Servo-Hydraulic Universal Testing Machine – 100 kN

The CRT-UTM-HYD100 is a versatile universal testing machine designed and developed with the testing of pavement construction materials in mind.

Accurate waveforms are digitally generated by our next generation cDAC controller and applied by the actuator, producing repeatable conditions that are simulative of those created by moving or static vehicles. The actuator is double acting allowing both compressive and tensile forces to be applied to the specimen. Various systems are available for the measurement of the modulus of unbound materials. The optional programmable temperature controlled cabinet (TCC) provides the possibility to perform frequency/ temperature sweeps.

Key Features

  • Hydraulically adjustable crosshead and crosshead clamping (Moving Head version only)
