The SK Melt Flow Index tester is used for evaluating the flow properties of molten plastics or resins. The Melt flow Index of thermoplastic materials is defined as the rate of flow (in grams per ten minutes) of extrudates of molten resins through a jet of a particular length and diameter. The test is carried out under prescribed condition of temperature, load and piston position in a cylindrical cavity inside a heated metallic tube barrel. The SK Melt Flow Index tester accurately provides all standard terms of temperature and pressure strictly as per ASTM standards.
The SK Melt Flow Index tester is fitted with a Microprocessor based PID Temperature controller, with a temperature range from ambient to 400°C. It has a resolution of 0.1°C and an accuracy of ± 0.1°C. The instrument incorporates a digital presettable timer with a range of up to 59 minutes; 59 seconds and buzzer output. The provision of automatic sample cutting ensures the accuracy and smooth operation.
Various standard accessories are included, namely, Orifice, Piston, Spoon, Spanner, Plumb Line, Funnel, Material charger, Mirror, Tweezers, Barrel cleaner, Orifice cleaner, Sample cutter and Accessory stand.
The equipment is built on a rigid metal base plate to ensure stability during operation. The instrument strictly adheres to ASTM D1238-1992 standard. The SK Melt Flow Index tester is finished in Autumn Gray & Blue combination painting. Further, a bright chrome / zinc plating has been added to impart a corrosion resistant finish. The Instrument comes complete with an instruction manual; Electrical Wiring Diagram & Calibration Certificate traceable to NABL approved Labs.
