CONTROLS 2000 kN Automatic Compression Testing Machine

Automatic Compression testing machine is used for testing of specimens with maximum load capacity of 2000kN.

This Multipurpose compression tester has been designed for various applications in which a limited maximum load is requested, together with a large testing space such as, for instance, compressive strength on lightweight concrete and soil-cement specimens using, if necessary, the suitable accessory. It is also ideal for testing high strength cement specimens and refractory.
