Two 20 tonne dual direction rams are each fitted in wheeled carriages that roll along the flanges of the top members of the HPM1 MAGNUS frame (not supplied). There are quick acting clamps that lock the carriage in position.
Both hydraulic rams are operated using a hand pump, which is mounted on a mobile table. A lever on the end of the hand pump allows direction control of the ram between raising and lowering. A digital pressure indicator shows the ram pressure via a transducer. The digital display is calibrated in Psi. The digital indicator can be moved around the hydraulic table and tilted to give a better viewing angle.
Each ram will load the test specimen simultaneously.
The hydraulic table has an integral shelf to store accessories. Each ram comes supplied with its own set of 3metre flexible hoses with self-sealing couplings. One hose for the raising side and another for lowering.
A full operating manual is provided along with a 2-year warranty. A spare can of hydraulic oil is supplied for servicing.
