Creep Testing Machine Model MT 070

Sci-tech Creep Testing Machine Model MTM 070 is designed to carry out practices on specimens of plastic materials. Due to the dependence on the temperature in this type of tests, there is a temperature conditioning box where the experiments are carried out. It is made of acrylic, which allows to observe the practices development. The conditioning box is divided in two sections: the first has the placement for an isotherm bag that allows heat or cold the inside of the box, and the second one is for the placement of the specimens. Inside it, there is also an alcohol thermometer to measure the working temperature.

Item Description

• Ideal for student use and classroom demonstrations
• Demonstrates the three phases of creep
• Demonstrates effect of temperature on creep
• Compact and easily stored
• Supplied with weights and test specimens
• Inexpensive specimens readily available in lead and plastics
• Completely self-contained – needs no other parts

Technical Specifications

– Bench-top unit.
– Anodized aluminum structure and panel in painted steel (epoxy paint).
– Main metallic elements in stainless steel.
– Diagram in the front panel with similar distribution to the elements in the real unit.
– Temperature conditioning box made of acrylic. Here, the adequate temperature conditions to carry out the experiment are created.
– Inside it, the specimen which will be experimented is located. To reach the temperature, an isotherm bag will be used. To know the experiment conditions, there is a thermometer at the upper part of the box.
– Load arm. It is a stainless steel beam on which the loads are applied to the specimen. It pivots on a shaft inserted in the support column. Tensile stress range: 0-35 N/mm .
– Support screw for supporting the load arm before starting the experiment.
– Clamps. They are into the space to fasten the specimens.
– Allen key, of 3 mm, to adjust the dial indicator.
– A dial indicator of 10 mm of measurement. It measures the elongation of the specimen which is under the load and temperature concrete conditions.
– The specimens are flat type, made in different plastic materials. They have a section of 5 mm x 2 mm to make easier the experiments.
– They are made of PVC and Polypropylene.
– Set of weights and support hook, composed of: Support hook of 672 gr.
1 Weight of 1000 gr.
