Standards

EN 196-1, 459-2, 1015-11, 13454-2; ASTM C109, C348, C349; BS 3892-1, 4551-1

The UTEST Semi-Automatic (Motorized) range of single testing chamber and double testing chamber compression and flexure testing machines have been designed for reliable and consistent testing of mortar samples. Thesecompression and flexure testers are the results of continuous applications and research studies to upgrade the machines with the latest technologies and conform with current standards EN 196-1, 459-2, 1015-11,  13454-2; ASTM C 109, C348, C349 and BS 3892-1, 4551-1 in terms of its technical properties taking into account client requirements by using suitable accessories. These testers also meet the requirements of CE norms for safety and health of the operator.

The UTEST Semi-Automatic cement compression and flexure testing machines allow operators who have minimal experience to perform the tests.

The UTEST Semi-Automatic cement compression and flexure testing machines consist of a very rigid two column single or double chamber frame, hydraulic powerpack and data acquisition system LPI.

Compression and flexure jigs, distance pieces, and also removable transparent front-rear safety doors (should be factory installed) should be ordered separately.

Power Pack

The UTC-4820 Motorized (Semi-Automatic) Power Pack, controlled by a pressure rate control valve, is designed to supply the required oil to the load frames for loading. The power pack can load different frames with required pace rates. A rapid approach pump is supplied as standard. The power pack is equipped with    a safety valve (maximum pressure valve) to avoid machine overloading.

Dual Stage Pump

  • Low pressure gear pump
  • High pressure durable variable output pump

On the dual stage pump, high delivery low pressure gear pump is used for rapid approach, while low delivery high pressure durable variable output pump is used for test execution. Rapid approach property of the machine shortens the time interval from the piston starts moving until the upper platen touches to the specimen and helps to save a great amount of time in case of numerous specimens are going to be tested.

Motor

  • Dual pump is driven by an AC motor
  • 220 V (110 V), 50-60 Hz single phase and 0.55 kW

Distribution Block

A distribution block is used to control the oil flow direction supplied by the dual stage pump which has the safety valve and pressure relief valve mounted upon it.

  • Safety valve (maximum pressure valve)
  • Pressure relief valve

Oil Tank

The tank (20 L capacity) includes enough oil to fill the mechanism which pushes the ram during the test. The level and oil temperature can be seen on the indicator fitted to the tank. Hydraulic motor oil number 46, must be used in the tank.

LPI

LPI Battery Operated Digital Readout Unit has been designed to use with load cells or pressure transducers on different material test applications.

  • Real time numeric display of load and load rate
  • 1 channel with two different calibration table (can be used for 2 sensors)
  • Peak hold property • Multi-point calibration • Serial port for PC or printer
  • Can operate with 2 x AA batteries • Easy preload zeroing • 7 keys keyboard

Safety Features

  • Maximum pressure valves to avoid machine overloading
  • Piston travel limit switch

Data Acquisition & PC Software

UTEST Testing Software for LPI read out unit can be used with semi-automatic concrete compression and flexural testing machines for data acquisition and reporting. This software provides data acquisition and management for compression, flexure and splitting tensile test throughout the test execution. The advanced functions for data base management provide an easy navigation of all saved data. The test results certificate includes all descriptive information. Test parameters can be set and details about the test carried out, such as names and the Company details, test type, specimen type, user info and other information required can be entered and printed out as well as the test report and graph. Also, all minor revisions can be implemented upon request. Please find information about software on page.

The Maximum horizontal clearance for placing the sample is limited by the border of the platens. Sample must be placed such that its ends will not overlap the ends of platens and it must be centered perfectly.

The suitable vertical clearance for the specimen can be adjusted using the distance pieces.
