Las Vegas (PRWEB) January 22, 2008
ADMET Inc., a provider of integrated materials testing systems, is demonstrating its MegaForce II automatic concrete testing system and Concrete-Traker database program here at World of Concrete Expo in booth # N1366.
Both products are sold as OEM equipment by concrete compressive test frame manufacturers and as retrofits to units in the field.
"During our almost twenty years in the business, ADMET has applied its expertise in machine controls and reporting software to become a major supplier to concrete testing laboratories," said Richard Gedney, ADMET founder and president. "We've designed products that are easy to install, learn and use, and backed them up with free customer service for the life of the product. That approach has enabled us to sell to OEM concrete testing machine suppliers and build a successful retrofit business that helps labs leverage their test frame investments into state-of-the-art systems. ADMET-retrofitted systems are more accurate, ensure tests are performed according to ASTM specifications, make it easier to track specimens, and record, save and share test results."
Precise test control
ADMET's MegaForce II is a user-programmable, electronically-controlled hydraulic pump that offers a quick preload, precise test control and fast return dump valve system. The closed loop system works with single acting pistons up to 10,000 psi and costs 50-70% less than a conventional hydraulic servo system. It can be controlled by ADMET's Gauge Buster Digital Indicator or MTESTWindows Microsoft Windows PC-based Materials Testing System.
MegaForce II increases sample throughput while ensuring that all tests are performed according to specification. It conforms to ASTM specifications for concrete cylinders (ASTM C39) and cement cubes (ASTM C109), as well as cold crush (ASTM C133), concrete beam flexural strength (ASTM C78) and Young's modulus (ASTM C649) testing. Additional information on the MegaForce II family is available at: http://www.admet.com/assets/MegaForceII_Brochure.pdf.
Taking test reporting to a new level
ADMET's Concrete-Traker is an integrated Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/Vista-compatible database program that handles the daily activities of a concrete testing laboratory. It manages daily test scheduling and generates concrete cylinder compressive strength reports by project, contractor or mix design, and highlights summaries of high and low test variances. It also organizes specimen data from collection in the field, through curing to storage, and produces daily statistical work and results summaries.
Reports can be presented on company letterhead and printed, emailed or stored on a password-protected Web portal where project personnel can view the data using a Web browser.
Concrete-Traker accepts test data directly from ADMET digital controllers to simplify test reporting, data storage and report generation. Further information is available at: http://www.admet.com/assets/Concrete%20Traker%20Brochure.pdf.
Both ADMET products significantly increase productivity and throughput by automating repetitive tasks and ensuring accuracy. They reduce test times, provide consistent, repeatable test procedures in accordance with ASTM specifications, eliminate operator errors, reduce data entry time and automatically generate reports. Both MegaForce II and Concrete-Traker are available for retrofits immediately, directly from ADMET and through ADMET representatives.
