EN 1427 – ASTM D36 – AASHTO T53 – GOST 11506-73
For determination of the Softening Point of Bitumen.
With glass-ceramic plate, halogen radiator for heating and magnetic stirrer with adjustable speed built-in underneath. Operation is via a touch panel. A microprocessor-controlled regulation with continuous temperature measurement in the beaker ensures a standard-compliant temperature rise of 5 K/min. The temperature rise can be monitored in real-time on the touch display. The passage of the balls is detected by a light barrier on the right and left and the respective temperature value is displayed digitally. At the same time, the difference between sample 1 and 2 is output. The test data is stored in an internal protocol and can be called up at any time in the unit or transferred via a USB interface.
Three test modes can be preselected, one for water from 30 to 80° C and one for glycerol from 80 to 150° C. Besides, we offer an optional test procedure for silicone oil from 80 to 200°C.
Complete with beaker 600 ml, stirring rod and insert frame with 2 test rings, test balls and 2 ball centring devices. The user languages are German, English and French.
