A Pipe Cutting and Chamfering Machine is used for cutting and chamfering large diameter plastic and PVC pipes by pipe manufacturers, quality inspectors and research institutions. A pipe is clasped into position with a pneumatic clamp. Once the clamp is secure, the motor will start automatically with cutting and chamfering done synchronously. Chamfering is when the end of the pipe is cut to form a bevel in order to facilitate joints. The blade stops automatically again on release of the compaction.
A Carbon and Sulphur Analyzer is used to analyze the percentage of carbon and sulphur present in a sample. The sample is heated in a furnace in an oxygen rich environment to form carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and sulphur dioxide which can be measured in the gas stream leaving the furnace. The measured data is compared to the mass of the original sample in order to determine a mass percentage of carbon and sulphur.
An Oxygen Permeability Tester is used for advanced oxygen permeability testing in quality control, research and development applications. A sample of plastic, metal, paper or rubber is mounted as a sealed semi-barrier between two chambers. One chamber is purged with Nitrogen while the other is filled with oxygen at a controlled pressure. Oxygen permeates the barrier into the Nitrogen stream and is measured by a state of the art coulometric detector.
A Spout Insert and Sealing Machine is used for the mass production of packages with spouts and heat sealed packages. Plastic spouts are inserted into pouches and sealed for use in detergent refill, juice packaging and other applications. Heat sealing is accomplished by welding a thermoplastic product to another using heat and pressure. Qualitest supplies a highly advanced Spout Insert and Sealing Machine – QT-Pack-SX to insert a variety of spouts and seal bags of different diameters and lengths e.g. standing-up bags and 3-side sealing bags, doypacks, irregular bags and cubic bags.

A gradient heat seal tester is used to determine the heat seal ability of various surfaces, sealant layers of film, laminates, composites, polymers etc. The heat seal strength is expressed as a function of temperature, time and pressure. Qualitest supplies a state of the art Gradient Heat Seal Tester – QT-GHS for heat seal testing that is compliant with ASTM F2029, QB/T 2358 and YBB 00122003.
Digital force gauges are used in many different industries for tension and compression measurement. Qualitest supplies state of the art digital force gauges that can be used from the most basic to the most advanced applications.
When companies use pipes in their operations, such as transporting natural resources through pipes, it is important that the pipes are tested for quality control to guarantee that they function seamlessly. Qualitest is a top global source for testing solutions to ensure that pipes have the proper integrity and durability for their real world application.
When producing plastic pipes for infrastructure, the quality of the plastic must be good enough to withstand high levels of stress over long periods of usage. To ensure that plastic pipes are suitable for the task, Qualitest offers two state-of-the-art testing instruments for pipe manufacturers, research laboratories, and inspection institutions.
When selecting plastic materials for high-quality products, such as automobiles and airplanes, manufacturers must account for their sensitivity to high temperatures. To ensure that plastic products can withstand the rigors of their real-world application, manufacturers can measure the softening point of the material (VICAT softening temperature, or VST) and the temperature at which a sample deforms (heat deflection temperature, or HDT).

If plastic pipes are not made properly, hydrostatic pressure can cause them to burst. To determine the resistance of thermoplastic pipes, a hydrostatic pressure testing system subjects the pipes to constant internal water pressure at a constant temperature. Qualitest's Hydrostatic Pressure Tester provides user-friendly and accurate results to test the strength of thermoplastic pipes.
The QualiPERM Blaine Air Permeability Tester is the ideal instrument for measuring the fineness of the cement, which companies do to determine such qualities such as speed of setting and rate of strength development. The Tester works by applying air pressure through a sample under pre-defined conditions to simulate different industrial standards.
Companies use several different methods for hardness testing, the most common being Brinell, Rockwell, Vickers, Leeb. However, there are disadvantages to each method: for Rockwell and Brinell, testing may lead to damage on the surface of a sample; for Vickers, only professional technicians are able to carry out tests smoothly; and for Leebs, the testing method is indirect, which may lead to a large deviation when converted to other scales.
To study the properties of materials as they change temperature, companies often use a thermal analyzer on product samples. There are many types of thermal analyzers, spanning different properties that can be measured as a sample undergoes various material changes.
