Standard

EN 1338, 1339, 1340, 12390-5, 12390-6; BS 1881; ASTM C78, C293, C496

The UTEST Automatic range of 100 kN, 300 kN and 600 kN  capacity flexure testing machines have been designed for reliable and consist­ent testing of flexural test on standard concrete beams, concrete or natural stone kerbs, concrete paving flags, and natural stone slabs and tensile splitting test of concrete paving blocks.  These flexure testing machines are the result of continuous research to upgrade the testing machines with latest technologies to conform to the latest standards EN 12390-5, EN 12390- 6, EN 1338, EN 1340, BS 1881, ASTM C78, C293 and C496 in terms of its technical properties taking into account client requirements. These also meet the requirements of CE norms for health and safety of the operator.

Tests can be performed by either on U-Touch PRO Control 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.

The UTEST Automatic range of 200 kN, 300 kN and 600 kN capac­ity flexure testing machines allow inexperienced to perform the test. Once the machine is switched on and specimen is placed, then 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; switches the test speed after 1% of the load capacity of the machine and stops once the specimen failure.
  • Automatically saves the test parameters and test results.

The UTEST range of Flexural Machines have the accuracy of Class 1 start­ing from 2% of the full capacity.

The Machines consist of a rigid steel frame and hydraulic power pack with U-Touch PRO Control Unit(see table).The software (USOFT-4830.FPR) is provided free of charge with the machines.

UTEST Flexural Machine UTC-5610.FPR and UTC-5630.FPR are designed to allow easy and practical front loading of the specimens.The equipment to place the specimens in the frame which is similar to the picture shown below should be ordered separately seperately for UTC-5660.FPR.

 

The test assemblies such as;

  • Flexture strengt test of concrete beam(UTC-5501), kerb( UTC-5502) and flagstone(UTC-5504),
  • Indirect tensile strengt test of paving block (UTC-0355 and UTC-5510)),
  • Splitting tensile strengt test of concrete cubes (UTC-0360)and cylinders (UTC-0350),
  • Compression strengt test of any condtruction material ( UTM-8516 and distance pieces  UTC-4630, UTC-4631, UTC-4633 and UTC-4634)

should be ordered separately

 

The main characteristics are:

  • Closed loop control with automatic test procedure
  • Supplied with factory calibration certificate for load measurement
  • Can perform the test with load control       
  • Tests automatically with closed loop control
  • The tests can be performed by controlling the machine either on U-Touch PRO control unit (UTC-4930.FPR) or on a computer with using free UTEST Software (USOFT-4830.FPR) which is provided free of charge with the machines.
  • Free of charge Utest software
  • Load measurment with a loadcell
  • Welded steel frame

 

U-Touch PRO Control Unit 

U-Touch PRO Control Unit UTC-4930.FPR is designed to perform automatically compression, flexure and splitting tensile strength tests of construction materials such as concrete, cement mortar, masonary units/blocks by controlling the Utest automatic compression / flexure testing machines.

All the operations of U-Touch PRO are controlled from the front panel touch screen display.

U-Touch PRO Control Unit has easy to use menu options. It displays all menu option listings simultaneously, allowing the operator to access the required option in a seemless manner to activate the option or enter a numeric value to set the test parameters. Digital graphic display is able to draw real-time "Load vs. Time", or "Stress vs. Time" graphics

PLEASE see the pages of “U-Touch PRO Control Unit UTC-4930.FPR” for details of the properties

UTEST Software for Automatic Compression / Flexure Testing Machines

UTEST software USOFT-4830.FPR provides to perform automatically compression, flexure and splitting tensile strength tests of construction materials such as concrete, cement mortar, masonary units/blocks by controlling the Utest automatic compression / flexure testing machines.

The advantages of performing tests on computer with using UTEST Software, such as reporting, graphical output, etc. can be seen in detail at the USOFT-4930.FPR (The UTEST Software for Automatic Compression / Flexure Testing Machines with UTC-4830FPR Hydrolic Power Pack) pages.

 

Optional Additional Frame

For compression and especially flexural testing, additionally second testing frame should be ordered separately.

In this case, the machines provide load control of two seperate testing frames with closed-loop P.I.D control with automatic test procedure by using selecting test channel and additional selector valve.

 

Safety Features

  • Maximum pressure valves to avoid machine overloading
  • Piston travel limit switch
  • Emergency stop button
  • Software controlled maximum load value
