Large Hydraulic, Four-Point Bending Beam Machine

Supports the following standards: ASTM D7460, AASHTO T321, EN 12697-24 Annex D, EN 12697-26 Annex B

The CRT-LH4PT-BB uses advanced servo-hydraulic technology and a high-speed digital data acquisition and control system together with user-friendly software. During testing both graphical and tabular data are displayed on screen and test data is stored to disc in Microsoft Excel™ compatible format. The test frame is housed in a Temperature Controlled Cabinet with fan-assisted air circulation and a temperature range of -20 to 30°C.

The unique constant torque clamping and three-transducer deflection measurement system of the CRT-LH4PT-BB can be configured to accept different beam sizes. This means that the ratio between beam dimensions and maximum aggregate size of test specimens will satisfy the requirements of the relevant European specifications.
