The compression tester is a material testing machine specially configured to evaluate the mechanical properties of materials. This machine is specially configured to test and test the static compressive strength of products, materials and components. So the compression test measures properties such as ultimate compressive strength, deflection, yield stress, tension, torsion, stiffness and modulus.
Compressive strength test machine is also used to test various materials before they are used in various construction activities. These materials include metals, plastics, biomedical, wood, springs, and electrical and electronic components.
Wood testing is a simple and reliable method for assessing wood’s strength and bending properties. Likewise, if bending resistance is required, bending tests are used to test the strength of the wood. Other accessories are also tested to ensure that they meet the quality requirements for residential and industrial buildings.
What is a stress test?
Compressive strength testing machine determines how a material or substance will react when compressed, crushed, pulverized, or flattened. Therefore, the test data is collected through the basic parameters generated by the specimen’s behaviour under compressive loading. These parameters include soft limits, also known as soft limits or soft limits. In addition, Young’s modulus is another important factor given by the tensile strength to tensile stress.
Compression test type
There are three basic types of stress tests. Here they are:
- Inflection / Inflection
- Spring exam
- Peak charge/crash
Benefits of compression testing
Compression tests provide data on the integrity and safety of materials, materials and products. Manufacturers help ensure that the final product meets the required standards and quality. Additionally, it allows builders to ensure that the materials they intend to use in construction are of the highest quality and have the exact properties required for a particular building.
In addition, the collected data and information from stress tests can be used in several ways. Some of its uses are:
- Determine batch quality
- Determine production consistency
- Evaluate the properties of the material before use.
- Make sure the materials you use are compatible with the properties of the structure.
- Ensure that materials and products comply with national and international standards.
Choice of compression testing machine
The first step before choosing a compressive strength tester is to determine your sample’s size, shape and strength characteristics. Therefore, you can buy the right pressure tester. Next, you need to decide what test data you need. This helps ensure perfect test drivers and software.
The pressure tester uses high-pressure hydraulics as a power source, and a relatively large force is applied. In addition, most of these machines are hydraulic and apply pressure in excess of 200 kN. Construction companies use this machine to test materials such as concrete, cement, brick, rubber and metal.
Compression test parts
The pressure tester consists of four parts. Each of these parts has different functions and properties.
- Main parts of the machine: cross beam, rod, cylinder, frame, base plate
- Hydraulic parts: oil tanks, hydraulic filters, motors, oil return valve assemblies, oil supply valve assemblies, etc.
- Controller part: controller, built-in printer, sensors, etc.
- Computer series (optional): Software, computer, printer
The compression tester is just one of the material testing machines used in the construction industry. Other industries that use material testing machines include the plastics and ceramics industries. Additionally, the manufacturers of these machines offer them according to the buyer’s needs and requirements.
