INTRODUCTION

TMI's Melt Flow Indexer is a NEW and AFFORDABLE tabletop instrument that tests the melt flow resistance (MFR) of a wide range of thermoplastics. The tester conforms to all National and International melt flow resistance standards, including BS EN ISO 1133 and ASTM D1238. Any temperature within 120C-450C (248F-842F) can be accurately controlled.

APPLICATIONS

Melt Flow, Plastics

STANDARDS

  • BS EN ISO 1133 -- Determination of the melt mass-flow rate (MFR) and the melt volume-flow rate (MVR) of thermoplastics
  • ASTM D1238 -- Method A Standard Test Method for Melt Flow Rates of Thermoplastics by Extrusion Plastometer

MELT FLOW INDEXER WITH AUTO CUT-OFF FEATURE

TMI's Melt Flow Indexer is a NEW and AFFORDABLE tabletop instrument that tests the melt flow resistance (MFR) of a wide range of thermoplastics. The tester conforms to all National and International melt flow resistance standards, including BS EN ISO 1133 and ASTM D1238. Any temperature within 120°C-450°C (248°F-842°F) can be accurately controlled.

R&D Quality at QA Prices

The user-friendly Melt Flow Indexer combines the high accuracy and precision essential for quality control and R&D.

High Accuracy

The built-in microprocessor maintains temperature control to within ±0.2°C (±0.4°F), with rapid ramp-up to set point. Extruded material is automatically cut-off by the built-in scraper mechanism at preset intervals, controllable to ±0.01 seconds.

Easy to Use

The clear multi-line LCD display and tactile-feedback membrane keypad allow fast, accurate input of test parameters and provide continuous display of settings during testing.

Out-of-the-Box Operation

Testing melt flow resistance has never been so economical or easy to do! The Melt Flow Indexer is supplied complete with spare barrel and die, plus all the accessories and weights necessary for maintenance and operation. Nothing else to buy-just plug it in and start testing!
