Various Types of Concrete Testing Equipment Available Online

Concrete testing is crucial to the construction industry as it lets builders and engineers determine

the strength and quality of the material to make sure that it is suitable for their project. Concrete

testing in Australia involves testing cylinder samples for compressive strength. AS1012 explains the

right procedures, sampling equipment, and the machinery and tools for the test. The same

standard specifies other tests, like flexural testing, and determining indirect flexural strength by

splitting. Some types of concrete testing equipment available online can be used on-site. Here is an

overview of the various types of equipment you can find online:

Compression testing machines– Available in automatic, semi-automatic, and manual

versions, compression testing machines can determine the flexural, split, and compression

strengths applied to materials of low tensile strength but with high compression. The

machine applies increasing compressive forces to the sample until failure occurs.

Compression testing machines can provide 2000 kN and 3000 kN capacities and they meet

CE norms requirements for the health and safety of operators. Likewise, their technical

properties meet the EN 12390-4 and local Australian standards.

Compaction testing equipment– Seasoned providers of concrete testing equipment offer

different devices for testing concrete compaction. Some examples of these devices are the

Vebe consistometer, compacting factor apparatus, Kelly ball apparatus, and the degree of

compact ability or Waltz container.

Slump testing equipment– Slump testing is the most commonly used method to

determine the workability and texture of fresh concrete. It seems simple enough, but you

need the right equipment and tools to perform it properly. Through this test, you should be

able to verify similarity between concrete batches. The best equipment is supplied as paint-

coated or galvanised steel to prevent corrosion. The components should include a slump

cone, a base plate, the funnel, tamping rod, steel ruler, and the rubber mallet. All

components must be designed and built to the standards recommended by AS 1012.3.1.

Compressometers – A compressometer is used during a compression test. It determines

the diametrical and axial deformation of the concrete cylinder or the cube specimen.

Reputable providers of concrete testing equipment supply compressometers with three

digital gauges or sensors.
