Controls Group- High stiffness flexural frame, 200 kN cap., SIMPLEX

- High rigidity (200 kN/mm), especially suitable for testing FRC and sprayed concrete
- For testing different kind of specimens (beams, flagstones, slab) having max length 650mm.
- Load measurement by load cell or pressure transducer
- Piston return by counterweights
- Piston travel limit switch included
This high stiffness flexural frame has been especially designed for displacement controlled testing on advanced construction materials, e.g. fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) and sprayed concrete.
These tests are significantly affected by the actual frame stiffness therefore the relevant international Standards state stiffness limits which are exceeded by this new model (better than 200 kN/mm).
This remarkable result comes from the frame sections but it is also derived from the particular layout which keeps the specimen aligned with the frame crossbeams maximizing structural rigidity.
The new layout also allows easier frontal specimen loading and positioning.
The horizontal daylight accommodates large specimens (slab, flagstones), concrete beams and kerbs long up to 650 mm.
Two models are available, either with pressure transducer or with load cell, both fitted with piston travel limit switch and connection kit to separate control console.
