Building Materials

Leading-edge structural designs require new, higher-performing materials, civil engineers strive to develop stronger, more durable construction materials and components. To achieve these objectives and satisfy industry standards accurate and repeatable testing must be done.

EXAMPLES:

►Testing for Flexural Properties of Unreinforced and Reinforced Lumber.► Compression Testing of Metals and Composites, ►Flexural Properties of Plastics.

United High Capacity Smart Universal Hydraulic Floor Model (SHFM) tension and compression testing machines with computer control are available with capacities from 300 kN (67,500 lbf) to 2,000 kN (450,000 lbf). Available with extended columns. United 'SMART' Testing Machines meet the requirements of ASTM E-8, ASTM E-9 and ASTM E-83.
United's Load Cells are designed to precisely measure the amount of force (load) applied to the specimen being tested. Available in single or dual bridge, United load cells offer the flexibility of using two readouts simultaneously, if desired. Constructed to meet ASTM E-4 requirements.
Servo-Controlled Hydraulic Floor Model 2000 kN (450,000 lbf). United SHFM 1000 and SHFM 2000  kN Hydraulic Testing Machines have four columns and test in Tension or Compression (Universal). The SHFM Hydraulic testing systems are fully accessorized and include the following at no additional cost: Hydraulic Grips with inserts for both flat flat and round test specimens, Flex Fixture and Compression Plates. United 'SMART' Testing Machines meet the requirements of ASTM E-8, ASTM E-9 and ASTM E-83.
The United Digital Speedy Tester Model LCH-150KN is a hydraulic testing machine incorporating a highly accurate, built-in digital information system for the display of test data. Designed to perform a variety of tests, the versatile, easy-to-use Speedy Tester can be fitted with various types of grips and fixtures to accommodate a wide range of materials and applications. The Speedy is a Tension Tester, outfitted with a compression cage it can also perform compression tests.
United Transverse Flexure Fixture Three and Four Point Loading  ASTM D-6109 Plastic Lumber.
United Transverse Flexure Fixture ASTM D-198, Three (3) and (4) Point Loading.
Convenience and reliability is what the Clark Portable " Rockwell" Tester, Model CPT, provides the user.  It has the ability to test both inside and outside surfaces at any angle without affecting accuracy.  Quick change indenter, easy to read dial indicators, and finger tip loading make the CPT a handy and efficient form of testing large and inaccessible parts.
United Transverse Rupture Unit for Carbide requires 2.5" diameter compression plates.
