Standards

ASTM C39; AASHTO T22; ISO EN 7500

The UTEST Automatic range of 600 kN and 1500 kN capacity compression testing machines have been designed for reliable and consistent testing of a wide range of specimens. These compression testers are manufactured as a result of continuous research studies to upgrade the machines with the latest technologies to conform to the current standards ASTM C39; AASHTO T22; ISO EN 7500 in terms of its technical properties taking into account the client requirements. These machines also meet the requirements of CE norms with respect to the health and safety of the operator. Their user-friendly design enables an inexperienced operator to perform the tests.

Once the machine has been switched on and the specimen is positioned required operations are

  • Setting the test parameters (pace rate needs to be adjusted only when the specimen type is changed)
  • Pressing the START button on the control unit
  • The machine automatically starts the rapid approach, when the specimen touches the upper platen the rapid approach is ended and starts loading at the pace rate that selected by user and stops once the specimen fails.
  • Automatically saves the test parameters and the test results.

Exceeding of the ASTM C-39 standard provisions (starts with the 10% of the machine capacity), the UTC-4031 and UTC-4131 are supplied in Class 1 starting from 50 kN. This unique performance enables the machines to be used for a considerable number of applications including:

  • Early age compression strength tests
  • Flexural tests by using proper accessories
  • Mortar (Cement) compression tests by using proper accessories
  • Core with low diameter compression tests

The compression machines consist of a heavy duty welded frame, automatic hydraulic power pack with data acquisition and control system BC 100.

UTC-4031 (600 kN) Testing Machine is supplied complete with;

  • Ø 165x90 mm, Ø 165x50 mm, Ø 165x30 mm and Ø 165x15 mm distance pieces
  • UTC-4511 Upper Platen (with ball seating assembly) Ø165 mm, Lower Platen Ø165 mm.

UTC-4510 upper and lower platen sets can also be used with UTC-4031 testing machine.

UTC-4131 (1500 kN) Compression Testing Machines is supplied complete with;

  • Ø 165x90 mm, Ø 165x50 mm, 2 pcs. Ø 165x30 mm and Ø 165x15 mm distance pieces
  • UTC-4512 Upper Platen (with ball seating assembly) Ø216 mm, Lower Platen Ø216 mm.

UTC-4510, UTC-4511 and UTC-4515 upper and lower platen sets can also be used with UTC-4131 testing machine.

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

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

110 V, 50 Hz models are available upon request. The only difference is the input voltage.
