Compression Frame – These are a heavy duty welded frame. The frames also include the platens as well as distance pieces to adjust the system for different sample sizes.

Semi-Automatic Power Pack – The motorised power pack is controlled by a pressure rate control valve to supply oil to the compression load frame. The operator can then vary the pace rate to suit the testing standard in use.

Digital Readout – the readout is designed for use with the load frames pressure transducer, it offers a realtime view of load and load pressure with peak hold capability and multi point calibration.


Other Variants Available

Manual, Computerized and Fully Automatic Servo hydraulic power packs are also available. VERTEX also produce a range of advanced servo controlled Automatic Power Pack with proportional valves.
