Point Load Tester

The Point Load Tester is a uniaxial compression testing instrument designed for reading out pressure when a specimen is broken, and it consists mainly of a main unit, a pressure gauge and a hydraulic pump. It is very easy to carry the system and make measurements at a site because of its compact and lightweight design. Also, it takes only a short time to carry out a test, and all the works can be done easily by one person.



  • Pressure can be easily read out by its bourdon tube pressure gauges
  • Two bourdon tube pressure gauges (5 MPa and 70 MPa) are attached as standard
  • Size of a specimen can be measured by checking a scale when it is placed in the unit
