Compression Machine 250K

The Compression Machine 250K is the ideal choice for either the field or laboratory because it is accurate, portable, versatile, dependable, and compact.  It is well suited for testing 6” x 12” concrete cylinders up to 7,000 psi.  It can also test with the optional platens, low strength concrete beams.

The compression machine’s load frame has structural steel side members and solid steel crossheads.  It also features a unique wraparound box construction design.  The design fully welds each corner on both the inside and outside crosshead seams.  This rugged construction provides the stability needed for accurate and repeatable test results year after year.
