HM-397 Load Frame, 0.0001—0.3in/min, 10,000lbf (115V/60Hz) offers high performance for CBR and LBR testing, as well as soil cement, unconfined compressive strength and triaxial testing when fitted with the required test-specific Component Set, sold separately. This unit features a high-speed platen advance for rapid positioning of the 8in (203mm) diameter platen, which allows for faster set-up. It has a total capacity of 10,000lbf (44.5kN) with a frame opening of 11.9x37.3in (302x947mm), and a strain rate of 0.001—0.1in/min (0.0254—2.54mm/min). It is equipped with a 3/4hp DC motor with controllers to precisely regulate strain rates to ±1% of set point. Horizontal cross-head heights can be easily changed using adjusting nuts. The coarse-threaded 1.25in (32mm) high strength plated vertical rods are corrosion resistant. The unit has a sturdy 14-gauge painted steel cabinet that stands up to rugged use.
HM-397F has the same features, but operates at 230V/50Hz.
