The VJ Tech digital Point Load Tester (with separate hand held digital display) is used to determine the strength values of a rock specimen and can be used either in the field or the laboratory. It conforms to ISRM & ASTM D5731-08.
We also supply Hoek Cells which are used to measure the strength of cylindrical rock specimens when subjected to triaxial compression. They can be used with our 2000kPa or 3000 kPa Concrete Compression machines (see Compression section).
Additionally, the VJ Tech Rock Brazilian Testing Head is used to measure the load required to crush a 60mm diameter rock sample in a Triscan 100 kN Frame. Load Cells and Adaptors available on request.
