Hydraulic Power Pack

Automatic Hydraulic Power Pack, dual stage, controlled by digital readout unit is designed to supply the required oil to the load frames for loading.
 
Controller unit has a simple and compact configuration. The Hydraulic Power Pack, Control and Read out Units are positioned on the right hand side of the load frame for easier accessibility, increased productivity and for safer operations.
 
Very silent power pack can load the specimen between 1 kN/sec. to 20 kN/sec, with an accuracy of ±5%. A Rapid approach pump is supplied as standard. Safety valve (maximum pressure valve) is used to avoid machine overloading.
 
Maximum working pressure of the system is 400 bar.
 

Dual Stage Pump

The dual stage pump is formed by two groups;
 
1. Low pressure gear pump
2. High pressure radial piston pump
 
On the dual stage pump, a high delivery, low pressure gear pump is used for rapid approach, while a low delivery, high pressure radial piston pump is used for test execution. The rapid approach facility shortens the time interval from piston start until the upper platen touches to the specimen. This excellent feature helps to save a lot of time when a large number of specimens are going to be tested.
 

Motor

The motor which drives the dual pumps in an AC motor and it is controlled by motor inverter. The variation in the oil flow is executed with the variation of the rotation speed of the motor.
 

Distribution Block

A distribution block is used to control the oil flow direction supplied by the dual stage pump, the following parts are fitted to the distribution block; Solenoid valve, Safety valve (max. pressure valve), Transducer, Low pressure gear pump and High pressure radial piston pump.
 

High Precision Pressure Transducer

The Natek range of Automatic Machines can be upgraded with option High Precision
 
Pressure  Transducer  special  calibration  Class  1  starting  from  1%  of  the  full range.
 
This unique performance enables the machines to be used for a considerable number of applications including:
 
Early age (2 or 3 days) compression strength tests
Flexural and splitting tests by using proper accessories
Mortar (Cement) compression tests by using proper accessories
Core Testing
 

Oil Tank

The tank includes enough oil to fill the mechanism which pushes the ram during the test. The level and oil temperature can be seen on the indicator fitted to the tank. It has 25 L capacity. Hydraulic motor oil, number 46, must be used.
 

Digital Data Acquisition & Control System

The unit is designed to control the machine and processing of data from load-cells and pressure transducers which are fitted to the machine.
 
All the operations of the unit are controlled from the front panel consisting of a LCD display and function keys.
 

The unit has easy to use menu options.

Digital graphic display unit loading rate of the time of Testing and load values can be monitored.
 
Digital graphic display is able to draw real-time “Load vs. Time”.
 

Software

Sample, company, laboratory and test values can be entered in the programme.
 
Load-time graphic, test reports and sample reports can be taken.
 
Software provides test data, results, and the load-time graphs can be seen at LCD screen.
 
The Automatic  Compression Machine can  be controlled (Start, Stop commands)  by     a computer with the software free  of charge. This software provides data acquisition  and management for compression, tensile and splitting tensile test throughout the test execution. The advanced functions for data base management provide an easy navigation of all saved data. The test results certificate includes all descriptive information. Therefore, test parameters can be set and details about the test carried out such as client details, test type, specimen type, user info and other information required can be entered and printed out as well as test report and graph.
