ROCK TESTING SYSTEM

Unconfined Compression Tester for Rock

Model: EKE 217-S2

Use: Unconfined Strength

Ref. Standard: ASTM 2938

This equipment is used for determining the unconfined compressive strength of intact rock core specimens. The rock sample is cut to length and the ends are machined flat. The specimen is placed in a loading frame and if required heated to the desired test temperature.
Axial load is continuously increased on the specimen unit peak load and failure is obtained.

The equipment consists:

  • Load Frame: EKE 065
  • Capacity: 200 kN
  • Speed: 12
  • Proving Ring: 100 kN

Platens, Spherical Seating / Rigid Seating – As per ASTM – 2938 requirements.
