Drop Weight Impact Tester for Plastic Pipes

300C (ISO 3127, EN744, EN1411) & 300D (ASTM D2444)

Falling Weight Impact Tester for Plastics Pipes - 300C

The Falling Weight Impact Tester is used to perform impact tests on plastic pipes, conforming to ISO 3127, EN744 and EN1411. Test pieces are subjected to blows from a falling striker, of specified mass and shape, dropped from a known height onto specified positions around the circumference of the test piece. The true impact rate of the batch, or production run from an extruder, is estimated.

There are two test methods – round-the-clock method and staircase method.

Falling Weight Impact Tester for Plastics Pipes - 300D

It is mainly used to determine of the impact resistance of thermoplastic pipes and fittings under specified conditions of impact by means of a tup (falling weight). Three interchangeable striking noses are used on the tup, differing in the geometrical configuration. Two specimen holders are described.
