Digital Point Load Testing System(PLT-100)

The GCTS Point Load Tester is an apparatus made of high strength anodized-aluminum that incorporates digital technology to increase precision and ease of use while reducing its size and weight.

The GCTS Point Load Tester is an apparatus made of high-strength anodized-aluminum that incorporates digital technology to increase precision and ease of use while reducing its size and weight. The introduction of a pressure sensor to measure load provides a better accuracy at any load level eliminating the imprecision of traditional pressure gauges at low load ranges.

The system has a digital display that continuously monitors applied load. An optional second display provides specimen size in mm (or inches). The maximum load is automatically stored and easily obtainable by pressing a button.

An advanced option for this system is the ultrasonic platens for the measurement of P-wave velocity. The P-wave velocity is a more rational method and gives a better correlation to strength than the point load index. The major advantage of the ultrasonic velocity option is that, as with the point load test, it does not require expensive specimen preparation. The P-wave velocity is measured during the point load test.

Other options include: platens, triaxial cells, and frames for performing uniaxial and triaxial tests on small specimens. These options include software that captures the complete stress-strain curve and automatically calculates strength parameters.
