Constant Temperature Semi-Automatic Ductility Testing Machine designed explicitly for testing the ductility and elastic recovery of bituminous materials. Features a 6" LCD touch screen control panel. This integrated touch screen allows the user to choose between the ductility or recovery test methods. The custom menu allows for the input of desired speed and time parameters. During testing, the distance traveled by the specimen is displayed and a simple touch of the screen can record the distance traveled upon breakage of the briquet. A motor jogging feature permits locking of the sample carriage without additional movement after briquet sample is loaded into the machine. Equipped with a solid state, thermostatically controlled bath and circulator to control temperature within ± 0.9°F (±0.5°C) in the range of 35-90°F (1.7-32.2°C). Circulated water is directed through stainless steel tubes beneath a false bottom in the trough to provide efficient heat transfer. Measures the distance of elongation of a bitumen sample when a briquet specimen is pulled apart at a specified speed and temperature. Supplied with Circulation Bath, Remote Temperature Probe, Connection Tubing, Lexan cover, three standard brass briquet molds and brass base plate. Conforms to: ASTM D113, D6084 and related specifications. 115V/60hz. Shipping weight: 430 Lbs.
