Bend Testing Machine flexure strength of building materials ETM104F-1
This type of machine is to determine the flexure strength of building materials.
Flexural strength testing apparatus
NOTE The provision of this apparatus is optional. If only the compressive strength is to be measured,
prisms may be broken using other suitable means which do not subject the prism halves to harmful stresses.
The flexural strength can be measured by using a flexural strength testing machine or by using a
suitable device in a compression testing machine. In either case the apparatus shall conform to the
The apparatus for the determination of flexural strength shall be capable of applying loads up to 10 kN
with an accuracy of ± 1,0 % of the recorded load in the upper four-fifths of the range being used, at a
rate of loading of (50 ± 10) N/s.
The apparatus shall be provided with a flexure device incorporating two steel supporting rollers of
(10,0 ± 0,5) mm diameter spaced (100,0 ± 0,5) mm apart and a third steel loading roller of the same
diameter placed centrally between the other two. The length of these rollers shall be between 45 mm
and 50 mm.
Servo motor driven lead screws and heavy duty bearings provides high stiffness with high reliability and stability
Photoelectrical encoder built in servo motor system is for position measurement of crosshead
Built-in high precision load cell ensures direct measurement of compression force
Dual action over-travel limits on all frames provide the highest level of safety and meet all international standards
