Extrusion Plastometer Manual Mass SelectorThe ChallengeMany testing laboratories in the industry have a Quality Control (QC) role foreseeing tests run on a regular basis, plus a support role on demand in case of processing issues or new developments. QC roles focusing on multiple products may require various melt flow test conditions.Users in such labs need to change test masses several times a day, performing multiple tests. A basic melt flow tester may cause safety concerns (handling of heavy masses) and demand excessive time and physical effort for cleaning.
The Instron line of CEAST Rheology systems are used to measure the rheological properties of thermoplastics to characterize the polymer melt flow behavior in the process conditions. This is achieved through a broad range of rheology systems - from Melt Flow Testers to Capillary Rheometers.
