Compression Test Plant ToniZEM

Test plant in compact design for efficient, standard-compliant compressive strength tests on cement and other binding materials, preferably on:

  • Prisms 40 x 40 x 160 mm accord. to EN 196 and ISO 679
  • Cubes 50 mm (2 inch) edge length accord. to ASTM C 109
  • Cubes 70.7 mm edge length accord. to BS 1881


  • Accuracy:   Quality Class 1 / EN ISO 7500-1 / DIN 51220
  • Sizes:            300 kN / 600 kN


Key benefits for the user:

✓ Easy programming and user-friendly operation
✓ Designed as space-saving compact unit
✓ Optional PC-control by software testXpert
✓ Microprocessor control and servo-hydraulic control (closed loop)
✓ Software and printer for automatic raw data printing available
✓ Result evaluation by PC with software testXpert
✓ Linkage with laboratory information systems (LIMS) possible

For the ToniZEM are various pressure plates, diverse accessories and extensions available.



The test plant consists of the following components:

Compact-Powerbox: Compact drive unit in table-design, including servo valve, pump unit, electronic system and temperature monitoring.

Measuring and Control System ToniTROL II: Computer-controlled measuring and control system for the functions measuring, control, operation and monitoring of building material test plants.

Load Frame 600 kN: Compact and rigid load frame for compressive strength tests with a maximum load of 600 kN; two-column design with hard crome-plated columns, equipped with vertical plunger drive and high-precision load cell on DMS basis.

Test Area Protection: Protective device with electrical safety circuit (required in the EU states for CE-conformity).


Optional Accessories

Manual bending device, model 1543.020: For break up prisms 40 x 40 x 160 mm in half; attached to the housing of the Powerbox.

Adapter flange, model 1546.014: For testing prisms 40 x 40 x 160 mm in vertical position, e.g. for the determination of the Young´s modulus.

Adapter flange, model 1546.015: For testing specimens with a height of up to 100 mm.
