KMI universal force testing systems are ideal for testing the properties of plastic pipe. The KMI 201T line of dual column electromechanical systems can be equipped with a wide range of grips and fixtures allowing them to easily tackle many aspects of pvc pipe testing equipment. These systems perform compression, tensile, ring stiffness, ring flexibility, and other mechanical force tests. KMI software can perform with common test methods such as ASTM D2412, ASTM D638, ASTM D695, ASTM D790, and many more. KMI’s ASTM D2412 compression platen assembly with two load cells offers unparalleled stiffness and rigidity for testing plastic pipe.
All KMI universal force testing systems feature constant-rate-of-extension travel and meet or exceed ASTM E4, the standard practice for force verification of testing machines that is required in order to perform many ASTM and ISO specifications. We also offer a large selection of grips, fixtures, and accessories specifically designed for pvc pipe testing equipment
