500 Series Concrete Compression Machine by Gilson Featured

Written by

Gilson 500 Series Concrete Compression Machines have 500Mlbf (2,224kN) capacities for strength testing of concrete specimens.

Robust, high-capacity units are configured to test standard 6x12in (152 x 302mm) concrete cylinders up to 14,100psi, but optional accessories and attachments easily adapt them for testing different sizes of cubes, cores, masonry prisms and cylinders, as well as flexural beam specimens. They meet or exceed frame stiffness recommendations of ACI 363 to allow continuous uniform loading. Models include Load Frame Mounting Stand to place the frame at an optimum height for efficient handling of samples.


  • 500Mlbf (2,224kN)
  • Accuracy exceeds ASTM C39 and E4 requirements
  • Frame meets or exceeds ACI 363 recommendations for stiffness
  • Latchable steel Fragment Guard Doors promote safety
  • Piston with pressure bleed hole prevents use beyond maximum capacity
  • Oil-immersed pumps have two stages to maintain continuous rate of loading
  • 3/4hp motor for smooth, powerful operation
