Alpha 2-3000 S is a compression test machine from Hylec Controls designed for use in rock testing applications.

The rock test equipment can be used to conduct compression tests on rock specimens for load, displacement or deformation control.  

Key features of Alpha 2-3000 S compression test machine:

  • Testing cylindrical rock specimens such as granite or basalt with a length/diameter ratio of 2:1
  • Accuracy:
    • DIN 18136 Issue 2003-11: Building ground, examining soil specimens and uniaxial compression test
    • DIN EN ISO 7500-1, Class 1 including determining the relative width of backlash
  • Test load (pressure) max.: 3000 kN

Options and Accessories

  • Triaxial cell for the triaxial strength test on rock specimens
  • Connection provided for more test machines
  • Extra stiff test frame for uniaxial/ triaxial tests
  • Additional load cell in the lower measuring range (e.g. 1000 kN)
  • 10 volts analogue exit, load or displacement
  • Lateral strain measuring and controlling equipment
  • Drive station with powerful hydraulic aggregate
  • Specific test machine controller for reducing the measuring distance by peak value to enable faster recording of the specimen rupturing as well as synchronous measuring of all meter flumes
  • Proteus test software for test controlling with measurement logging and data storage
