Insitu Vane Shear Apparatus
The apparatus is suitable for testing at the bottom of a bore hole.
This consists of Torque Applicator mounted on a detachable stand. By applying torque, deformation of torque ring can be read on a dial gauge. From the calibration curve, deformation can be converted into torque in Kg. Cm.
