The LT-AS0050 50 kN automatic Marshall Stability Test Machine is used to determine the maximum load and fluidity values of bituminous mixtures. The machine consists of a robust and compact two-column frame with an adjustable upper transverse beam, an electric motor and a worm gear housed inside the base unit. It is designed to operate with minimum maintenance requirements.
The speed of the platen is 50.8 mm / min and is kept constant under load thanks to the very powerful motor. For safety reasons, lower platen movement is limited upwards and downwards by limit switches. Rapid adjustment of the platen is controlled using the up and down buttons on the digital readout unit
The measuring system consists of a 50 kN capacity load cell fitted to the upper transverse beam and a displacement measuring sensor of 25 x 0.01 mm. fitted to the braking head. The machine is supplied with a digital controller with LCD display, Breaking Head for Ø 100 mm samples and 25 mm Displacement Sensor.
