing components
  • Ideal for performing long-term creep tests
  • Economical "turn-key" systems built to customer specifications

The GCTS RCT-2000 Rock Creep Testing System was designed to perform long-term tests without requiring a continuous power input. It operates with only 800 kPa (100 psi) air pressure with minimal flow. This system can operate for several days without power, using a compressor with a large tank. The RCT-2000 includes load and deformation digital indicators as well as an analog gauge to read the applied load. Software and a USB based data acquisition are also provided to easily interface with a laptop for recording test data.

 

On-specimen deformation instrumentation can be provided as well as triaxial cells and other testing components.

  • 2000 kN axial load capacity
  • 700 kN/mm frame stiffness
  • 100 mm stroke
  • 400 mm horizontal opening
  • 600 mm vertical opening
  • 800 kPa air pressure input
