• 1560 kN/350 000 lbf capacity
• Calibration accuracy to BS EN ISO 7500-1; ASTM E4;
• Efficient hydraulic power packs
• Economic machines ideal for site use
The Compact 1500 range of compression machines has been designed to meet the need for a simple, economic and reliable means of testing concrete.
The dimensions of the frame allow the testing of cylinders up to 320 mm long x 160 mm diameter, and cubes 150 or 100 mm square. Kerbs and flagstones may also be tested on the ADR machine as well as 150 mm and 100 mm square section beams to ASTM C78, using the optional 100 kN flexural frames which are connected to the power pack.
The ADR digital readout is a microprocessor controlled instrument, which is fitted as standard to all digital machines in the range. Load can be displayed in kN, lbf or kgf as selected by the operator.
Incorporating the ADR Touch digital readout, the machines are designed to test cubes and cylinders in accordance with most International Standards. Supplied fitted for cylinder testing with safety gates. When used for cube testing appropriate distance pieces according to the size of specimen to be tested are required and must be ordered separately.
