ROCK TESTING SYSTEM

Point Load Index Tester

Model: EKE 206-1

Use: Strength Index

Ref. Standard: IS:8764

ENKAY introduces the Point Load Index Tester, a rock testing instrument for determining the Point Load Strength Index of rock cores and irregular lumps which may be tested without any treatment. The Point Load Test is primarily an Index Test for the strength classification of rock materials. This instrument is mainly intended for field measurements on rock specimens, but it can also be used in the laboratory. The results of the test may also be used to predict the uniaxial compressive strength of rock from correlations. The apparatus is light and portable and can be used in the laboratory as well as in the field.

Features:

  • The equipment is light and portable
  • Rock core specimens can be tested without any preparation
  • The instrument can be used in the laboratory as well as at the drilling site
  • The results of the test may also be used to predict the uniaxial compressive strength of rock
  • With this instrument, a wide range of core sizes can be tested
  • The frame has adequate adjustments to align perfectly the loading axis passing through the center of the bearing plates and loading platens at the position of the ram of the hydraulic jack

The equipment comprises the following:

  • EKE 20601 Loading Frame, fitted with Hydraulic Jack, hand operated, capacity 100 kN (10,000 kgf)
  • EKE 20602 Load Gauge, 0 – 25 kN (2,500 kgf), x 0.25 kN (25 kgf)
  • EKE 20603 Load Gauge, 0 – 100 kN (10,000 kgf), x 0.50 kN (50 kgf)
  • EKE 20604 Conical Loading Platens
  • EKE 20606 Loading Frame fitted with Hydraulic Jack, hand operated, capacity 100k
