COMPLIANT TO ASTM D5731-16
INCREASED LOAD CAPACITY AND PRODUCTIVITY
DURABLE AND STABLE
The PIL-10 is a portable point load tester used for determining the point load strength index for rock strength classification. Keeping all the qualities of our former PIL-7 tester, the PIL-10 offers increased strength, productivity, reliability and ease of use. Its durable stainless steel construction can handle hard cores up to PQ size.
The PIL-10 point load tester consists of a loading frame, a hydraulic cylinder, a pump and a pressure gauge for maximum load reading. An upper conical platen is fixed on the frame and a lower one on the cylinder piston. A graduated scale is fixed on the frame and indicates the specimen diameter. A quick disconnect coupling make it easy to disassemble the pump from the main frame for ease of transportation. A removable protective cover work jointly with a fix tray to create an enclosure that keeps the rock fragments and debris contained for a safe and clean work environment.
