PLT-10 Point Load Tester

Point load strength index measuring.

Rated to 10 ton or 98kN loads, the PLT-10 point load tester is perfect to safely determine the point load strength index of rock or concrete core samples.

OPERATING PRINCIPLE

The unique automatic pump on the PLT-10 requires no manual hand pumping. Ideal to test high volumes of cores. The PLT-10 satisfies the strictest health and safety requirements, and the conical platens conform to ISRM suggested method for point load testing.

The PLT-10 is highly customisable, we encourage you to contact us to discuss various methods of powering the pump, increasing pump pressure, and the numerous data display and storage options available.

APPLICATIONS

Block caving mine, open-cut mines, general civil engineering projects, geotechnical ground monitoring, slopes, bridges, lab, and materials testing.
