Digital point load tester
Used to determine the strength values of a rock specimen both in the field and in the laboratory.
It consists of a load frame for applying loads up to 55 KN, on which a manual hydraulic jack is mounted.
The instrument accepts core specimens up to 4″(101,6 mm) diameter which are loaded by two coneshaped points.
A graduated scale indicates the distance between the conical points.
The applied load is measured by a pressure transducer with a digital display unit range 0-56kN, 65.000 divisions, 0,001 kN resolution, accuracy: ± 1%.
The strength index (IS) is got by the formula P : D2 where P is the strength and D the space between the two conical points.
Supplied complete with wooden carrying case, goggles, accessories.
Dimensions: 400x530x720 mm.
Weight: 25 Kg
