1000 kN capacity Concrete Pipe Testing Machines are designed for the Peak Load Tests on Sewer and Drain Pipes, Concrete Pipes, Fittings, Cones on from 200 mm up to 3700 mm (outer diameters) pipes. Can be used for concrete pipes with a length up to 3000 mm.
600 kN capacity Concrete Pipe Testing Machines are designed for the Peak Load Tests on Sewer and Drain Pipes, Concrete Pipes, Fittings, Cones on from 200 mm up to 2000 mm (outer diameters) pipes. Can be used for concrete pipes with a length up to 2000 mm.
Please contact with us for diﬀerent dimensions and capacity of Concrete Pipe Testing Machines.
Concrete Pipe Testing Machines consist of;
• Load Frame
• Automatic Hydraulic Power Pack and
• Digital data acquisition & control system
Concrete Pipe Testing Load Frame
The frames are rigid 2 column constructions with superior axial and lateral stiﬀness and are precision aligned. The load-controlled double acting piston is integrated to upper beam. The actuator has anti-rotation system to prevent the natural tendency of the actuator to rotate. The stroke of the double acting actuator is 300 mm. Load cell is used for precise load measurement and closed loop control.
The rectangular shaped top bearer is detachable from the actuator and the bottom bearer is V-shaped with an angle of 150°. During pipe loading the system doesn’t permit top bearer to move at horizontal plane and allows it to move at vertical plane of a minimum value of ±8°. Upper crosshead height adjustment is done with electric motor drive for easy and precise test set up and manual through locking pins are used to ﬁx the upper crosshead.
There are 2 options depending on frame ﬁxing system, with or without chassis.
First option is not including carrying chassis for the machine. These types of frames have to be anchored to concrete base. Steel fasteners and anchorage plan are sent to the customer before installation. Steel fasteners have to be anchored to concrete base by customer according to plan. Following this anchorage process, the frame is assembled.
Second option is including metal carrying chassis for the machine.
