Chant Engineering manufactures elongation measurement systems for our testing machines. These systems are used to measure the stretch of the specimens during a test. Mounted on the machine behind steel plates for protection, the Chant Elongation Measurement System uses a precision extensometer to measure the position of the hydraulic cylinder rod.
In use the operator will load in the test specimen and then take it up to a reference load to remove any sag in the specimen. Once the test is begun the computer displays two graphs: One load vs time and one load vs elongation. The exact position is measured from the start point of the test to the test completion. All elongation testing information is displayed, stored and searchable.
Chant Engineering’s testing equipment meets or exceeds all AWRF safe practices and guidelines.
