SL Hydraulic Testing Machines – Compression Only

Tinius Olsen’s popular series of SL hydraulic testing machines are complemented by a series of compression-only test frames. These frames have the same sturdy design, quality materials, and precision engineering like the tension and compression frames, but test in compression only. The Tinius Olsen SL series stands out due to its dependability, accuracy, and power. Its efficient footprint size and nominal maintenance comes from the patented dual low pressure hydraulic loading system which delivers exacting control of movement be it under stress, constant speed, or strain rate control. All SL systems meet ISO, ASTM, GB, GOST, and other international standards in terms of accuracy. Accuracy is within or more than +/- 0.5% of applied force from 0.2% to 100% of frame capacity.

User Interface Options

There are several interface options available in support of test productivity and the user preferences; Tethered handheld, wireless and/or virtual through the test, control and reporting software.

Connectivity

The SL can be used with a broad range of compression extensometers on rock, asphalt, concrete, single or dual or tri averaging extensometers under stress, constant speed or strain rate loading.

Horizon Data Analysis Software

Horizon materials testing software offers an efficient environment through which to perform compression tests, analyze results, view live data throughout the test, report and pass the results to interested parties across a network as data stream or a network data base, or in the form of pass/fail alerts. As a reference system, Horizon combines with the lab user’s standard windows passwords and access, automatically implements traceable signatures in test report footers and delivers a running log of any variations to test techniques and settings.
