The MS-86 Marshall Stability Load Frame has a 10,000lbf (44.5kN) capacity and similar design and construction features to the MS-398 Pro-Loader II Load Frame, but loading rate is fixed at 2in (50.8mm) per minute specified for Marshall testing. The loading rate is maintained at ±1% by the 3/4hp DC motor and controller.
A 6-3/4in (171.5mm) diameter lower platen is included and the load frames have a vertical clearance of 37.3in (947mm) and horizontal clearance of 11.9in (302mm). Cross-head heights are quickly and accurately changed using the self-centering adjusting nuts. Cabinet construction is 14-gauge steel with a durable enamel finish. The 1-1/4in (31.8mm) diameter vertical threaded rods are plated for corrosion resistance. Malleable boots protect the precision loading screws from dust and dirt.
