The apparatus consists of a load frame 60 kN cap. with a hydraulic loading ram actuated by a hand pump. The frame is adjustable for testing samples up to 102 mm dia. A ruler assembled on the frame allows for direct measurement of the distance D between the conical platens before and after the test. The compression load is measured by a pressure transducer with an advanced digital display unit assuring the best accuracy and resistance to the failure shocks. The machine, fit with the accessory NG-D0550/D5, can also be used for compression tests on small cores or cylindrical specimens. The apparatus is contained in an easily transportable plastic case.
