ASTM C109 | ASTM C349 | ASTM C348 | EN 196-1
General description
General description
Four columns robust frame with single or double test chamber. Simple effect ram with electrical limit switch. Single test chamber model 65-L17Z10 incorporate compression bearing plates with spherical seat for portion of prisms 40x40x160 mm broken in flexure conforming to EN 196-1. All the other models, single or double test chambers, are fitted with 165 mm dia. round compression plates and have to be completed with the suitable accessory. All frames are fitted with precision load cell for load measurement. The 40x40 mm platens of models 65-L17Z10  can be supplied complete with Surface hardness certificate. See Upgrading options.

Connection to control consoles
The 15 kN load pistons of the double test chamber model 65-L28Z10 and single chamber model 65-L58Z10 connected to Pilot and Automax Control consoles, require the 65-L1400/X5 pressure regulator which. See Upgrading options.

Machine/Frames precision Class. EN 12390-4, ASTM E74
All frames, when connected to a suitable control console, can be calibrated to Class 1  starting from 10% of load scale as specified in the specification table. By special calibration procedure, it is possible to obtain Class 1 starting from 3 to 300 kN (calibration code 50-C0050/CAL) and starting from 0.75 to 15 kN (calibration code 50-C0050/CAL5). This option has to be specified at time of order.

Safety features
Model 65-L17Z10 include a cylindrical transparent fragment guard. All the other models can be completed with the relevant protection. See accessories. All models are fitted with ram travel limit switch.
