The Model TO-320E-FA Fully Automatic Concrete Compression Tester has a maximum testing capacity of 675,000lbf or 3000kN. This machine is primarily designed for testing 6in and 12in (150mm and 300mm) concrete cubes, and concrete cylinders that are 12in (300mm) tall with a 12in (300mm) diameter.
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.
