VICAT-HDT Softening Test Apparatus

VICAT-HDT Softening Test Apparatus

Description

Laboratory test equipment for the determination of the softening point VICAT and the bending temperature HDT in thermoplastic materials.

  • Bathroom interior in stainless steel.
  • The design of the interior volume is studied in such a way as to ensure a perfect thermal exchange, both for heating and cooling.
  • Temperature control by PID and Pt-100 sensor.
  • Working temperature: from ambient to +250 ºC.
  • Resolution: +/- 0.1ºC.
  • Accuracy: +/- 0.2ºC.
  • Heating rate: 120ºC / hour and 50ºC / hour (configurable).
  • Equipped with 3 Pt100 temperature probes (one for each test station).
  • Test stations equipped with linear displacement sensors, with a range of 10 and a resolution of ± 0.01 mm.
  • Set of 16 weights for each test station included in supply: 2 of 5 g, 2 of 10 g, 2 of 15 g, 1 of 25 g, 1 of 50 g, 1 of 100 g, 2 of 200 g, 1 of 500 g, 1 x 750 g, 1 x 845 g, and 2 x 2000 g (16 weights per station x 3 = 48 weights total).
  • Computerized with vicat-hdt testing software.
  • RS-232 output interface with converter to USB.
  • CE marked.
  • Automobile panels.
  • Tubes and plastic pipes.
  • Automotive dashboards.
