Image shows 2000kN Cube and Cylinder Compression Machine with Comtest digital readout.
Designed to test blocks up to 410mm long x 250mm x 250mm and 100mm and 100mm & 150mm cubes
  • Compact Welded steel load frame with a high degree of mechanical stability
  • Ball-seated upper platen 300mm diameter and rail mounted block platen 445mm x 250mm x 75mm thick
  • Lower platen 75mm thick, positively located on the loading ram
  • Loading ram with cover to prevent debris damaging it during testing and a limit switch to prevent it from exceeding the maximum limit of travel
  • Front guard, hinged for ease of access
  • Supplied with block platen handling system which consists of a rail that allows the top block platen to be slid out and supported at the back of the machine, enabling cube testing to be carried out.


Comtest Digital Readout - for accuracy of results and simplified operation Microprocessor based electronics provide:
  • Data monitoring and capture of load signals for:
  • Compression range 0 to 2000kN & 3000kN Flexural range 000.00 to 100.00 kN
  • 2 transducers ports for up to 2 frames or low load work in a standard frame
  • Calculation of stress upon failure
  • Transducer configuration, calibration and linearisation facilities for Compression and Flexural input ranges.
  • Data logging: up to 100 test results, time stamped and with all relevant test data results. RS232 Serial communications port for printing test results information or downloading to a PC. 4 row x 20 column LCD screen, with LED back light
  • 16-key pad for set up and usage
  • Built in battery backed real-time calendar/clock
All data-entry and editing functions are available via the 16-key membrane keypad on the front of the digital readout unit.
