The Model TO-302E-FA Fully Automatic Concrete Compression Tester has a maximum testing capacity of 10,000lbf or 50kN. This machine is primarily designed for the testing of 2in (50mm) and 70.6mm concrete cubes.
The FA Series features highly robust frames for exceptional stability when testing concrete cylinders or cubes. These compact testers have 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 this large bearing block is that it allows for a large front entrance opening and plenty of ready access for loading and removing specimens. Additionally the machines offer an optional chute for quick removal of completed specimens and 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.
The interlocked safety doors on the front and back of the machine prevent the possibility of injury during the test, and a chute is secured to the back of the machine so that once the
test is complete, debris can be simply pushed or brushed out. An optional stand is also available so that these operations can be performed at a safe and comfortable work height.
