MULTIPURPOSE - PILOT PRO - 500-600 and 500-600/15 kN cement compression and flexural machines, multipurpose models.

The new automatic testers which combine high productivity with Energy Saving.

ASTM C109 | ASTM C349 | ASTM C348 | EN 196-1 | EN 13286-41 | EN 933-5
Main features
Smart automatic and connected concrete Power and Control System for standard failure testing.

PILOT PRO is the best choice for Qualtiy Control laboratories to carry out a high throughput of routine failure tests including compression, flexure and indirect tensile tests.
  • Huge boost in efficiency and error elimination: LinK-LAB – Integrated testing station solution for seamless connection and data inputs from many ancillary devices for dimensional measurement, weight, bar code, etc.
  • Automatic – time saving: test-cycle automation maximizes productivity and ensures tests are performed accurately according to pre-set methods, eliminating operator variables.
  • Highly accurate and energy saving: Our DC motor technology quietly and efficiently delivers super accurate load control at both low-speed and low-loads.
  • Intuitive, quick and simple operation: The integrated control system features an intuitive 5.1” color graphical display, which works like a tablet or smart-phone, and makes PILOT PRO quick and simple to operate.
  • Standards compliant – peace of mind: Hardware and firmware are in total compliance with all the main international concrete testing standards including ASTM C39 and EN 12390-3.
  • Multilingual functionality: The system is available in multiple languages and is fully compatible with non-Latin characters for Chinese, Cyrillic (and more).
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 specimens. 
The large testing space is ideal for performing, with the suitable accessories, splitting tests and flexural tests on concrete specimens. 
 
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 or 500/15 kN cap.:
extends the possible applications to flexural tests on cement and com­pression tests on low strength specimens. The Class 1 accuracy can be extended with special calibration procedures (see Upgrading Option and Technical Specifications).

Frames 
High rigidity solid one piece steel frame. Spherical seat allows free alignment at the initial contact with the specimen. 

Compression platens 
See table. Traceable certificate of surface hardness available on request.

PILOT PRO, Automatic power and control system 
See technical specifications.

Safety features
Includes: Max. pressure valve to avoid machine overloading; piston travel limit switch; emergency stop button;  front door and rear transparent fragment guard on the compression station. Fragment guard for flexure station is available as optional (see Accessories).
