The 401 is a Single Block Compression Testing Machine for testing concrete block, cylinders, beams, cubes, masonry products, and rock specimens.


As part of Forney’s Premium “FHS” Series, the machine features a high stiffness frame and fully enclosed test chamber that is especially suited for high testing volumes and high strength concrete testing.

FHS Testing Machines frames are manufactured from solid steel into a one-piece, welded unit that exceeds ACI recommendations.


  • Test types: compression, flexural, modulus of elasticity/poisson's ratio(MP),proppant crush resistance, tensile splitting
  • Testing materials: cylinders, cubes, grout prism, beams, masonry bocks, proppant sand, rock core
