How to Buy Compression Testing Machine ?
When it comes to buying compression testing machine people ought to make these small mistakes which costs them not just their money but also precious time of project deadline.
Six Things You Need to Know Before Buying Compression Testing Machine.
Things needs to be considered before buying compression testing machine.
Purpose of buying: simple strength analysis or elaborated analysis of structure
There are two type of testing performed using compression testing machine which is simple analysis of just compressive aspect of concrete and second is deep analysis of the structure disintegration.
In simple analysis one only applies the load of the machine until the sample fails and notes down the reading while in deep analysis one studies the graph of load vs time and applies the load as per the requirement of standard
Type of site or location
For construction and open site channel type is ideal but for the laboratory plate type is required as it’s compact and sturdy along with various protection measures.
One should know upto what capacity one is going to check for EX if your cube is of grade M45 you can’t check the strength in 1000kn or 500kn capacity machine. So knowing the maximum strength of sample plays crucial role in buying machine
Safety is the crucial part of any compression testing machine because the sample is crushed with metal platens using hydraulic force it exerts such pressure that when scattered it can be pretty dangerous that’s why in every Primetek compression testing machine we provide safety door lock mechanism and emergency cutoff button.
Accuracy of machinery affects the project the most when you are testing your sample in laboratory. Primetek compression testing machine comes with Touch LED display with resolution of 0.0001kn to give accurate result on any interval of time.
Normal or Load rate controlled.
This factor affects the whole pricing. As load rate-controlled machines are 4 times expensive than normal machine but that price seems totally outclassed in the front of the feature that the load rate control machine provides. This machine is equipped with servo hardware and able to give the speed from 0.2kn to 5.14 kn per second or as required.
