ASTM-AASHTO standalone frames for testing cylinders
50-A12Z00, 50-A22Z00 and 50-A32Z00, 1500kN (335 klbf), 2000kN (450 klbf) and 3000kN (660klbf) cap, frames consist of a rigid welded steel structure, with spherical seat and platens 165 mm dia., suitable for testing cylinders from dia. 4”x8” to 6”x12” as prescribed by ASTM C39 standard. The vertical clearance allows the testing of 6”x12” cylinders with capping retainers conforming to ASTM C1231. Supplied complete withpressure transducer, flexible plastic fragment guards and connection kit for separate control console. Pedestal and ridig front door not included, see Accessories.
50-A42Z00 and 50-A52Z00 frames, 2000 and 3000 kN cap., further to the performance above mentioned, feature a high stiffness structure which is more suitable for central and research laboratories. Supplied complete with pressure transducer, connection kit for separate control console and rigid front door. Pedestal not included, see Accessories.
ASTM-AASHTO standalone frames for testing blocks and cylinders
Models 50-A29Z00 2000kN (450klbf) cap. and 50-A39Z00 3000kN (660klbf) cap. are compression frames completely reversible, fitted with Premium Heavy Duty spherical seat and rectangular platens for testing blocks conforming to ASTM C140.
Using the innovative update 50-A29/CYL the seat-upper platen assembly for blocks can be easily switched with the other one for cylinders so that we really have a multi-testing unit.
