According to EN 196-3, ASTM C191 Methode B, EN 480-2 optional equipment is required.* The eight measuring points are installed in a rectangular trough. Tests can be performed in air or in water bath with constant temperature (heat exchanger and cooler for constant water temperature), with programmed test sequences acc. EN. Test must be performed in humid air (>95%) acc. ASTM. The unit automatic records initial set time and final set time, as well as of setting plots. Weight of plunger and the Vicat needle are an additional 300 g ± 1 g. After each penetration the Vicat needle is automatically cleaned.
Scope of deliveryBase unit as a table model with the control unit and standard software for programmable test sequences and for data recording
