The Model TO-317E-DG Semi-Automatic Concrete Compression Tester has a maximum testing capacity of 450,000lbf or 2000kN. This machine is primarily designed for testing 4in and 6in (100mm and 150mm) concrete cubes and 4in and 6in (100mm and 150mm) diameter concrete cylinders.
The Tinius Olsen DG Series of digital compression testers features highly robust frames for exceptional stability when testing concrete cylinders or cubes. These compact testers
are made up of three core pieces: the heavy duty load frame, hydraulic pump, and control and display systems.
The large lower bearing block includes a bellows to prevent leaks caused by dust and debris getting into the loading piston. The other advantage of the large bearing block is that it allows for a 12in horizontal entrance opening and plenty of ready access for loading and removing specimens. Additionally, an optional chute enables quick removal of completed specimens and rapid cleaning of the test area.
This series also includes a rapid change platen system to quickly and easily change accessories, switching between cylinder, block, cube and beam specimen testing.
