Universities around the world often need to simulate intense environmental conditions in their laboratories, which allows them to test materials that will be used in the construction of crucial infrastructure. To create the ideal conditions for testing, Qualitest’s Slab tester has the capacity to either freeze or thaw specimens (at temperatures up to -32°C and +40°C) to determine how different temperatures and conditions affect a material’s long-term durability.
Qualitest recently delivered a Slab Freeze Thaw Tester to the University of Dundee, one of the UK's leading universities, internationally recognized for its expertise across a range of disciplines. To facilitate testing in their physics department, our Slab Tester is designed to carry out freezing and thawing tests on a wide range of specimens. The Slab Tester can accommodate materials such as concrete, natural stones, and even tile-glue specimens.
Constructed using solid stainless steel, and with optional accessories including a state-of-the-art programming tool and a flooding mechanism, Qualitest’s Slab Tester is the most durable and customizable solution on the market. Our Slab Tester also conforms to several European and international standards, conducting tests according to the most rigorous standards including EN 12390-9, EN 1339, EN 1367-1, DIN V 18004, and 1340:2002.
Qualitest is proud to support universities around the world, helping to advance essential research to make global infrastructure safer and more durable than ever before.
