General description
General description
These Multipurpose compression / flexure testers have been designed for various applications in which a limited maximum load is requested, together with a large testing space. They are suitable to determinate compressive strength on lightweight concrete, soil-cement specimen, high strength cement and refractory specimens. 
The large testing space is ideal for performing, with the suitable accessories, splitting tests and flexural tests on concrete specimens. 
 
They are available in the two different versions:
 
single compression station, 500 kN or 600 kN cap.:
for compression tests on low strength specimens. The Class 1 accuracy can be extended from 1% of testing machine full scale with special calibration procedures (see Upgrading Option and Technical Specifications).
 
double station model, 600/15 kN or 500/15 kN cap.:
extends the possible applications to flexural tests on cement and com­pression tests on low strength specimens. The Class 1 accuracy can be extended with special calibration procedures (see Upgrading Option and Technical Specifications).

Frames and compression platens
High rigidity solid one piece steel frame. Spherical seat allows free alignment at the initial contact with the specimen. For compression platens see Technical Specifications. Pedestal not included. See Accessories.

Pilot, Automatic power and control system
Dual stage pump, centrifugal for fast approach and multi-piston for loading, DC motor, ES Energy Saving technology to reduce the power consumption and ensure silent operation. For detailed information see Additional information.
Hardware 
132,000 points effective resolution, three channels, touch screen graphic display 240x128 pixel, sampling rate 50/sec, large storing capacity on USB pen drive, test data downloadable to PC, Ethernet port, real time management DATAMANAGER software (optional, see Accessories)
Firmware

Additional Information

The PILOT compression testers represent the more sophisticated and advanced evolution of the usual compression testers.
This new and advanced system satisfies, first of all, the requirements for the automatic accurate and constant load rate application conforming to standards. The test cycle with closed loop digital feedback is automatically performed by simply pressing the start button. The other important innovation concern the “ES technology” which features the accurate oil flow control with no oil dispersion, silent operation, cold oil temperature and, finally, low energy consumption saving over the 30% energy compared to traditional systems.
The automatic test procedure, once the specimen has been positioned and centered and the machine switched on is:
  • Set test parameters, including load rate, on the touch screen (can be avoided by default for repetitive tests)
  • Press the start button on the touch screen
  • Move the oil delivery valve upwards
  • The machine automatically starts the rapid platen approach, switches to the test speed once the specimen comes into contact with the upper platen and, finally, releases the pressure upon specimen failure
  • Save the test including data results and load/time graph. The test execution conforming to standards can be easily proved.
  • Move the oil delivery valve downwards.
