Automatic Compression Testing Machines

Clear

Automatic range of compression testing machines have been designed for reliable and consistent testing of a wide range of specimens. These compression testers are the results of continuous research to upgrade the testing machines with the latest technologies to conform to the latest standards EN 12390-3, EN 12390- 4, BS 1881 and ASTM C39 in terms of its technical properties taking into account client requirements. These also meet the requirements of CE norms for the health and safety of the operator.
Tests can be performed by either on BC 100 Unit or on a computer with using free Software. The advantages of performing tests on computer with using our Software, such as reporting, graphical output, etc.. The Automatic range of compression testing machines allow inexperienced operators to perform the test. Once the machine has been switched on and the specimen is positioned and centered by the help of centering apparatus, the only required operations are:

  • Setting test parameters, including pace rate (only required when the specimen type is changed)
  • Pressing the START button on the control unit
  • The machine automatically starts the rapid approach, when the specimen touches the upper platen the rapid approach is ended and starts loading at the pace rate that selected by user and stops once the specimen fails
  • Automatically saves the test parameters and test results

All models are supplied in Class 1 starting from 10% of the full range as standard EN 12390-3, 12390-4, BS 1881 and ASTM C39. Our range of Semi-Automatic and Automatic Machines can be upgraded with option TC-0210 special calibration Class 1 starting from 1% of the full range. This exceptional performance enables the machines to be used for a considerable number of applications including:

  • Early age ( 2 or 3 days ) compression strength tests
  • Flexural and splitting tests by using proper accessories
  • Mortar (Cement) compression tests by using proper accessories
  • Core testing with TC-0210

The compression machines consist of a heavy duty welded frame, automatic hydraulic power pack with data acquisition and control system BC 100.

Safety Features

  • Maximum pressure valves to avoid machine overloading
  • Piston travel limit switch
  • Emergency stop button
  • Front and rear transparent durable plexiglas guards
  • Software controlled maximum load value
