Compression testing machines are used to determine the compressive strength of concrete cylinders, cubes, and masonry blocks. It is in a high stiffness four-column construction with single acting ram. It features a strain gauge load cell force measuring systems. It is used for measuring load transfer by means of a strain-gauged column.
A compressor coating reduces corrosion in the turbine system of a gas turbine engine. The coating is not wet by droplets or aerosols of sea water. The coating reduces the build up of salt deposits on compressor components and their subsequent passage into the turbine section, which prevents corrosion.
