Description:

  • UTC-6727, UTC-6737, UTC-6748 and UTC-6758 compression testing frames with four columns for cubes and cylinders consist of a loading cylinder assembly, lower and upper (spherically-seated) loading platens. acc. to EN standards.
  • EN four column compression testing frames provides the stability needed for accurate and repeatable test results over the years of operation.
  • The frames are supplied with factory calibration certificate for force transfer stability and the self-alignment of the upper loading platen conforming to EN 12390-4.
  • 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 their load capacities.
  • There is a low friction coaxial PTFE seal between the cylinder and the piston fitted to the cylinder.
  • The lower loading platens are provided with centring lines and fixture for centring specimens.
  • UTC-4684 and UT-4686 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 table for supplied items with the frames.
