Description

This test is performed for measuring the shrinkage of cylindrical specimens under constant loads at different time intervals. The apparatus consists of a load frame designed to apply and maintain the required load on the specimen. The initial compression is applied by a portable hydraulic jack. The load maintaining element is a series of springs preloaded by the hydraulic jack.

The apparatus is supplied complete with hand pump, two 200 mm diameter precision gauges (one permanently connected, the other for loading) and a hydraulic jack.
The typical application of this apparatus is for research purposes.
We are at your disposal for all information you may need.
