NER Autolab System 1500
Manufacturer: New England Research
Model Number: Autolab 1500
AutoLab 1500 is a servo-hydraulic operated system for triaxial measurements with software-controlled arbitrary stress paths on rock specimens up to 50.8 mm (2.0 in) in diameter at in situ stress conditions, pore pressure, and temperature.
The high pressure triaxial system consists of a pressure vessel with an internal piston for differential stress and servo-hydraulic intensifiers for differential stress, confining and pore pressure. This design comes in two standard configurations, making it convenient for routine measurements at reservoir pressures up to 69 MPa (10,000 psi) or 138 MPa (20,000 psi) and temperatures up to 120˚C (248˚F).
