Concrete Testingw+b offers a wide range of testing machines for different concrete tests. Each system can be individually configured according to your testing needs for an optimal solution.
Concrete is a construction material composed of cement as well as other cementitious materials such as fly ashes and slag cement, aggregates made from crushed rocks such as limestone or granite, plus a fine aggregate such as sand, water and chemical admixtures.
Concrete solidifies and hardens after mixing with water and placement due to a chemical process known as hydration. The water reacts with the cement, which bonds the other components together, eventually creating a stone-like material. Concrete is used to make pavements, pipe, architectural structures, foundations, motorways/roads, bridges/overpasses, parking structures, brick/block walls and footings for gates, fences and poles.
In this section you find a wide range of testing machines for the determination of the strength of concrete.
In addition we offer a wide range of testing equipment for the determination of workability, consistency, setting time, volumic mass, air content, linear variations as well as for the sample prepatation a.s.o.
All testing machines and equipment conforms to the relevant international standards as EN, ISO, ASTM and other corresponding national standards.
Compression Testing Machine Series D5 up to 3000 kNThe D5 series testing machines are designed for the determination of the compressive strength of test specimens of hardened concrete according to EN 12390-3, EN 12504-1 and EN 206.
The model D5 with capacity 2500 kN is also available in a execution well suited for the additional determination of the Young's modulus on concrete in accordance with EN 12390-13, ASTM C469, ISO 6784 and DIN 1048-5.
These compression testing machines comply with the strain cylinder test requirements (straintest execution) according to ISO EN 12390-4 / DIN 51302-2.
Fiber-Reinforced Concrete and Mortar Testing Machines Series DBZ up to 500 kNThe DBZ building materials platforms are robust and versatile static testing machines tailored for accurate and repeatable testing of fiber-reinforced concrete and mortar.
These flexural test systems can be equipped with a wide range of test fixtures to perform flexural, compression and tension tests on a variety of materials
Universal Flexural Testing Machines with Extra Wide Bending Table Series B - S 50 - 200 kNThe B-S universal flexural (bending) testing machines are well suited for testing of long specimens as concrete beam, pile, prism, railway sleepers as well as wooden / timber specimens and structures.
With appropriate accessories the machine can also perform compression, tensile, shear and other tests on a variety of materials.
Creep Testing Machines Series HKB up to 1000 kNThe HKB Long-Term Creep testing machines are used to perform Creep Tests on Cement Based materials.
Creep is a time dependent viscoelastic deformation of a cement based material like concrete under permanent load. Creep can cause additional, time dependent deformations in building components.
When it is needed to subtracting the shrinkage deformations another load-free specimen will be used to measure the shrinkage.
