Materials testing

This two-page, full-color bulletin describes the company's advanced H100K-S benchtop universal testing machine which is said to test the mechanical and physical properties of a wide range of materials, as well as finished components. The compact, extremely accurate H100K-S testing machine determines such properties as tension, compression, flexure and shear of rubber, plastics, composites and adhesives, according to the literature. Bulletin BTA-1 describes the machine's many features, including the tilt and swivel control unit on the load frame, easy-to-read backlit liquid crystal display, graphic or numeric display mode and alpha numeric data entry. The H100K-S testing machine's capacity is 100,000 N (22,500 lbf.). Its speed range is 0.001 to 500 mm/min. (0.001 to 20 in./min.). General product specifications and color photographs of the unit are included in the bulletin. (Tinius Olsen Testing Machine, P.O. Box 429, Willow Grove, PA 19090-0429)

Thermocouples, RTDs

This literature features temperature sensors most commonly used in the mixing of rubber and other abrasive compounds. Special consideration has been given to the abrasion resistant measuring tips, the notched mounting method configurations (most commonly used in internal mixers) and the critical temperature response time requirements. These sensors are available in both thermocouple and RTD types. Special construction assemblies are also available. (Pyromation, 5211 Industrial Rd., Fort Wayne, IN 46825)

Nitrogen/sulfur analyzer

A color brochure features the Model 9000VSA nitrogen/sulfur solids autosampler. This user-friendly analyzer performs total nitrogen and/or total sulfur determinations on solid samples in as little as five minutes, according to the literature. The brochure provides application information and instrument specifications and explains principles of Pyrochemiluminescent nitrogen and Pyrofluorescent sulfur analysis. The 9000 VS is said to deliver excellent reproducibility and increased productivity by eliminating repetitive tasks of manual sample introduction. A 53 position solids autosampler is said to provide trouble-free, unattended operation. The easy-to-load, gravity fed system is controlled by the company's custom designed software, according to the literature. Operational parameters can be stored and recalled as needed. The system is said to be ideal for automating polyolefin additives analysis. (Antek Instruments, 300 Bammel Westfield Rd., Houston, TX 77090-3533)

Rubber process analyzer

The Auto RPA 2000 automated robber process analyzer is featured in a two-page bulletin. The RPA 2000 is said to increase test efficiency with automated sample loading and unloading. With the features and benefits of the original RPA 2000, the automated version is said to offer unparalleled user convenience and test efficiency by eliminating the need for the operator to be present at the start of each test. The automation system loads samples with a pickup arm, placing them between two layers of film in the RPA 2000 test cavity. W hen a test is completed, the system is said to reliably remove test specimens from the cavity by pulling on the film, according to the company's literature.
