ELITE SERIES Automated, 3-Channel Pressure / Volume Controllers

The HM-5810 is an automated Pressure/Volume Controllers designed to handle saturation, consolidation and permeation of a triaxial test sample. In this application it can be used solely for permeability testing as well, eliminating the need for distribution panels, etc. The HM-5810 is all you need to successfully do permeability testing for soil.


Cell, head and tail pressure can be set in increments of 0.1 PSI while volume change is measured to 0.0001cc. The flow rate for permeation can be set from 1 cc/sec (60 cc/min) down to less than 0.000002 cc/sec (0.00012 cc/min). There are three data input channels – one for each pressure transducer, or if you are only doing permeability, you will only need one of the channels/pressure transducers.

The HM-5810 provides an accurate and simplified permeability setup, which eliminates the need for separate distribution panels, and simplifying tubing and control cable setup. By using the integral staging platform, the HM-5810 provides an extremely compact and organized setup.

The HM-5810 is built around Humboldt‘s integral, data logger with touch-screen control, which allows the HM-5810 to be used as a standalone device capable of full test control and data logging. It can also be controlled by a networked computer at any location with access to the network.
