Cold Compression Strength (CCS) Test RB 1000

According to ISO 4700, ASTM E 382 and IS 8625 Standards, RB 1000 is a fully automatic system for determination of the crushing strength of fired iron ore pellets and reduced iron ore pellets. The equipment consists of a loading unit, with an automatic handler and feeder for the samples and an electronic unit for indication, printing and statistic calculation of crushing strength test data.



Following options are also available:
  • Load Cell for low loads (3 kN full range) for soft pellets – interchangeable with 10 kN cell – auto calibration software.
  • Continuous sample dimension measuring device for determination of crushing load by sample contraction logic.
  • PC software for crushing test data acquisition together with each test load curves data and statistic analysis.
  • Calibration system based on an external certified 10kN load cell complete of signal conditioning unit.
System Features

The loading device, with a capacity of 1,000 daN (~1,000 kg), works at constant compression speed (5, 10, 15 or 20 mm/ min). The low speed is kept only during the compression period. High speed movement of the compression plate is provided in the approach and return phases to reduce total test time.

The applied load is measured by means of interchangeable precision load cells that can be supplied with different full range values.
The load measuring system is equipped with an electrical self-calibration performed periodically during the test CCS values are displayed and printed both in kilogram or in decaNewton with a resolution of 1 kg or 1 daN respectively.
