Hylec Controls announces the launch of a new range of concrete compression test machines from Form + Test, a German manufacturer of high quality material testing machines and test systems for over 55 years.

The new Beta 5 is a concrete compression test machine comprising of a very sturdy 4-column frame with minimal deflection and a new seal design with a 10-year lifespan. Designed as a cost-effective solution, the Beta 5 is suitable for smaller laboratories with reduced volumes of testing, and is not designed for testing high strength samples (above 80MPa).

Key features of Beta 5 concrete compression test machines include spherical top platen that will align to offset samples and samples not completely flat, helping meet the strain cylinder stability test; compression frame providing high accuracy (grade A) force measurement across the testing range of 60kN to 3000kN using a vector drive; and a new design controller allowing direct USB interfacing with current QestLabLims systems.

The Beta 5 is recommended for conducting compression strength tests on concrete cylinders, cubes, and cores as well as natural stone specimens.
