ELE concrete testing video

Brief new video explains the benefits offered by the latest technology in compression machines

ELE International, specialists in the design, manufacture and supply of construction materials testing equipment and environmental instrumentation, have released a new video explaining how the latest technology in compression machines reduces costs and improves the quality and traceability of concrete testing.

The video is presented by ELE’s senior service engineer, Mark Bolton, who demonstrates the simplicity of the new touch-screen controls. He also shows viewers how to ensure compliance with Standards with a manual compression machine, and how users of automatic machines can do so whilst ensuring consistency and saving costs by freeing staff for other duties.

The four main benefits of the latest machines – accuracy, cost savings, traceability and safety – are described in the video, which also outlines how these machines are better by design, featuring a touch-screen interface and intuitive menu-driven operation with the facility to store up to 500 fully traceable test results.

According to ELE, the cost of accurate testing is negligible in comparison with the cost of material failures, so one of the video’s main messages is: ‘If something is worth building; it’s worth testing properly’.

The video can be viewed on the Compression Machine pages in the Concrete Testing Equipment section of the ELE website ( or on ELE’s YouTube channel.
