Tile Flexure Strength Tester
For carrying out transverse strength tests on cement concrete flooring tiles.
The equipment consist of two bearing rollers and a third self aligning loading roller, all 25 mm in diameter. The center to center distance between bearing rollers can be set at 150, 200 or 250 mm.
The loading is through double lever loading system by means of a steady flow of lead shot from a lead shot container to a receiver hung on the lever system. The rate of flow of lead shot is adjustable as per required rate of loading.
The flow of lead shot stops automatically on failure of test specimen and the breaking load can be calculated by multiplying the weight of lead shot in the receiver by 12.
Maximum capacity of the machine is 2 kN. Lever ratio is 1 : 12. Supplied complete with 20 kg lead shot.
