These machines, featuring a very rigid four columns frame, have been designed for the testing of the cement prism either in compression or in flexure.
Three versions are available:
All models can be fitted with pressure transducer/s for load measurement (65-L27C0x, 65-L28C0x, 65-L18C0x) or with high accuracy load cell/s (65-L27C1x, 65-L28C1x, 65-L18C1x).
Models fitted with compression platens 165 mm dia. (L28Cxx,L18Cxx) have a vertical span of 200 mm hence can house all standard accessories for cement and mortar testing (see accessories) and furthermore can be used to test other specimens directly on the standard compression platens adjusting, if necessary, the vertical daylight, with the suitable distance pieces (see accessories). Compression platens can be supplied complete with Platen surface hardness certificate. See upgrading options.
Pilot, Automatic power and control system
Dual stage pump, centrifugal for fast approach and multi-piston for loading, DC motor, ES Energy Saving technology to reduce the power consumption and ensure silent operation. For detailed information see
132,000 points effective resolution, three channels, touch screen graphic display 240x128 pixel, sampling rate 50/sec, large storing capacity on USB pen drive, test data downloadable to PC, Ethernet port, real time management software (optional, see accessories 82-SW/DM DATAMANAGER)
Simultaneous display of load-specific load, actual load rate and load/time graph; LAN connection to PC; advanced memory management; multi coefficient calibration.
Recording facility of up to 10 test profiles for each channel including type of test (e.g. compression, flexural, indirect tensile), specimen size and shape, load rate, standard in use and other general information. Each one of the recorded test profile can be recalled automatically to save time
Includes: Max. pressure valve to avoid machine overloading; piston travel limit switch; emergency stop button; front door and rear transparent fragment guard on request, see Upgrading Options.
300kN compression testers
300kN/15kN compression testers
The PILOT compression testers represent the more sophisticated and advanced evolution of the usual compression testers. This new and advanced system satisfies, first of all, the requirements for the automatic accurate and constant load rate application conforming to standards. The test cycle with closed loop digital feedback is automatically performed by simply pressing the start button. The other important innovation concern the “ES technology” which features the accurate oil flow control with no oil dispersion, silent operation, cold oil temperature and, finally, low energy consumption saving over the 30% energy compared to traditional systems.
The automatic test procedure, once the specimen has been positioned and centered and the machine switched on is:
Second frame facility
Upgrading the Pilot System for a second frame connection and control (except 4000kN and 5000kN models). Frame selection via manual lever (only for single chamber compression testers model 65-L18xxx)
Graphic printer (To be factory installed)
Safety fragment guard
Fragment guard locking switch.
Platens surface hardness certificate
Special calibration procedures
