Retrofitting of an Old Concrete Press
We offer you the ability to convert your existing compression testing machine in order to be in conformity with the EN 12390-4 requirements. By keeping your old press frame and installing our kit, you will able to perform the crushes of your specimens fully automatically at the preset load rate while the accuracy of your strength results (MPa) will increased to the highest possible level.Read more
The curing tank is designed for curing concrete cubes and cylinders, in conformity with the EN 12390-2, ASTM C3, C192, C511 standards.
Maintaining a stable and uniform temperature and preventing loss of moisture from the specimen are provided by our system.
The water temperature can be adjusted and can be kept constant by an electric heater and a thermostat to standard value of 20 ± 2 °C. A circulation pump ensures uniform curing conditions to all specimens.
Tanks made of polyethylene (most common), steel or stainless steel, ranging following maximum capacities:
- 390 pcs cubes 150mm / 195 pcs cylinders Ø 150 X 300 mm

The equipment is in conformity with the EN 12350-2 standards.
Air Entrainment Meter
The apparatus is used to determine the air content of fresh concrete. It consists of an aluminum cylindrical vessel with airtight cover assembly incorporating an air pump, a pressure gauge and valves.
Capacity is 7 Lt and Air content range is 0 - 100%. The meter measures up to 22% entrained air, not affected by changes in atmospheric pressures.
Direct pressure gauge reading (Ø 90 mm) to the nearest 0.1% up to 6%, 0.2% from 6 to 8% and 0.5% from 8 to 10%.
The instrument can be calibrated and it is supplied complete with Tamping Rod and Straight Edge.
Carrying Case should be ordered separately.
STANDARDS: EN 12350–7, ASTM C231 TYPE B
Unit Weight Measures
Unit Weight Measures are used to determine the weight per cubic meter of freshly mixed and compacted concrete.
Available in 10 lt capacity, it is manufactured from 4mm heavy gauge steel coated against corrosion, with a 200mm diameter and 320 mm height.
It confirms to EN 12350-6 standards. Also available in 3, 7, 15 and 30 liter capacity models according to the requirements of different Standards.
Hard plastic or steel cube moulds are available in accordance with the dimensions and tolerances stated in the related standards.
Plastic Moulds are one-piece moulds, made from hard Plastic, strong, light while also offering resistant to vibration shocks and wear. They don't require mounting and dismounting operations, thus saving time and labor.
The specimen is expelled from the mould by compressed air or water. They just require a simple clean and demould oiling before being ready for use again for many times.
Steel Moulds are extremely sturdy and the inside surfaces are accurately machined.

Concrete (Schmidt) Test Hammer
This concrete test hammer, has aluminum frame, and thanks to its very accurate manufacture processing and selected components ensures high precision test results in the time.
The quality of concrete is mainly judged by its compressive strength directly affecting the load-bearing capacity and durability of concrete structures.
Using the test hammer it is very easy to directly determine the load bearing capacity and durability of concrete structures having strength resistances from 10 to 70 N/mm². Hammer’s spring impact energy is 2,207 Nm (Joule).
The equipment is supplied completed with calibration curve chart in N/mm² (Mpa) values, abrasive stone and carrying case. Calibration Anvil, used for the verification of the calibration of the hammers.
