The Model TO-315E-FA Fully Automatic Concrete Compression Tester has a maximum testing capacity of 338,000lbf or 1500kN. This machine is primarily designed for testing 4 and 6in (100 and 150mm) concrete cubes and 4 and 6in (100 and 150mm) diameter concrete cylinders.
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.
