AUTOMATIC CONCRETE COMPRESSION TESTING MACHINES, COLUMN TYPE
STANDARDS: EN 12390-3, 12390-4; BS 1881, ASTM C39
The LIYA Automatic range of 2000 kN and 3000 kN capacity compression testing machines have been designed for reliable and consistent testing of a wide range of specimens. Machines confirms all EN, ASTM and BS standards written above. These also meet the requirements of CE norms for the safety and health of the operator.
Testing machines are supplied with EN compression platens as standard. Machines also comply with the ASTM C39 standard when used together with suitable platens.
Tests can be performed by either Digital Readout Unit or on a computer with using free Software.
The Automatic Compression Testing Machines allow inexperienced operators to perform the tests. 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.
