The UTEST Semi-Automatic cement compression and flexure testing machines consist of a very rigid two column single or double chamber frame, hydraulic powerpack and data acquisition system LPI.UTCM-6421

Accessories such as compression and flexure jigs and distance pieces should be ordered separately.

Power Pack

The UTC-4820 Motorized (Semi-Automatic) Power Pack is controlled by a pressure rate control valve and is used to supply the required oil to the load frames for loading. The power pack can load different frames with required pace rates. A rapid approach pump is supplied as standard. To ensure the machine doesn't overload, the power pack includes a safety valve (maximum pressure valve).

Dual Stage Pump

  • Low pressure gear pump
  • High pressure durable variable output pump

On the dual stage pump, high delivery low pressure gear pump is used for rapid approach, while low delivery high pressure durable variable output pump is used for test execution. Rapid approach property of the machine shortens the time interval from the piston starts moving until the upper platen touches to the specimen and helps to save a great amount of time in case of numerous specimens are going to be tested.

Motor

  • Dual pump is driven by an AC motor
  • 220 V (110 V), 50-60 Hz single phase and 0.55 kW

Distribution Block

The dual stage pump has the safety valve and pressure relief valve attached to it, and a distribution block is used to control the oil flow direction supplied by it.

  • Safety valve (maximum pressure valve)
  • Pressure relief valve8-OIL-TANK

Oil Tank

The tank (20 L capacity) includes enough oil to fill the mechanism which pushes the ram during the test. The indicator on the tank displays the level of oil and the oil temperature. Hydraulic motor oil number 46 must be used in the tank.

  • Real time numeric display of load and load rate
  • 1 channel with two different calibration table (can be used for 2 sensors)

Safety Features

  • Maximum pressure valves to avoid machine overloading
  • Piston travel limit switch

Data Acquisition & PC Software

UTEST Testing Software for LPI read out unit can be used with semi-automatic concrete compression and flexural testing machines for data acquisition and reporting. This software provides data acquisition and management for compression, flexure and splitting tensile test throughout the test execution. The advanced functions for data base management provide an easy navigation of all saved data. The test results certificate includes all descriptive information. Test parameters can be set and details about the test carried out, such as names and the Company details, test type, specimen type, user info and other information required can be entered and printed out as well as the test report and graph. Also, all minor revisions can be implemented upon request. Please find information about software on page.

Automatic Cement Compression and Flexure Testing Machines1-UTCM-6331

UTCM-6331

The UTEST Automatic range of single testing chamber and double testing chamber compression and flexure testing machines have been designed for reliable and consistent testing of mortar samples. These compression and flexure testers conform to the current standards EN 196-1, 459-2, 1015-11, 13454- 2; ASTM C 109, C348, C349 and BS 3892-1, 4551-1 in terms of its technical properties taking into account client requirements by using suitable accessories. These machines also meet the requirements of CE norms for safety and health of the operator.

Accessories such as compression and flexure jigs and distance pieces should be ordered separately.

The UTEST Automatic Cement Compression and Flexure Testing machines have been designed so that inexperienced users can operate them and perform the tests easily and safely. Once the machine has been turned on and the specimen is positioned and centered by the help of centering apparatus, the only required operations are:

  • Setting test parameters, including pace rate  (only required when the specimen type is changed.)
  • Choosing the compression or flexure frame by using the changeover valve.
  • 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 automatic cement compression and flexure testing machines consist of very rigid two column single or double chamber frames, automatic hydraulic power pack with data acquisition and control system BC 100.

Power Pack3-POWER-PACK-1

UTC-4830 Automatic Hydraulic Power Pack, dual stage which is controlled by BC 100 is designed to supply the required oil to the load frames for loading. The power pack is extremely silent, and can load the specimen between 50N/sec to 2.4kN/sec with an accuracy of ±5%. A rapid approach pump is supplied as standard. To ensure the machine does not overload, a safety valve is used.

Motor

The motor which drives the dual pump is an AC motor, 380 V, 50-60 Hz, 3 phase, 1 hp and 0.75 kW and it is controlled by Omron J7 motor inverter. The variation in the oil flow is executed with the variation of the rotation speed of the motor.

Distribution Block

A distribution block is used to control the oil flow direction supplied by the dual stage pump, the following parts are fitted to the distribution block:

  • Solenoid valve
  • Safety valve (maximum pressure valve)
  • Transducer
  • Low pressure gear pump
  • High pressure radial piston pump

Dual Stage Pump5-DUAL-STAGE-PUMP

The dual stage pump is formed by two groups;

  1. Low pressure gear pump
  2. High pressure radial piston pump.

On the dual stage pump, a high delivery, low pressure gear pump is used for rapid approach, while a low delivery, high pressure radial piston pump is used for test execution. The Rapid approach facility shortens the time interval from piston start until the upper platen touches to the specimen. This excellent feature helps to save a lot of time when a large number of specimens are going to be tested.

Oil Tank

The tank includes enough oil to fill the mechanism which pushes the ram during the test. The level and oil temperature can be seen on the indicator fitted to the tank. It has 20 L capacity. Hydraulic motor oil, number 46, must be used.

BC 100 Unit9-BC100

BC100 TFT unit is designed to control the machine and processing of data from load-cells and pressure transducers which are fitted to the machine.

All the operations of BC100 are controlled from the front panel consisting of a 800x480 pixel 65535 color resistive touch screen display and function keys 2 analogue channels are provided for load-cells or pressure transducers.

BC100 TFT 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. The BC100 digital graphic display is able to draw real-time "Load vs. Time", or "Stress vs. Time" graphics.
