UTEST Automatic range of 2000 kN and 3000 kN capacity com­pression testing machines have been designed for reliable and consistent testing of a wide range of specimens. These compression testers are the results of continu­ous research to upgrade the testing machines with the latest technologies to conform to the latest standards EN 12390-3, 12390- 4, BS 1881 and ASTM C39 in terms of its technical properties taking into account client requirements. These also meet the requirements of CE norms for the safety and health of the operator.

Tests can be performed by either on BC 100 Unit or on a computer with using free UTEST Software. The advantages of performing tests on  computer with using UTEST Software, such as reporting, graphical output, etc., can be seen at pages 155 and 156.

The UTEST Automatic range of 2000 kN and 3000 kN capacity compression testing machines allow inexperienced operators to perform the test. Once the machine has been switched on and the specimen is positioned and centered by the help of centering apparatus, the only required operations are;

  • Setting test parameters, including pace rate (only required 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 test results

Exceeding of the ASTM C-39 standard provisions (starts with the 10% of the machine capacity), the UTC-4231, UTC-4331, UTC-6231 and UTC-6331 are supplied in Class 1 starting from 50 kN. This exceptional 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-4231 and UTC-4331 Testing Machine is supplied complete with;

  • Ø 205x90 mm, Ø 205x50 mm and Ø 205x30 mm distance pieces
  • UTC-4513 Upper Platen (with ball seating assembly) Ø300 mm, Lower Platen Ø300 mm.

UTC-4510, UTC-4511, UTC-4512 and UTC-4515 upper and lower platen sets can also be used with UTC-4231 and UTC-4331 testing machines.

UTC-6231 and UTC-6331 Compression Testing Machines are supplied complete with;

  • Ø 165x90 mm, Ø 165x50 mm and 2 pcs. Ø 165x30 mm distance pieces
  • UTC-4511 Upper Platen (with ball seating assembly) Ø165 mm, Lower Platen Ø165 mm.

UTC-4510, UTC-4512 and UTC-4515 upper and lower platen sets can also be used with UTC-6231 and UTC-6331 Compression Testing Machines.

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 centred 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.
