Model X-PP is a push-pull force gage available in four capacities to measure compression or tension reading compression clockwise from zero and tension conversely. Models up to and including 1000 pounds are supplied with a set of self-aligning spherical rod end connectors for tension loading. Models with 2500 and 5000 pound capacities are equipped with two shackle adapters, shackles and pins for tensile testing. All X-PP gages are also supplied with a ball fitting for compression loading. The X-PP is available in pound or kilogram capacities.

Accuracy ±2% F.S. Full Scale. NIST Calibration Certificate included.

  • Shockless dial indicator is available for sudden application or release of load.
ALL MODELS (X-C, X-ST, and X-PP):
Features & Description
  • Capacities: 100 to 25,000 lbf
  • Tension & Compression
  • Available in lbf & kgf
  • Sustains 30% overload
  • Large easy-to-read dial
 

The three versions of the Dillon Model X Gage Series measure compression, tension and push-pull forces in a wide range of capacities to 25,000 pounds. The "D" shaped deflection spring constructed from high strength aluminum with higher ranges in alloy steel is the heart of the Model X force gage. The easily read dial may be equipped with an optional shockless dial indicator for tests that involve the sudden application or release of force.

A maximum reading pointer is standard on Models X-C and X-ST. Dial options include: zero position at 12, 3, 6 or 9 o'clock. The X gages are protected by a baked enamel finish to resist corrosion and rust. All models sustain overloads up to 30% of capacity with no damage to the indicator or spring. All capacities feature a 5:1 safety factor and may be mounted horizontally, vertically or flat. Capacities up to 10,000 pounds include carrying case; higher ranges include wooden boxes.

Specifications

CONSTRUCTION

  • Constructed of quality alloy steel.
  • Rotating dial with zero adjust lock for zero adjustment.
  • Flat bottom surface standard on all models; recessed bottom available on models thru 250 pounds for limited vertical clearance (0.349" thick).
  • Large easy-to-read dial available with pound, kilogram or Newton graduations.
  • Optional shock resistant dial indicator is available for added shock protection.
  • May be permanently mounted on a plate or in test fixtures.

ACCURACY

OPERATION

  • Compression force is applied to a fitting mounted on upper beam surface.
  • Maximum reading pointer is included for peak force hold.
  • Recessed deflection beam and compression load fittings are recommended when vertical clearance is extremely limited.

POWER REQUIREMENTS

  • Choice of load buttons - one with flat bottom models, two with recessed models, maximum reading pointer and carrying case.
  • Optional: A variety of load buttons and shockless dial indicator.

WEIGHT & DIMENSIONS
