Four column high stiffness welded frame tested for stability to EN 12390-4. 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.
See table. Traceable certificate of surface hardness available on request.
automax, fully computerized Super-Automatic power and control system
Dual stage pump, centrifugal for fast approach and multi-piston for loading, DC motor, ES Energy Saving technology electronic valves for automatic loading/unloading and frame selection via display/software.
Includes: Max. pressure valve to avoid machine overloading; piston travel limit switch; emergency stop button; front door and rear transparent fragment guard.
Verification of force transfer
The conformity of the compression tester to the EN 12390-4 requirements in terms of stability (force transfer) is performed by the verification of the self-alignment of machine components and the restraint on movement of the upper platen. The compliance of all our EN testers to these stringent requirements is precisely verified using specific apparatus (82-E0105/1 and 82-P0804/E). An incorrect load application may cause premature sample failure and, consequently the resultant strength could be significantly lower than the true resistance.
