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. 
The large testing space is ideal for performing, with the suitable accessory, splitting tests and flexural tests on concrete specimens. The pedestal is not included and has to be ordered separately. See accessories.

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 cap.:
extends the possible applications to flexural tests on cement and com­pression tests on low strength specimens. The Class 1 accuracy can be extendedwith 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. Pedestal not included. See accessories.

WIZARD 2 Semi-Automatic Power and Control system
Dual stage pump: low pressure/high delivery for fast piston approach and high pressure/low volume for loading. Fitted with special hand operated pressure-compensated proportional valve for the manual preset of load rate.
Load measurement: set up of specimen dimensions; easy preload zeroing; real time display of load and stress; real time display of applied load rate by symbols for easy adjustment; digital calibration; effective resolution 1/65000; LAN port for PC connection.
The WIZARD 2 can be factory fitted with a internal serial printer. See accessories.
 
Safety features
Includes: pressure valve to avoid machine overloading; piston trav­el limit switch; emergency stop button; front door and rear transparent guard.
