UTC-4735 3000 kN (670000 lbf) Compression Testing Frame for Blocks and Cylinders, ASTM
UTC-4528 Upper Bearing Platens Replacement Equipment for UTC-4725 and UTC-4735
UTC-4682 Pedestal for 2000 kN (450000 lbf) and 3000 kN (670000 lbf) Compression Testing Frames with Welded Wall

Description:

  • ASTM & AASHTO compression testing frames for blocks and 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 centring line/s
  • UTC-4528 Upper bearing platens replacement equipment is used by the user for changing the upper bearing platens depending on whether the specimen to be tested is a block or cylinder.
  • UTC-4682 Pedestal that is made of steel to facilitate the user’s placement of specimens in the frames for compression test should be ordered separately.
  • See the below table for supplied items with the frames.
  • (*) Depending on the type of specimen to be tested, the bearing platens set can be easily switched with other bearing platens by users with the help of UTC-4525
