Model 2000 Medium Duty Fixing Testers - enabling engineers to confirm the holding power of anchors in most construction materials
Hydrajaws Model 2000 Medium Duty Fixing Testers enable engineers to confirm the holding power of anchors in most construction materials, either for the purpose of establishing safe working loads or to validate the correct installation of existing fixings. The tensile load of up to 25kN is applied to the fixing mechanically and hydraulics are used to register the load through an accurate analog gauge, making the tester very reliable.

The choice of 5 gauge capacities means the precision of readings can be optimised for each application. Load spreading bridges and the pyramid stool keep reaction loads away from the fixing. Fixings up to M16 may be located directly in the tester, while a variety of adaptors enable a wide range of other types and sizes to be tested.Standard 'Out of the box' equipment

Model 2008 Heavy Duty Fixing Testers - enabling engineers to confirm the holding power of anchors in most construction materials
he portable self-contained 145kN Model 2008 Heavy Duty Tester has been designed to meet the demand for proof load testing of larger construction fixings.

A lightweight aluminium load spreading bridge has been designed specifically for the model 2008 tester and directs reaction loads away from the fixing, this combined with the tester weighs only 14kg.

The bridge is easy is assemble and adjust. Three fully adaptable telescopic lightweight aluminium legs offering 11 height positions are held in place with steel ball pins. The swivel feet offer 30mm of fine adjustment.

The triangular shape bridge plate is deliberately offset to offer two different close to edge testing distances in relationship to the fixing under test. The tester can be secured to the bridge plate in these two positions with the supplied cap screws. Securing the tester to the plate is not crucial when the tester is being operated in a horizontal position however is essential when the tester is in a vertical position or inverted.

The 400mm connecting drop rod with adjustable nut passes through the aperture in the tester and connects to the fixings under test below. The Model 2008 is supplied with 5 metric Threaded Adaptors M12, M16, M20, M24 & M30 for connecting to threaded stud. Imperial UNC equivalent threaded adaptors are available.

A spirit level indicates the overall balance of the test rig.

A 10mm eye hook is installed for attaching a lanyard as appropriate.

Load application is achieved via a 22mm ratchet handle driving a hydraulic multiplier and the applied load is verified on a digital gauge which is integral with the tester.

When the digital gauge is due for calibration simply unfasten 5 button head screws and remove the case cover to reveal the gauge and detach from the hydraulic coupling.

An optional heavy duty ringbolt clevis can be specified for testing large eyebolts, ringbolts and pad eyes. The M20 drop rod screws securely into the top of the clevis.

For testing Rebar, Hydrajaws can supply a range of optional adaptors. The aperture in the tester can accommodate 6mm, 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 14mm, 16mm, 18mm, 20mm & 22mm rebar.

The foam filler can accommodate four Rebar adaptors.

An optional wider span load spreading bridge is available however this is rated to 125kN only.
Optional Digital Bluetooth SolutionThe Model 2008 tester kit can be supplied with our new Digital Bluetooth gauge in lieu of the standard digital gauge. This next generation Bluetooth version linked to an Android OS mobile device will record test data wirelessly and is able to provide GPS location. Alternatively the Digital Bluetooth Gauge can be retro fitted.

The gauge is supplied with a calibration certificate valid for 12 months.

This compact design of tester and telescopic load spreading bridge is lighter and more convenient to apply than a separate hydraulic pump and cylinder arrangement.
