General description
General description
This versatile flexural frame has been designed to test either standard concrete beams or other concrete products as  the roomy  testing place can accommodate large specimens. It is proposed in two versions: with pressure transducer, 150 kN cap., and with load cell, 100 kN cap., granting high accuracy for testing low strength specimens. All models are fit with piston travel limit switch and connection kit to the control console. Bearers not included. See accessories.
