CFT-100/500 EX Flowtester
Precision measurements of melt flow rate, shear rate, and viscosity
Designed to maximize ease-of-use and safety
The CFT-EX instruments are designed with ease-of-use in mind. Besides providing accurate data, they are engineered to simplify cleaning and reduce exposure to high-temperature surfaces. The rotating furnace allows users to access the furnace so that cleaning at high temperatures can be performed. The cylinder head also rotates outward so that the piston can be easily inserted even when the sample has not fully melted. Users can also swing a front guard into place to prevent disturbances during measurements.
High Pressure Ranges
The weight-set system allows for pressures of up to 50 MPa in .4903 MPa increments (CFT-500EX) or 10 MPa in 0.098 MPa increments (CFT-100EX) to be applied to the samples for better simulation of real-life extrusion parameters. has not fully melted. Users can also swing a front guard into place to prevent disturbances during measurements.
Wide variety of dies and accessories available for a multitude of measurement needs
Besides standard tool steel dies, we offer stainless steel, ultra-hard alloy, and corrosion-resistant dies to ensure that the CFT-EX can withstand your applications. Split dies and T-dies that can be disassembled are also available to reduce the difficulty of cleaning.
The preforming hand press compresses powder samples into an easily-tested pellet that reduces messy sample deposition and data artifacts.
A cooling fan can be attached to the furnace to reduce cooling time and improve productivity.
