Two versions are available:
single compression station, 500 kN or 600 kN cap.:
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.
Frames and compression platens
High rigidity: solid one piece steel frame. Spherical seat allows free alignment at the initial contact with the specimen. For compression platens see Technical Specifications. Pedestal not included. See accessories.
Machine/Frames precision Class. EN 12390-4, ASTM E74
All frames, when connected to a suitable control console, are supplied calibrated to Class 1 starting from 10% of load scale as specified in the Technical Specifications table. By special calibration procedures, it is possible to extend Class 1 load measurement accuracy (see Upgrading Option and Technical Specifications).
All models includes: max. pressure valve to avoid machine overloading; piston travel limit switch; front door and rear transparent fragment guard on the compression station. Fragment guard for flexure station is available as optional (see Accessories).
Connection to control consoles
The 15 kN load piston of the double station models, when connected to PILOT and AUTOMAX automatic Control Systems, requires a pressure regulator which, however, is not necessary for connection to Automax E Modulus, MCC and Advantest 9 consoles. See Upgrading options.
