Laboratory Vane Shear Apparatus (Motorised)
Consists of a torque head adjustable in height by means of a lead
screw rotated by a drive wheel to enable the vane to be lowered into
the specimen. Rotation of the vane is by means of an electrically operated
rate of rotating is 1/60 R.P.M. Suitable for operation on 230 V A.C.
Single Phase which operates a worm gear arrangement turning the
upper end of a calibration torsion spring, vane dia, rod dia, vane size &
vane height are as per IS specifications.
The vane shaft is attached through the hollow upper shaft to a
resettable pointer, which indicates the angle indicates the angle of
torque on a dial graduated in degree the dial reading multiplied by
spring factor gives the torque a container for soil sample is also
supplied & a sampling tube of 38mm. i.d. & 150mm long can also be
used as container .
