Compliance With Following International Standards EN 12390-4, ASTM C39, AASHTO T22, IS : 14858 (2000)
Automatic Test Execution Once the machine has been switched on, the specimen positioned and centered, the only required operations are:
· Set test parameters - including load rate · Press the start button · The machine automatically starts the rapid approach; switches to the test speed once the specimen comes into contact with the upper platen; automatically release the pressure upon specimen failure · Save the test including data results and load-time graph (Optional) · The test execution conforming to Standards can be easily proved. · Working on 240V, 50-60Hz, single phase. · Dual stage pump assuring fast piston approach and precise test execution · Test execution conforming to EN 12390-4, ASTM C39, AASHTO T22 · Controllable pace rate from 1 KN/Sec to 10 KN/Sec. · Inbuilt graph in the touch screen display. · Auto stop and auto release after completion of each test. · Accuracy Class 1 (EN) and Class A (ASTM) starting from 10% of full scale. · Soft platen-to-specimen contact and smooth load rate control from the very beginning of the ramp · Allow remote verification of settings and performances. For easy debugging of unexpected malfunctions. Complete IP based controller.
Frame · Four column high stiffness welded frame tested for stability. · Heavy duty spherical seat in lubricating oil bath, allowing initial free alignment at the initial contact with the specimen and automatic jamming up to the end of test.
Compression platens · Series TM-42DA fitted with 240 mm diameter platens, which are suitable for testing cylinders up to dia. 100 x 200 mm, 150 x 200 mm and cubes up to 150 mm. · Surface hardness of platen is 55 HRC, flatness tolerance 0.03 mm. Traceable certificate of surface hardness available on request. · Attachment for Paver block testing is available at extra cost.
