Concrete pipe tester
Concrete pipe testing machines 750 kN capacity Designed to test concrete sewer and drain pipes used in drainage works, water supply systems, irrigation systems etc. The machine is available in
50-C9602 conforming to ASTM C497
50-C9612 conforming to EN 1916
This EN version is suitable for testing round shaped pipes, cylindrical barrel shape over the full length without sockets conforming to EN 1916 Annex C, fig. C.2a. Compression tests can also be performed on cylindrical pipes with sockets, provided that you specify, at time of request, the shape and dimensions of above sockets to verify the compatibility with the loading bearers.
The difference between the two models concerns, mainly, the lower supports and the upper bearing beam. The machines do not include the elastomeric bearing strips or similar which have to be provided on site. Other machine versions are available on request.
The frame is made of structural steel and is bolted together with high strength bolts so it can be easily assembled and disassembled either for delivery or for movement from one site to another. The two upper crossbeams are raised and lowered by a motor operated winch. The upper crossbeam is then locked in position by locking pins inserted through the columns.
HYDRAULIC RAM ASSEMBLY
Consists of an alloy steel cylinder, of a piston tempered and ground, and hydraulic hoses and spherical seat.
