For determining strength values of rock specimens in the field and in the laboratory.
It consists of a load frame for applying loads of up to 55 KN on which a manual hydraulic jack is mounted.
The tool accepts core samples up to 4 inches (101.6 mm) in diameter
The applied load is measured by a load cell with a digital display unit.
Weight: 25 Kg
Color standard, 5 plexiglass scales mounted on plastic brackets.
Digital Point Loading Tester
The Digital Point Loading Tester is a device used in the laboratory or in the field to easily determine the strength of a rock, that is, its strength values. Thanks to this device, which has a system with a hydraulic jack and whose jack can apply a load of up to 55 kN on the rock, it is possible to determine how durable the rock is and how long it can withstand by measuring the rock samples by point loading.
Digital Point Loading Tester Features
The Digital Point Loading Tester, presented to you by Argon Test, is used to determine the strength of the rocks in the field. The Digital Point Loading Tester features are as follows;
This device can take rock samples up to 4″ i.e. 101.6 mm.
This device has a load frame, pressure transducer, digital readout unit and hydraulic loading jack.
Its weight is about 25 Kg.
Its jack can apply a load of up to 55 kN.
There is a ruler on the body and with this ruler the sample size before and after the test can be compared.
The applied load is detected by the pressure sensor and then this application appears numerically on the digital screen.
Where is the Digital Point Loading Tester Used?
Where is the Digital Point Loading Tester used? In response to your question; While this device is applied to test aggregates such as stone pieces, sand, gravel, especially in construction and land areas, its main use is on rocks and is used to measure the strength of rocks in the field.
