Hand Operated Compression Testing Machine is a simple kind of machine designed to test the compressive strength of cement and concrete or similar materials. This machine works on hydraulic system in which the pressure is supplied through a hand operated pump like handle. Due to this, the process of testing the compressive strengths of concrete cubes becomes simple and easy.
The lower platen is on the hydraulic ram and the upper having a sphere-shaped seating is adjustable. In this machine, the load is applied through hydraulic assembly.
Self-aligning platen assembly
Suitable for testing cubes and cylinders of various sizes
