Ultra-high performance centrifuge earthquake simulators
Since building our first high-performance centrifuge shaker back in 1992, PVL has manufactured and installed numerous different centrifuge shakers for customers located around the world. Ranging from small, single-axis simulators for small centrifuges, to larger multi-axis shakers for medium-sized centrifuges, to very large high-powered shakers for the some of the world's largest centrifuges, each model has been to designed to meet or exceed the demanding performance specifications of our customers, to be simple and reliable to operate, and to integrate with our customers' centrifuges in a safe and effective manner. Company founder Dr. Paul Van Laak has been active in dynamic centrifuge research since 1992 and has first-hand knowledge of the challenges and requirements of dynamic centrifuge testing. This experience enables PVL to provide equipment that is optimally suited for achieving useful research results in a safe and efficient manner.
