Designed to test concrete sewer and drain pipes used in drainage works, water supply systems, irrigation systems etc. The machine is available in two versions:
50-C9602 conforming to ASTM C497
50-C9612 conforming to EN 1916
This EN version is suitable for testing round shaped pipes, cylindrical barrel shape over the full length without sockets conforming to EN 1916 Annex C, fig. C.2a. Compression tests can also be performed on cylindrical pipes with sockets, provided that you specify, at time of request, the shape and dimensions of above sockets to verify the compatibility with the loading bearers.
The difference between the two models concerns, mainly, the lower supports and the upper bearing beam. The machines do not include the elastomeric bearing strips or similar which have to be provided on site.
