2 Station Heat Distortion And Vicat Softening Point Apparatus
Order Code : RR1700

Basic low cost entry level system for simple heat distortion and vicat softening point testing

Product Overview

Designed to evaluate the strength characteristics of plastic polymers when the temperature is increased at a set rate. Heat distortion determines the point on a temperature ramp at which a test sample, subject to a given bending stress, will deflect a predetermined amount. Vicat determines the point on a temperature ramp at which a loaded tip, having a precise area, will penetrate a test sample by a predetermined amount.

Basic entry level system for simple heat distortion and vicat softening point testing. Advanced dedicated microprocessor technology designed specifically for the apparatus. Design incorporates a communication link to the temperature controller enabling the control of the oil bath temperature to be accurately measured and recorded. Outputs from the Mitutoyo displacement gauges are accepted, analysed and directed by the microprocessor.

The station design is such that the test stations do not have to be removed from the apparatus to unload a sample.

Standard Specification

The following features are supplied as standard and are included in the basic cost of the apparatus.

  • Advanced dedicated microprocessor control
  • 0-400 C digital temperature measurement, control and display
  • Unique Archimedean pump design for highly accurate temperature distribution
  • Built-in cooling system
  • Overheat safety protection system
  • 2 x HDT heads
  • 2 x vicat nibs
  • 2.5 mm ball driver
  • Dip stick and filling plug
  • Calculation spreadsheet for modular binary HDT test weight system
  • Product user manual
  • Fully traceable certificate of calibration
  • CE declaration of conformity
  • 1 year return to base manufacturer's warranty

Optional Test Weights

Test weights are priced individually per station. If only one type of test is required it will only be necessary to purchase one type of test weights.

HDT

A new system using a progression of weights has now been incorporated for HDT. A set of 14 different test weights with 1 gram progression is available which combine to give any load from 1 gram to 3119 grams. Loads are easily calculated based on the test sample dimensions and the fibre stress selected. A spreadsheet is provided to facilitate this calculation.
