Tinius Olson, manufacturers of materials testing equipment provide a range of concrete, cement, lime, mortar, plaster, sand, aggregates, fillers and asphalt testing apparatus. The range of testing apparatus includes compressive strength, flexural strength, Young’s modulus, drying shrinking and moisture movement, flow and workability, flakiness and elongation, specific gravity and water absorption, penetration and compaction, ductibility and flexure.
Tinius Olson testing machines, available from Power Parameters , provide testing to ASTM, BS and other international standards. Typical examples of the range are the compression testers, TO-series semi-automatic model range with two-speed pump allowing for rapid response to daylight closure conditions and with a control valve allowing fine control over the loading rate, thus permitting repeatable pacing.
TO-Mu series compression testers include two additional, programmable motors for accurate pace control as well as opening/closing of the release valve. TO-Mu series compression testers feature automatic data logging with peak load record and menu-driven control interface. Portable compression testing machines come with a compression capacity of 1500kN and a detachable hydraulic jack.
