W-C016-C | Temperature Replaceable Inserts

High Temperature Replaceable Inserts are made from the 214 alloy, which offers superior high temperature performance. The replaceable insert design allows the gripping knife-edges to be replaced when they get dull, which causes extensometer slippage. Older style extensometers required the knife-edges to be machined or heads completely replaced. 

With extensometers that accept these inserts, only the inserts have to be replaced, this means great cost savings.

Features Include:

  • High temperature, high corrosion resistant 214 alloy is used. Lifetimes can exceed 4700 hours at 1100 Deg. C (2000 Deg. F) depending on the knife-edge wear.
  • Inserts are available for either flat or round specimens: Rounds:1.6 to 12.8 mm (0.0625 to 0.505 in) diameter Flats: 1.6 to 12.7 mm (0.0625 to 0.5 in) thick and 16 mm (0.625 in) wide are available.
  • Precision machining is done based on the specific specimen size being tested for excellent concentricity, which minimizes specimen bending. SPECIFY SPECIMEN SIZE AT TIME OF ORDERING
  • The price includes one set (4) of inserts. Two split halves for the top and two split halves for the bottom, (enough to replace one extensometer).
