Upgrade the capabilities of the testing machine currently in your lab! Tinius Olsen’s new Model 602 Upgrade Package is designed to easily and economically increase the capabilities and performance of older hydraulically driven testing machines, using the existing load frame.
As with all testing equipment, proper maintenance, regular service and annual calibrations and verifications can extend the life of the equipment, but there comes a time when the control and indicating systems are, quite frankly, old and should be replaced.
The actual test frame may still be performing well, but the indicating system and the control system may be outdated; out of specification (9 inch dials used on some equipment no longer meet the revised ASTM E4 standard low range resolution requirements); or out of order because not only are older style repair parts and components increasingly hard to find, they are also increasingly more expensive.
Note: All machines from all manufacturers must now have a resolution of one part in 200 – which in basic terms means that the lowest calibrated load of any machine in any range is 200 times the resolution.
