The Basic Melt Flow Indexer, often abbreviated as "MFI", is an affordable-price tabletop instrument used to test the melt flow resistance (MFR) of a wide range of thermo-plastic materials. 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.
TMI's Basic 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.
The user-friendly Melt Flow Indexer combines the high accuracy and precision essential for quality control and R&D.
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.
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.
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!
