Description:

  • ASTM & AASHTO compression testing frames for cylinders consist of a rigid welded steel walls, a loading cylinder assembly and lower and upper (spherically-seated) bearing platens.
  • The frames provide the stability needed for accurate and repeatable test results over the years of operation.
  • Any hydraulic power pack with control and read out unit and a pressure transducer for measuring the loads, can be positioned on the right-hand side of the load frame for easier accessibility, increased productivity and for safer operations.
  • All frames have a single acting up stroking ram and also have front and rear protective doors and limit switch for piston stroke for safety.
  • The diameter of the pistons is designed to work with the load capacity.
  • The lower bearing platens are provided with concentric centring line/s
  • UTC-4680 and UTC-4682 Pedestals that are made of steel to facilitate the user’s placement of specimens in the frames for compression test should be ordered separately.
  • See the below tables for supplied items with the frames
