2-25 kN Deben rig

2-25kN Deben rig

  • Specimen diameters ranging from 1 mm - 30 mm.
  • Specimen length between 5 mm - 80 mm.
  • Load cells ranging from 1.25, 2.5, 10 to 25 kN with alternative load baring supports for improved geometric X-ray CT resolution.
  • Compressive and tensile operation modes capable of imaging over 360 degrees.
  • Remote system control for in-situ X-ray CT experiments.
  • Usable for X-ray CT based experiments on the Nikon 320 kV and the High Flux Bay at the HMXIF, or the synchrotron beam lines.
  • In Situ Equipment
