It is used for the automatic determination of Brittleness point according to ISO 812, ISO 974, ASTM D746 and ASTM D2137. The price includes the instrument and software, but not the computer.
The test rig is raised by pneumatic cylinders, which require an air supply of 6 Bar. The brittleness tester is designed as a falling weight tester, where the speed is set by the height and the energy by the attached weights. The computer controls the temperature rise and measures the temperature at impact. The result from each stroke is entered by typing the result in the software. The speed is measured after the impact, to verify the speed loss during impact.
