Product and Solutions
Minerva offers a range of plastics testers for the following parameters
- Melt Flow Indexing
- Heat Deflection / Vicat Testing
- Impact Strength – Charpy, Izod Tests
The MP1200 plastics melt flow index testing machine surpasses all the requirements of Procedure A and Procedures B, C and D testing. It features a new three zone band heater with three controllers that result in unparalleled temperature control of the furnace. The melt indexing system is available in either manual or motorized configurations. Options that enable automated testing such as the PPDT-1200 Automatic Timing Switch for Procedure B and the MWLD-1200 Motorized Loading and Weight Support are offered to complete the suite for the plastics melt indexing system.
The Model 303 and Model 603 heat deflection temperature / Vicat testers for plastics are offered with modular test frames that can be configured with optional accessories for either Vicat or deflection temperature testing. The 303 (3 test stations capacity) and the 603 (6 test stations capacity) are offered with 2 test stations as standard with options to increase the number of test stations as your testing requirements / frequency increase.
The Model IT503 and Model IT504 (with interlocking safety shield) plastics impact testing machines are capable of determining the impact resistance using either a Charpy or Izod configuration, without changing the entire pendulum. Pendulum capacity is easily changed by adding on any one of seven optional weight sets. A “Low-Blow” feature is standard, which provides a convenient and reliable method for releasing the pendulum from lower than “standard” drop heights for testing at lower impact velocities and energy levels.
