1000kN (1MN) / 2000kN (2MN) Static Compression Only Loadframe
Product Code : 1MN or 2MN
The GDS Static Loadframe is actuated from the base by a Hydraulic actuator at loads up to either 1000kN or 2000kN. To increase efficiency and to reduce whole life costs the actuator is powered by a 200cc / 64MPa GDS advanced pressure controller.
This efficiency means that the full load of the frame, 1MN, can be achieved by drawing less than 1000Watts (1 or 2 kW) from mains electricity in place of a hydraulic power pack which can draw up to 30kW.
Note: The 2000kN load frame is for Unconfined tests (UCS) only.
