Point Load lndex Tester
Model No. : PIT-PL-010
Point Load lndex Tester is used for determining the Diametral Point Load Strength lndex of rock cores and irregular lumps which can be tested without any treatment. The Point Load Test is primarily an lndex Test for strength classification of rock materials. This instrument is mainly intended for field measurements on rock specimen but it can also be used in the laboratory. The results of the test may also be used to predict the uniaxial compressive strength of rock from correlations. The apparatus is light and portable. lt can be used in the laboratory as well as in the field.
The equipment consist of the following replaceable parts:
- Load Gauge 0 – 100kN x 0.50kN
- Conical Loading Platens
- Loading Frame fitted with Hydraulic Jack, capacity 100kN & Hand pump
- Load Gauge 0 – 25kN x 0.25kN (For Analogue Model)
