The instrument accepts core specimens up to 4” (101.6 mm) diameter which is loaded with two cones shaped points.
A graduated scale indicates the distance between the conical points.
The applied load is measured by a high precision electric load cell with a digital display unit range 0-56kN proving:-
0.001 kN resolution
The strength index (IS) is got by the formula P : D2 where P is the strength and D the space between the two conical points.
Supplied complete with wooden carrying case, goggles, accessories.
Dimensions: 400 x 530 x 720 mm
