SL series represents the highest standard in hydraulically powered universal testing machines. It features a patented dual-pressure hydraulic loading system and a rugged four-column construction for exceptional load frame rigidity. In addition, this hydraulic tester has a space-saving console with a smaller footprint and comfortable working height design. A range of user interface options is available (including Bluetooth and/or tethered interfaces) to enable basic tests, comprehensive tests and everything in between through Tinius Olsen’s Horizon materials testing software. SL systems are guaranteed to meet ASTM, ISO and other national and international specifications for accuracy. Accuracy is within +/-0.1% of the indicated load from 0.2-100% of frame capacity.
