The Accu-Tek Touch 250 Auto has a touch-screen display which improves ease of use and a capacity of 250,000 lbf., and is delivered ready for testing 6" x 12" cylinders. However, a rapid-change platen system means that the operator can quickly and easily mount a wide range of optional accessories to the upper crosshead for cylinder, cube, and beam testing including 2" cubes, 4" x 8" cylinders and beams. The machine is also able to test mortar cubes and concrete beams to ASTM C109 and C78.
Automatic sample loading is provided by a closed-loop microprocessor controlled hydraulic system, with automatic stress calculation. All test results come complete with the machine serial number, and load vs. time is plotted in real-time; demonstrating full compliance with the testing standard. Providing full traceability, this data can be stored for later use or for detailed analysis of the concrete production.
