STANDARDS: EN 1338, 1339, 1340, 12390-5, 12390-6, BS 1881, ASTM C78, C293, C49

Semi-Automatic  (Motorized)  range  of 100 kN, 200 kN, 300 kN and 400 kN capacity Flexural Testing Machines have been designed for reliable and consistent testing of flexural test on standard concrete beams, concrete or natural stone kerbs, concrete paving flags, and natural stone slabs and tensile splitting test of concrete paving blocks with suitable apparatus.
 

The Semi-Automatic Flexural Testing Machines consist of;

Heavy Duty Welded Load Frame,
Semi-Automatic Hydraulic Power Pack,
Digital Readout Unit
 
Flexural test assemblies should be ordered separately.
 

Flexural Load Frame

The multipurpose HİRA Flexural Testing Frames are designed for minimum deflection at maximum load resulting in very  high accuracy. The load frame is a welded steel fabrication carrying the ram fitted to the steel base. All Frames have a single acting up stroking ram with over travel switch protection to stop the machine when maximum ram travel is reached. A load cell is used for load measurements on all frames.
 
Flexural Frames are designed to accept all accessories required for flexural or compression tests.
 
Flexural Frames are 100 kN, 200 kN, 300 kN capacity U Type and 300 kN, 400 kN capacity C Type open structure designed to allow easy and practical front loading of the specimen.
 
The very rigid C type design is ideal either for conventional flexural test or for more sophisticated tests such as deformability and ductility index.
 
The load frame provides the stability needed for accurate and repeatable test results over the years of operation.
 
All frames can be connected to Natek compression machine as a second frame or can be used with any Natek power pack as an independent Flexural Machine.
 
The main characteristics are:
 
High stability welded assembly
High accuracy load measurement with load cells
Can accept wide range of accessories for mentioned standards
Can be connected to Natek Compression Machine or Hydraulic Power Pack
 

FLEXURAL TESTING ACCESSORIES

Flexural Testing Assembly for Concrete Beams test assembly is used for 3 or 4 point flexural tests on 100 or 150 mm Concrete Beams.
