NER Autolab System 3000
Manufacturer: New England Research
Model Number: Autolab 3000
AutoLab 3000 is a customizable servo-hydraulic operated system for triaxial measurements with software-controlled arbitrary stress paths on rock specimens up to 101.6 mm (4.0 in) in diameter at in situ stress conditions, pore pressure, and temperature. The pressure vessel and pore pressure systems are housed in an external furnace to maintain a uniform temperature in the vessel and pore fluids throughout the experiment.
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 is convenient for routine measurements at reservoir pressures up to 138 MPa (20,000 psi) and temperatures up to 150˚C (302˚F).
