EN  12390-4, EN 772-1 Testing frames for cubes , cylinders and blocks
50-C47Z00, 50-C57Z00 and 50-C77Z00 frames, 2000 to 5000 kN cap., feature a four column rigid welded steel construction, with heavyt duty spherical seat in oil bath and compression platens 310x510 mm suitable for testing blocks and all other standard specimens. Tested for stability conforming to EN 12390-4. Complete with pedestal, front door and rear transparent fragment guard (except for the 4000 and 5000 kN models).

EN 772-1 Heavy duty compression frames 4000 | 5000 kN for blocks 
50-C69Z00 and 50-C79Z00, 4000 and 5000 kN cap., These models featuring four column rigid welded steel construction, are fitted EN Premium heavy duty spherical seat and block platens 310x510x90 mm. They include a specifically designed explosion-proof test kit comprehending: safety cables securing the upper platen to the frame, metallic perforated fragment guard and bottom platen anti-fall safety system thickness and Heavy duty premium spherical seat.

EN Four prestressed column Testing frames
High stiffness frames particularly suitable for research purposes. 50-C86Z00 and 50-C86Z10  models are identical except for the load cell incorporated in the piston of tle 50-C68Z10 version, providing very high accuracy starting from the very beginning of load scale. Heavy duty spherical seat in oil bath, tested for stability to EN 12390-4. Complete with pedestal, front door and rear transparent fragment guard.

MACHINE ACCESSORIES
Lifting assembly for block testing platens This accessory is used for easier placement of distance pieces which can be used, when necessary, to reduce the vertical clearance of the machines/
frames.
 
50-C9060/A
Lifting device for bottom block platen for easier placement pieces compatible platen size 310 x 510 x 50 mm thickness. Weight: 19 kg (approx.)
50-C9060/B
Lifting device for bottom block platen for easier placement of distance pieces compatible platen size 310 x 510 x 90 mm thickness. Weight: 18 kg (approx.)

Additional Information

Balanced pre-tensioning system of 50-C86Z00  and 50-C86Z10 frames
The four columns of the frames consist of two elements, one contained within the other. The internal part is the column and works in tension, whilst the external part is a tube and works in compression. This configuration guarantees tensional uniformity at all load levels.
