Used to determine the strain and deformation characteristics of concrete specimens.
- For cylinder 150 mm and 160 mm, with dial 0.001 mm sensitivity.
- For Cube , with dial 0.001 mm sensitivity.
Compressometer is one of the most used products during the concrete test. When deformation occurs, these products conduct experiments at the point that deformation occurs in different ways and performs the measurements successfully.
These products, which are the most preferred because they have functional features within the scope of concrete testing device, are used to detect deformations that may occur on concrete samples, and they are designed differently depending on whether the samples are cylindrical or cube-shaped.
These products, which have various models, are also produced in accordance with ASTM C469 and UNI 6556 standards within the framework of international standards. In particular, the fact that these products are produced in accordance with international standards means that they have both functional and reliable use.
Occupational accidents that may occur, in particular, are prevented to a great extent by the reliable systems of the devices, and thus, it is ensured that the experiments performed are both safer and closer to reality.
Especially during the testing of building materials, it is important that the most realistic results emerge, and that the structures in which these products will be used later are robust. It is not possible to use concrete, which causes wear or deformation due to a simple erosion, in heavy structures. Thus, the durability of the concrete material to be used is determined by the compressometer.
What are the Compressometer Features?
These products, which have more than one model within the scope of their compressometer features, are designed in the form of cylinders. Specially designed for 150 mm x 160 mm cylindrical specimens, these products have more variety than cube-shaped models. This model also has a 0.001mm sensitivity indicator.
Cube compressor models designed for 150 mm x 150 mm cube samples have a sensitivity indicator of 0.001 mm, just like the cylindrical models.
What Does a Compressometer Do?
Compressometer is a product used for pressure testing. The deformations that occur within the scope of the experiment performed on different samples are determined, thus it is determined how the samples are resistant to pressure.
Thus, all kinds of deformations, negative features or damages are easily detected by this product and it is determined whether it will be used while being used in the building.
In addition, it determines the tensile characteristics of the samples obtained from concrete in a short time and comes up as a very functional product. Thanks to the presence of both semi-automatic and automatic power units, it is possible for people to use the products easily and to reach the test results in a short time.
The sample is placed in the middle of the product to prevent the sample from slipping during its use, and it is called fixed by being compressed from both the top and the bottom at the same time.
These products, which are designed in different models for both tube and cylinder samples, give results in a short time, and the results are recorded by transferring them directly to the computer thanks to the special data unit.
